Ampleon announced a range of overmoulded plastic (OMP) RF power transistors using LDMOS technology. The BLP05H6xxxXR series power transistors are designed for broadcast and ISM transmitter or generator manufacturers, aiming FM / VHF radio and television broadcasting, as well as industrial, scientific and medical RF power generators.
Specific examples of terminal equipment applications include CO2 lasers, plasma, MRI medical scanners, particle acceleration, plasma lighting, FM radio and VHF digital TV.
The transistors feature a power range from 35W upto 700W CW (continuous wave), all utilizing the same SOT1223 package, and can be used in any RF power application from a high-frequency (HF) to 600MHz frequency range.
Able to withstand extreme load mismatch, the transistors are highly efficient, and reduce energy consumption and operating costs. Less cooling requirements make the system requirements simpler, which is beneficial to reduce the overall BOM.
