Financial Press Releases
The MRFX series of 65 V LDMOS devices targets industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) applications such as laser generation, plasma processing, magnetic-resonance imaging, skin treatment and diathermy, as well as the growing segment of RF Energy where transistors replace vacuum tubes in industrial heating machines. They are also designed for radio and TV broadcast transmitters.
“In less than a year, more than 100 customers have already adopted NXP’s 65 V LDMOS,” said Pierre Piel, senior director and general manager for multi-market RF power at NXP. “Beyond the performance leadership, it is the unprecedented availability of enabling tools that explains this success. Namely, NXP’s power blocks with easy to reproduce designs and available system and software enablement. That means simplified RF design and fast time to market, so our customers can focus on the core value of their products.”
65 V LDMOS made its debut in 2017 with the MRFX1K80H device, capable of 1800 W CW (continuous wave) in an air-cavity ceramic package. Many new reference circuits for the MRFX1K80H have since been designed, enabling RF designers to jump-start their development at 27, 64, 81.36, 87.5-108, 128, 175, 174-230 and 230 megahertz (MHz).
Focusing on ease of use to enable faster development time and design reuse from previous 50 V solutions, NXP recently added to its 65 V offering:
- MRFX1K80N: 1800 W over-molded plastic package version of the MRFX1K80H device, enabling a 30% lower thermal resistance (0.06 °C / W).
- MRFX600H: 600 W solution in a small footprint, featuring an unmatched 12.5-ohm output impedance to fit a 4:1 output transformer.
- MRFX035H: 35 W driver of previous final-stage devices. It comes with an unmatched 50-ohm output impedance, for the most compact board layouts.
Power supply manufacturers are enabling 65 V solutions.
Availability and Development Support
All 27, 64, 81.36, 87.5-108, 128, 175, 174-230 and 230 MHz reference circuits for the MRFX1K80H are available. The MRFX600H transistor is released, supported by 87.5-108 MHz and 230 MHz reference circuits. The MRFX035H transistor is released, supported by 1.8-54 MHz, 30-512 MHz and 230 MHz reference circuits.
