Freescale and Lansdale Partner to Manufacture Monolithic RF/IF and IF Amplifiers

Phoenix, Ariz. -- Lansdale Semiconductor, Inc. president, R. Dale Lillard, announced today the continued availability of the ML1350 and ML1490 Integrated circuits(ICs) originally designed and built by Motorola/Freescale Semiconductor, Inc.  Lansdale has the single-source rights to both globally market and continue to manufacture Motorola’s line of RF/IF and IF Amplifier Circuits.  The ML1490 featuring wide-range AGC (Automatic Gain Control) for use in RF/IF (Radio Frequency/Intermediate Frequency) and Audio Amplifiers.  The ML1350 is a Monolithic IF Amplifier featuring wide range AGC applications for use as linear IF amplifier in AM radio, shortwave , high-definition television (TV), Global Positioning System(GPS) and instrumentation.   AGC range for both circuits:  60dB Min. DC to 60 MHz.  Data sheets are available in print and online for both ICs

These circuits continue to support present customer's existing wireless programs and can also be used for the newest designs and applications.

Lansdale’s exclusive product life cycle management system is a quality control system that guarantees form, fit, and function equal to the original manufacturer’s design specifications.  The Lansdale model has become increasingly important as the growth of the counterfeit industry has increased the problem of maintaining a reliable source of components for long-life systems.  “With counterfeit electronic components becoming more of a global industry nightmare, Lansdale’s 50 plus years of product life cycle management, support and manufacturing using only the OEM’s original tooling has become even more critical in today’s market” stated Lillard.  This assures a continuous source of high performance IC’s to the worldwide electronics market.
