An ideal RF Power Technology for ISM, Broadcast and Commercial Aerospace Applications
January 16, 2012
RF laterally diffused MOS (LDMOS) is currently the dominant device technology used in high-power RF power amplifier (PA) applications for frequencies ranging from 1 MHz to greater than 3.5 GHz. This paper will include device and design considerations that specifically target enhancing ruggedness performance. The features of the products using this platform will also be presented.

In a recent market study, researchers estimated that by the year 2015, manufacturers will be shipping more than a billion IEEE 802.11ac radios annually. The figure is impressive, especially because 802.11ac does not yet exist as a public standard. So one may be wondering, "What is this 802.11ac specification...Read More
