NXP Semiconductors Introduces New Plug-and-Play Evaluation Tools to Accelerate Applications in RF Energy
May 18 15
NXP Semiconductors N.V. unveiled new plug-and play evaluation tools designed to enable fast and easy testing of new RF energy applications. Applications range from solid-state cooking, RF sparkplugs, RF plasma lighting to RF heating/drying, medical therapy and more. The evaluation tools will be demonstrated alongside NXP's new RF energy power amplifier in copper flange package (air cavity plastic third generation, ACP-3) with breakthrough thermal performance and NXP's ninth generation of LDMOS (laterally diffused metal oxide semiconductor) which can be suited for S-band radar applications at the IEEE MTT International Microwave Symposium (IMS) 2015, booth #1141, at the Phoenix Convention Center. Designed from the ground up to enable engineers with simple plug-and-play testing for RF energy applications, the NXP evaluation tools feature control and measurement functions efficiently viewable from one screen. It also saves development time by eliminating the need for low-level programming and enabling all possible algorithms be set and tested at once. To further shorten time to market, the evaluation kit allows developers to use LabVIEW codes as example codes for final programming. This added functionality allows design teams to test without interrupting lab design workflows. Power Amplifier in ACP-3 package, BLC2425M9XS250: Delivering breakthrough thermal performance management with 30% improvement compared to existing products, NXP's new amplifier enables product designers to improve, simplify and reduce cost for RF designs by saving board space. S-Band Radar Applications - Gen9 LDMOS RF power transistors, BLS9G2934LS400: NXP announced that its ninth generation (Gen9) LDMOS RF power transistors can achieve required power and efficiency levels in S-band radar applications. S-band radar applications is a fast growing sub-segment in RF power applications. S-band radar applications include weather radar, surface ship radar and some communications satellites.
