Ampleon Develops 915 MHz LDMOS PA Pallet for Magnetron Replacement

Ampleon has introduced the BPF0910H9X600, a 600-Watt RF Power LDMOS pallet for industrial, scientific, and medical applications operating in the 915 MHz ISM frequency band. Based on RF power transistors using Ampleon’s 9th generation of 50V LDMOS process, this solid-state amplifier pallet is specifically designed for companies wanting to speed up time-to-market by using a ready-made RF amplifier rather than embark on the time-consuming process of developing their own design. The pallet particularly suits industrial heating applications such as bulk food processing, drying wood, or plasma generation for cleaning and material processing.

Multiple pallets can be combined to produce a higher output power and can replace older magnetron based designs often used in industrial applications such as drying, processing and curing materials or plasma generation. The amplifier operates from 902 to 928 MHz and is matched to 50-ohms at the input and output, simplifying the integration into RF systems. It requires a 50V DC supply and is very efficient (typically 68%) reducing electricity consumption and operating costs. Compared with a magnetron, the BPF0910H9X600 offers better reliability and does not require a high voltage power supply. 

This RF Power LDMOS module is an ideal replacement for legacy magnetron systems. The BPF0910H9X600 is available direct from Ampleon or through their distributor, RFMW.
