) recently unveiled a 750 watt (W) RF transistor named
MDSGN-750ELMV. The transistor is designed to provide highest
power performance in air traffic control and accident avoidance
equipment. The device can be used in applications such as
secondary surveillance radar, which, in turn, is used to identify
aircrafts within a range of about 200 miles from base.
A transistor is a semiconductor device used for the amplification
and switching of electronic signals. It is the principal building
block of modern electronic devices and is widely used in radios,
calculators and computers.
The MDSGN-750ELMV is equipped to handle challenging Mode-S
Extended Length Messaging (ELM) conditions. ELM helps to
communicate weather and air traffic related information to
aircrafts within a particular region. The new RF device can also
be used in collision avoidance systems, IFF systems and
commercial air-to-air traffic alerts.
