Lansdale and Freescale Partner to Manufacture Low Power VCO Buffer IC
PHOENIX, AZ - Lansdale Semiconductor, Inc. president, R. Dale Lillard, announced today the continued availability of the ML12149 wireless integrated circuit (IC) originally designed and manufactured by Freescale Semiconductor, Inc.  Lansdale  has single-source rights to both globally market and continue to manufacture Freescale’s  ML12149, a Low Power Voltage Controlled Oscillator Buffer (VCO) critical in supporting a variety of transceiver applications.  It is capable of high frequency signal generation up to 1.3 Ghz.  An external tank circuit is used to determine the desired frequency of operation and can be used with an emitter PLL IC such as the ML12210, a 1.1 Ghz Frequency Synthesizer to form a complete PLL sub-system.  Typical current consumption of 15 Ma at 3.0 V makes it attractive for battery operated handheld systems.  The device has three high frequency outputs which make it attractive for transceiver applications which require a transmit and receive local oscillator (LO) signal as well as a lower amplitude signal to drive the prescaler input of the frequency synthesizer.  The ML12149 is available in a surface mount SO-8 package.

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 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.
