    That's awesome too. $120 in small quantity.

    Not for some of us ;-)

    The price depends on the volume bought.

    120 volts. 90 watts. 25 amps. 8 mhos. 200 C. All I need to know now
    are the capacitances.

    I want to use it in a wideband amp, 1-250 MHz maybe. It's input
    matched for 3.5 GHz, so I figure the matching will be invisible at 250
    MHz, practically DC. At 2.5 Ghz it should be partially matched, but
    probably tunable. The drain is unmatched, fine with me.

    As soon as I blow one up, I'll open the can and see what's inside.

    Well, they have no devices yet from what I was told. Maybe in a
    year or so.
  9. Those things really leak a lot- several watts could be lost to leakage
    in the 'off' condition.
    Might make a nice audiophile class-A amplifier.

    Actually, that RF centric device would be quite expensive to
    incorporate into an audio amp, regardless of whether it would work or
    not. There a far far cheaper devices that are as good as they need to
    be for such a design.
  11. Seems kind of open-ended. Surely if these guys can hear a staggering
    difference between cheap and expensive AC line sockets, response well
    into the hundreds of MHz may not be overkill.

    Make that "phase linearity" any you'll sell more.

    I was talking about price, not working capacity.
    Gold cans likely are though.

    The rep dropped off an eval board here, with a gadget on it. He claims
    we can get parts, but these exotic semiconductors do always seem to be
    six months off. They've added a "P" in the front of the part number,
    on the pdf datasheet, and he claims that means "production." We'll

    When/if we can get them, they will be a pretty radical change to the
    way people design wideband RF power amps.

    Like the old germanium transistor amps with just a cap into the
    base... self biasing! But a few watts of leakage won't be lethal for a
    200 watt class AB push-pull amp, probably less than the normal
    quiescent power.

    Still cheaper than a 300B.
