Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for new package options on an RF power LDMOS transistor from Freescale Semiconductor Inc. (Freescale).

The MRFE6VS25 is an RF power transistor designed for both narrowband and broadband industrial, scientific and medical (ISM), broadcast, and aerospace applications operating at frequencies from 1.8 to 2000 MHz. It is fabricated using Freescale’s enhanced ruggedness platform and is suitable for use in applications where high voltage standing wave ratios (VSWRs) are encountered.

Previously available only in Freescale's traditional plastic package (MRFE6VS25N), which provides performance at an attractive cost, the device is now available in the RF LDMOS industry standard ceramic package (MRFE6VS25L) and a plastic gull wing (MRFE6VS25GN) package. Benefits of the new gull wing package include reduced cost, improved consistency of RF performance, and improved assembly quality that allows for high volume pick-and-place manufacturing for this surface mount package.

Additional key features of the MRFE6VS25 include:

  • Wide operating frequency range
  • Extreme ruggedness
  • Impedances optimized for broadband operation
  • Integrated stability enhancements
  • Low thermal resistance
  • Extended ESD protection circuit
  • In tape and reel (R1 suffix = 500 units, 24 mm tape width, 13-inch reel)

The device is in stock and available for immediate delivery.
