The PD55015-E is a common source N-channel, enhancement-mode lateral field-effect RF power transistor. It is designed for high gain, broad band commercial and industrial applications. It operates at 12 V in common source mode at frequencies of up to 1 GHz. The PD55015-E boasts the excellent gain, linearity and reliability thanks to ST’s latest LDMOS technology mounted in the first true SMD plastic RF power package, the PowerSO-10RF.
The PD55015-E’s superior linearity performance makes it an ideal solution for car mobile radios.
The PowerSO-10RF plastic package is designed for high reliability, and is the first JEDEC-approved, high power SMD package from ST. It has been optimized for RF requirements and offers excellent RF performance and ease of assembly.
