125 W GaN HEMT Covers 1 to 2700 MHz
February 01, 2015
FULL TEXT Freescale Semiconductor Tempe, Ariz. The significant advantages of gallium nitride (GaN) have mostly been discussed in relation to delivering high peak power in narrowband pulsed applications, primarily active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar. However, as GaN devices are inherently broadband, they are also appealing for use in electronic warfare (EW) or applications with multiple narrow frequency bands, such as military radios. To serve these, Freescale Semiconductor has introduced the MMRF5014H, a GaN on SiC HEMT power transistor that delivers at least 125 W, CW or pulsed, up to 2700 MHz and 100 W CW from 200 to 2500 MHz. FEATURES AND BENEFITS

Mind the Gap
December 01, 2014
FULL TEXT Wide bandgap semiconductors will spur new demand for power electronics. "Mind the g ap" is an expression that's frequently heard on the London Underground. It also applies to manufacturers that build products equipped with battery chargers, converters, inverters, regulators, transformers, transistors and other types of power electronics. In England, "mind the gap" is a polite w ay to warn people to be careful when entering and exiting trains. In the manufacturing world, it means engineers should pay attention to wide bandgap (WBG) semi - conductors.
