THE new Sirenza Microdevices’ SLD-1026Z is a robust 3W high performance LDMOS transistor, available from Caelera , designed for operation from 10 to 2700MHz.
The SLD-1026Z is the first LDMOS transistor offered by Sirenza housed in an RoHS compliant plastic-encapsulated surface mount package, Sirenza’s proprietary new low thermal resistance SOF-26 package.
Operating from 28V, 50mA quiescent current, the SLD-1026Z provides 19dB gain, 35 percent drain efficiency, and 28dBc 3rd order intermodulation products, at 3W output power.
It features a 3W output P1dB, single polarity supply voltage, gain of 19dB at 915MHz, 35% efficiency at 3W CW, and integrated ESD protection.
The high gain and efficiency of the SLD-1026Z makes it suitable for RF power amplifier applications. The proprietary SOF-26 plastic package also makes it a suitable choice for cost sensitive applications.
Applications include base station driver PAs, repeaters, point-to-point radios, RFID, and transmitters for HF, UHF, and VHF broadcast equipment, and avionics / military radios.
