Freescale Releases Its First 11 RF Power Products Suitable for U.S.-Based Defense Market Applications

Freescale Semiconductor (NYSE: FSL), a global leader in radio frequency (RF) power transistors, today announced the availability of 11 new commercial RF power LDMOS products that can meet the requirements of U.S. defense electronics applications. This is the first set of products released as part of the company’s strategic defense initiatives for its RF power business, announced in June 2013.

Freescale now offers the level of support provided in other markets to U.S. defense systems customers, enabling them to optimize the performance of these RF devices for radar, military communications and electronic warfare applications. The products are included in Freescale’s Product Longevity Program to assure their availability for a minimum of 10 or 15 years, depending on the product. In addition, Freescale's dedicated team of RF defense market specialists have ITAR-compliant systems and processes to enable them to work with defense customers on projects that are subject to the ITAR requirements.

“These new RF power products utilize Freescale’s latest LDMOS and Airfast technologies to bring best-in-class performance to defense electronics customers,” said Ritu Favre, senior vice president and general manager of Freescale’s RF business. “In addition, Freescale maintains the RF power market’s only U.S.-based LDMOS device fabrication facility, and all assembly and testing is performed in Freescale-owned facilities.”

Among the notable devices now available are:

  • The MMRF1305HS – a ruggedized 100 watt RF power LDMOS transistor capable of coverage spanning 30 MHz to 1000 MHz with only two bands. Capable of performing into 65:1 VSWRs, this device is suitable for high load mismatch applications.
  • The MMRF1306H – a highly rugged 1.25 kW RF power LDMOS transistor designed for use in high VSWR CW and pulse applications such as HF, VHF and low-band UHF radar and radio communications. Multiple applications circuits are available to demonstrate device performance at different frequencies and signal types.

A complete list and related details for the devices released today are available at www.freescale.com/RFmilitary.

About RF Power LDMOS Products

Freescale’s LDMOS devices deliver high linearity, broad instantaneous bandwidth and advanced plastic packaging that replaces vacuum tubes with solid state technology. The company’s ruggedized RF power LDMOS products for commercial applications are ideally suited to defense requirements, with the ability to handle extreme load mismatches (VSWR) greater than 65:1 and enhanced protection from electrostatic discharge (ESD). Freescale’s LDMOS devices for defense electronics span frequency ranges to more than 3 GHz, with RF power outputs up to 1.25 kW, which reduces part counts and glass tubes, and enables the move to solid state.

Products purchased for use in defense applications are planned for inclusion in Freescale’s Product Longevity Program, with assured supply for a minimum of 10 or 15 years, depending on the product.
