NXP Semiconductors announced the third generation of Airfast products with the release of four LDMOS transistors for macro base stations. Airfast 3 improves transistor performance in efficiency, gain, RF output power and signal bandwidth, with the instantaneous bandwidth to cover an entire cellular band using a single device.
NXP Semiconductors N.V. introduced the industry’s largest portfolio of broadband 28 V LDMOS two-stage, dual-path Doherty-optimized Integrated Circuits (ICs) for small cell base stations. As part of NXP’s leading RF power transistor portfolio, the new LDMOS ICs are designed to provide RF power, efficiency, and gain in all current and proposed frequency bands, from 700 to 3800 MHz, with RF output power of 2.5 to 12 W.
NXP Semiconductors introduced the most powerful RF transistor in any technology operating at any frequency. Designed to deliver 1.50 kW CW at 50V, the MRF1K50H can reduce the number of transistors in high-power RF amplifiers, which decreases amplifier size and bill of materials. The MRF1K50H operates up to 500 MHz for a broad range of applications from laser and plasma sources to particle accelerators, industrial welding machines, radio and VHF TV broadcast transmitters, and amateur radio linear amplifiers.
NXP Semiconductors™ N.V., a worldwide leader in advanced systems solutions for the world’s new virtualized networks, and Bell Labs, the industrial research division of Nokia, announced they are the first to create and demonstrate a universal access device that can be used to combine wireline and wireless access support. The device is capable of supporting wireline (cable, DSL/copper) and wireless (LTE, 5G) standards with a single modem.
NXP Semiconductors N.V., a worldwide leader in the cellular infrastructure market, announced the strategic alignment following the merger of NXP and Freescale of comprehensive products and technologies to meet the complete system challenges of 5G. NXP’s comprehensive portfolio of low and high power RF technologies are being combined to address 5G demands of bandwidth, linearity, power-efficiency and small form factor solutions.
In May, NXP announced an agreement that will facilitate the sale of its RF Power business. As part of our commitment to maintain an open dialogue with our customers, we are very pleased to report that we expect the announced divestment of the RF Power Business to be completed in Q4 of this year, subject to approval of regulatory authorities.
NXP Semiconductors held an Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders and Freescale Semiconductor held a Special General Meeting on NXP’s acquisition of Freescale. Both meetings approved the merger proposal with over 99 percent of the votes cast in favor.
