Freescale Expands RF Mobile Radio Portfolio with New Device for Handheld Applications
XI'AN, China --(Business Wire)--
Freescale Semiconductor (News - Alert) (NYSE: FSL), the leading provider of RF
power technology, today introduced a new 6W device for handheld
mobile radio applications called the AFT05MS006N. With this latest
addition to its flagship Airfast RF power solutions
portfolio, Freescale is the only supplier capable of supporting
all power levels of relevance to the mobile radio space, from 5W
handheld units to 75W digital mobile radios and base stations.
Though targeted for handheld mobile radio applications, the exceptional
flexibility and wide power range of the 6W AFT05MS006N make it broadly
applicable as a driver in higher powered mobile radio solutions, as
well. The 6W AFT05MS006N integrates circuitry to increase stability,
thereby simplifying design and supporting a wide range of operating
conditions. In addition, the new device is extremely rugged, enabling
optimal performance even in harsh operating conditions such as public
safety, professional mobile radio and machine-to-machine communications
"Freescale's new 6W device provides the high performance, small size,
and improved output power designers need to meet increasingly stringent
requirements for next-generation mobile radio products," said Ritu
Favre, senior vice president and general manager of Freescale's RF
Division. "With a product family that spans the handheld, mobile and
base station segments of the land mobile market, the breadth of the
Airfast RF power solutions portfolio enables the reuse of designs across
a range of mobile radio offerings, speeding time to market and
increasing both efficiency and productivity."
The newest addition to the Airfast RF power solution portfolio is
designed to survive > 65:1 VSWR, even with simultaneous overvoltage and
overdrive stressing the amplifier and its RF power transistors.
Additionally, the efficiency of the Airfast devices is on average 65
percent, an improvement when compared to module-based solutions, which
typically range from 25 to 40 percent in efficiency.
Freescale also recently released to production the previously announced
AFT09MS015N, which is an ideal solution for the new class of 10W mobile
radio designs. The device features the high gain, extreme ruggedness and
wide bandwidth capability typical of the Airfast portfolio for mobile
radio applications. For more information go to freescale.com/RFpower.
Product specifications for AFT05MS006N
The new Airfast RF power LDMOS device is housed in the PLD-1.5W package.
Other features include:
Survives > 65:1 VSWR with simultaneous overvoltage and overdrive
High power gain of greater than 16 dB for fewer stages and improved
High efficiency of greater than 60 percent simplifies cooling and
enables smaller radio form factors
Reference circuits available for VHF, UHF and 800 MHz bands
The AFT05MS006N and AFT09MS015N are available in production quantities
now. Reference designs and other support tools are available to
design engineers. For more information, visit www.freescale.com/RFpower,
