NXP’s 1.5 kW RF power transistor sets new benchmark

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.

Freescale RF revenue drops four percent in Q2

Reflects slowing wireless CapEx spending
Announcing fiscal second quarter 2015 earnings results, Freescale reported RF segment revenue of $177 million, 3.8 percent below Q1 and 48 percent above last year's second quarter. The segment's revenue comes primarily from LDMOS power transistors used in cellular base stations. The company attributed the sequential decline to "slowing wireless capital expenditure spending in major markets, including China." The LTE build-out in China has fueled strong growth in the RF segment through 2014 and 2015, despite the slight decline in Q2.
