CEL Expands Its Formidable Power LDMOS FET Offering with Four New Renesas Devices Targeting 2-Way Radio and General Medium Power Applications

Santa Clara, CA — October 14, 2013 —  Renesas Electronics and California Eastern Laboratories (CEL) introduce the NE555 family of RF Discrete LD MOSFETs which were specifically designed to meet the demanding requirements of 2-Way Radios.  The NE555 series are also great medium power transistors for Automatic Metering Infrastructure, RFID readers, and general short range wireless applications.  

Key Features

  • RF output power options of 9W, 7W, and 2W at frequencies up to 1GHz, with nominal 7.5V supply.
  • High Power Added Efficiencies in the 52-60% range for 915MHz, and 63-73% range for 157MHz.
  • Built-in ESD protection, and high mismatch tolerance (ruggedness).
  • High thermal conductivity packaging. 

Pricing, Packaging and Availability

Samples are available now at CEL.  Pricing is as follows:

NE5550979A 9W LDMOS FET:      $3.50 @ 10K pcs
NE5550779A 7W LDMOS FET:      $3.00 @ 10K pcs
NE5550279A 2W LDMOS FET:      $1.60 @ 10K pcs
NE5550234    2W LDMOS FET:      $0.80 @ 10K pcs

CEL has evaluation boards optimized at 460MHz and 915MHz, and offers extensive design support.
