Wolfspeed Expands its LDMOS and GaN HEMT Offerings for Telecom and Radar Markets

Wolfspeed has released new LDMOS and GaN HEMT product offerings that enable smaller systems with greater reliability and efficiency.

Wolfspeed’s recent acquisition of the Infineon RF power business expanded its product portfolio, accelerating the company’s progress in developing innovations for telecommunications and aerospace/defense applications. The acquisition brings LDMOS technology and expertise to Wolfspeed, enabling the company to provide the optimal RF power solution to meet customers’ needs, regardless of the type of technology used.

The expansion includes Wolfspeed’s new 28V 2620-2690 MHz Asymmetric Doherty Transistor, which is an LDMOS Doherty transistor that utilizes LD12 technology. This and other LD12 components use a plastic over mold package that delivers the same performance as open cavity packages, offering significant increases in efficiency at a lower cost. Wolfspeed has industry-leading performance in such plastic packages, which can bring significant cost savings to telecom applications.

In the radar market, Wolfspeed is providing aerospace and defense operators better target discrimination and a longer detection range with the launch of the highest output power GaN products on the market, including a 1200W packaged GaN HEMT. The 1200W GaN HEMT sets a new industry benchmark for performance by delivering the highest output power for a GaN L-Band radar product on the market today. The device’s high-output power enables fewer devices to be used, resulting in simplified system architectures, lower materials costs, reduced energy consumption and increased system reaction time that is critical in defense and aerospace settings.

The new LDMOS and GaN HEMT technologies will be on display at the Wolfspeed booth #931 during IMS 2018 in Philadelphia from June 12-15.
