Designers need to go from design to production as quickly as possible. For help in achieving this goal, they can rely on the DAK-3A Design Accelerator Kit from the Semiconductor Division of Mitsubishi. This kit is the third in a series of advanced Design Accelerator Kits featuring DataSurveyor technology. It comes with a toolset for RF designers, which includes reference designs, application notes, fixtures, and evaluation samples. The DAK-3A targets VHF and UHF power-amplifier (PA) applications. It is available for two silicon radio-frequency, unmatched power transistors: the RD06HVF1 (6 W) and RD15HVF1 (15 W).
The DAK-3A kit is fully interactive. Designers can therefore investigate the performance of devices either independently or across a range of user-selectable RF drive, bias, and temperature conditions. It also provides for advanced math-processing and data-export functions. The data presented by DataSurveyor is based on measurements of thousands of data points. It is "real-world" measurement data for the devices in the supplied reference design.
All three tools in the Design Accelerator Kit series are available with DataSurveyor technology. DAK-1 features reference designs and a toolset for leadless, surface-mount, Gallium-Arsenide (GaAs) FETs for microwave PAs. DAK-2 features a reference toolset for a line of Silicon (Si) hybrid RF, 7-W power-amplifier modules that cover VHF and UHF frequencies.
