RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

VDMOS_LDMOS_parameters[T] - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at phpBB would release a version with integrated sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums, but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

I need the papers about parameters the amplifiers with transistors VDMOS, LDMOS versus temperature.

Is bias control necessarily in amplifier with LDMOS ??
How is the large influence of temperature on parameters in amplifiers with transistors LDMOS ??

thanks for information

Hello again jarys,

Welcome to the magnificent world of RF Power Amplifiers!

LDMOS transistors are sensitive to temperature (As any other active device). When the temperature increases the Drain current Ids increases too and the output power level increases with it. So you should provide a negative feedback in order to reduce the drain current over temperature. This is done by using a thermistor in the Gate circuit. The thermistor is part of a voltage divider which reduces the Vgs voltage and by that reduces the Drain current.

Here is a link to a Freescale (Formerly motorola) which uses this scheme:

Should you need more information, please post and I will be keen to help you!
