California-based distributor RFMW Ltd. announced it will continue its distribution relationship with Ampleon following the formation of the manufacturer’s global business operations. Ampleon is the former RF power Business Unit of NXP Semiconductors. NXP sold the unit as a condition of its merger with Freescale Semiconductor.
RFMW will continue its franchise agreement for the entire RF Power business activity, including sales and support of the complete line-up of Ampleon’s LDMOS and GaN RF Power products, the company said.
Ampleon’s CEO Reinier Beltman pointed to the firm’s focus on traditional RF solutions as well as on new RF energy markets such as solid state cooking and plasma lighting.
“RF Energy applications will see us establishing new partnerships and introduce new products as we embrace these exciting developments across the value chain,” Beltman said. “We will be working closely with customers to help them adopt RF Energy technology into their designs.”
“As an RF & Microwave specialist, our years of experience and long relationship with NXP Semiconductor’s RF Power products offer our sales team unique insights into customer designs for current and future products,” said Joel Levine, president and CEO of RFMW. “As an independent company, Ampleon has the flexibility to develop new solutions based on customer feedback and awareness of new markets. Together, RFMW and Ampleon are well positioned to support both large and small customers as we move forward.”
