Extremely Rugged LDMOS Ups the Power: NXP Unveils BLF188XR

Extremely Rugged LDMOS Ups the Power: NXP Unveils BLF188XR 
Newest Member of Popular XR Family of RF Power Transistors for the
Toughest Engineering Environments 
EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS and SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) --
06/04/13 --  NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI) today introduced
the BLF188XR -- the newest member of its XR family of "eXtremely
Rugged" LDMOS RF power transistors. Designed for the toughest
engineering environments, the BLF188XR delivers improved ruggedness
in real-world conditions, capable of withstanding a severe load
mismatch with VSWR greater than 65:1 at 5 dB of compression. The
BLF188XR is capable of providing an outstanding 1600 W of peak output
power and can operate as high as 60 V, and still pass extreme
ruggedness testing. Other key features include stronger integrated
ESD protection allowing the BLF188XR to be used in a Class C mode of
operation, and several enhancements that make the XR device easy to
design in and tune in multiple applications.  
Another interesting feature of the BLF188XR is its excellent
linearity, making it a very interesting candidate for high-power
linear applications. The BLF188XR is ideal for large-scale
industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) applications in frequency
ranges under 300 MHz, while the popular BLF578XR series is
recommended for frequency ranges up to 500 MHz. NXP is showcasing the
BLF188XR this week at the IEEE MTT-S International Microwave
Symposium (IMS 2013), and a video of the live demo is available here:

"Our 'eXtremely Rugged' family now delivers even more ruggedness to
run with the most awkward RF loads -- easily outperforming VDMOS
performance, ruggedness and reliability using NXP's latest
high-voltage LDMOS technology," said Mark Murphy, director of
marketing, RF power business line, NXP Semiconductors. "Building on
the success of the BLF578XR, the new BLF188XR extends our portfolio,
and brings extra ruggedness, linearity, power and simplicity in
design. And building on our proven track record as a leading RF power
supplier in ISM markets, we've been able to design the BLF188XR as a
highly compelling solution for a broad range of low-frequency
applications, such as lasers, MRI, RF lighting and RF drying, as well
as VHF/FM broadcast transmitters."
