The device is a common source N-channel, enhancement-mode lateral field-effect RF power transistor. It is designed for high gain, broadband commercial and industrial applications. It operates at 7 V in common source mode at frequencies of up to 1 GHz. The device features the excellent gain, linearity and reliability of ST’s latest LDMOS technology, the PowerSO-10RF. The superior linearity performance makes it an ideal solution for portable radios. The PowerSO-10RF is the first true surface-mount device (SMD) plastic RF power package. It is based on the highly reliable PowerSO-10, the first ST-originated, JEDEC-approved, high-power SMD package. It has been optimized specifically for RF requirements, and offers excellent RF performance as well as ease of assembly.
