UltraRF Inc. (Sunnyvale, CA), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cree Inc., announced its new UPF19060 discrete RF power transistor, targeted to meet wireless infrastructure requirements. The UPF19060 UltraGOLD is a laterally-diffused metal-oxide silicon (LDMOS) transistor. It features industry-standard matching and is suitable as a drop-in replacement for Motorola MRF19060. The transistor is designed to operate as a Class A or Class AB high-power linear amplifier in PCS and GSM base station applications, operating in the 1930 MHz to 1990 MHz band.
The UPF19060 transistor operates at 26V with an RF output power rating of 60 watts. UltraRF claims that it has a high level of performance, industry-standard packaging and a demonstrated median time to failure (MTTF) of approximately 20 years.
"Our core UltraGOLD die has been shipped in high-volume for several years. We are proud of our quick time to market with our LDMOS product line and our new family of industry standard products for 2001," stated John Quinn, UltraRF vice president.
The UPF19060 discrete power transistor is now available in production quantities.
