Ampleon has announced the release of a range of overmoulded plastic (OMP) RF power transistors using rugged LDMOS technology.

Aimed at manufacturers of broadcast and ISM transmitters or generators, target markets for the BLP05H6xxxXR series transistors are FM/VHF radio and TV broadcasting, and industrial, scientific and medical RF power generators.Specific examples of end equipment applications include CO2 plasma lasers, MRI medical scanners, particle accelerators, plasma lighting, FM radio, and VHF digital TV.

Ranging in power from 35 to 700W continuous wave, all of these rugged RF power transistors utilise the same SOT1223 package and can be used in any RF power application in the HF to 600MHz frequency range.

Claimed to be able to withstand extreme load mismatch conditions, the transistors feature high efficiency, reducing energy usage and operating costs. As less cooling is needed, system requirements are simpler, which is beneficial for overall bill of material costs.
