Ampleon has strengthened its portfolio of advanced yet cost-effective RF power amplifier solutions by announcing the availability of two new wideband amplifier series: the 32 V-rated BLP15M9Sxxx and the 50 V-rated BLP15H9Sxxx devices. They support frequencies of up to 2 GHz and are capable of both continuous wave (CW) and pulsed signal operation, exhibiting elevated levels of stability.
Both families, BLP15M9Sxxx and BLP15H9Sxxx, are based on the company’s 9th generation LDMOS and high-voltage LDMOS technologies respectively. The BLP15MSxxx family comprises dedicated devices offering 100 W, 70 W, and 30 W and the BLP15H9Sxxx family offers devices delivering 100 W, 30 W, and 10 W. The BLP15M9Sxxx devices deliver efficiencies of around 75 % and the BLP15H9Sxxx devices typically attain 65% efficiency.
The breadth of frequencies these amplifier ICs can support means that they are highly suited to an extensive array of different applications. These applications span from particle accelerators and plasma generators through MRI imaging equipment, industrial heating systems, radar implementations, and Broadcast.
Ampleon’s BLP15M9Sxxx and BLP15H9Sxxx LDMOS amplifiers are supplied in compact SOT1482-1 (straight lead) and SOT1483-1 (Gullwing) packages. Their highly robust construction ensures ongoing reliability. The use of plastic packaging helps to ensure that superior thermal performance is maintained, while also keeping unit costs down. Dual-side electro-static discharge (ESD) protection is incorporated into each device too.
