What is an RF Transistor?

An RF Transistor, or radio frequency transistor, is a semiconductor device which is used in order to amplify and switch electronic signals and power. RF transistors contain at least three terminals for connection to an external circuit. A current or voltage applied to one pair of the RF transistor terminals changes the current flowing through another pair of terminals. A transistor can use a small signal applied between one pair of its terminals in order to control a much larger signal at another pair of terminals. This is called gain. A transistor has the ability to control its output in proportion to its input signal and therefore act as an amplifier. Also, a transistor can be used in order to turn current on or off in a circuit as an electrically controlled switch.

Types of RF Transistors

There are several different kinds of RF transistors at Future Electronics. We stock many of the most common types categorized by several parameters including frequency range, CE voltage, polarity, gain, output power, channel type, D-S breakdown voltage and packaging type. Our parametric filters will allow you to refine your search results according to the required specifications.

RF Transistors from Future Electronics

Future Electronics has a wide range of RF Transistors from several manufacturers. Once you decide if you need a Bipolar RF Transistor, NPN RF Transistor, Phemt RF Transistor, PNP RF Transistor or RF FET Transistor, you will be able to choose from their technical attributes and your search results will be narrowed to match your specific RF transistor application needs. You will then be able to find the right RF transistor for your radio frequency power transistors or microwave transistors for your electronics.

We deal with several manufacturers such as Avago Technologies, California Eastern Lab, Fairchild, Freescale Semiconductors, NXP and STMicroelectronics, among others. You can easily refine your RF transistor product search results by clicking your preferred RF transistor brand from the list of manufacturers below.

Applications for RF Transistors:

RF transistors can be found in several modern electronics including mobile radio and telecommunication applications, FM/TV broadcast, avionics, radar and defense communications as well as industrial, scientific, medical and broadcast applications.

Choosing the Right RF Transistor:

With the parametric search, when looking for the right RF transistor, you can filter the results by the required category. We carry the following categories of RF Transistors:

  • Bipolar RF Transistor
  • NPN RF Transistor
  • Phemt RF Transistor
  • PNP RF Transistor
  • RF FET Transistor

Once you choose the RF transistor category, you can narrow them down by various attributes: by frequency range, polarity, gain, output power and packaging type to name a few. You will be able to find the right RF transistor for your microwave transistors or radio frequency power transistors for your electronics using these filters.

RF Transistors in Production Ready Packaging or R&D Quantities

If the quantity of RF transistors you require is less than a full reel, we offer customers several of our RF transistor devices in tray, tube or individual quantities that will help you avoid unneeded surplus.

Future Electronics also offers clients a unique bonded inventory program designed in order to eliminate potential problems that can arise from an unpredictable supply of products that could contain raw metals and products with erratic or long lead times. Talk with your nearest Future Electronics branch and find out more on how you and your company can avoid possible shortages.
