NXP is excited to announce our MMRF5018HS wideband 125 W CW GaN on SiC RF Power Transistor. The MMRF5018HS is housed in a low
Rth NI-400HS air cavity ceramic package. With its high gain and high ruggedness, the MMRF5018HS is ideally suited for CW, pulse
and wideband RF applications.
Industry Leading Wideband CW Performance at High Power
In the defense industry, communication is not just
necessary it’s a lifeline. NXP’s RF transistors are proven rugged and reliable in the harshest of environments. The MMRF5018HS
offers more than reliability – it is a true one-stop solution for multiband communication with best-in-class wideband
capabilities, high gain and drain efficiency.

The MMRF5018HS multi-octave wideband performance is optimized for applications operating at 1-2700 MHz. When operating at such
wide-bandwidths at high power, thermals become a major factor in how to get the heat out. NXP is continuing to improve our
wideband GaN portfolio, with this low thermal resistance of 1.21° C/W thermal resistance (FEA computed) channel to case thermal
resistance at 90°C and 109W dissipated. From our historic MMRF5014HS 100W to our MMRF5017HS, our thermal resistance has improved
by more than 18% allowing more watts to be dissipated safely while not compromising MTTF.
Like the lineup example below, NXP recently expanded its wideband portfolio by offering a new 2-stage lineup reference circuit
A5G35S004N(driver)+A3G26D055N(final). With 10 W CW wideband performance, our circuit operates from 400-2700 MHz for wideband
communications and other industrial applications.
