Product Brief
1
Product Brief
The BFP740FESD is a very low noise wideband NPN bipolar RF transistor. The device is based on Infineon’s
reliable high volume silicon germanium carbon (SiGe:C) heterojunction bipolar technology. The collector design
supports voltages up to VCEO = 4.2 V and currents up to IC = 45 mA. The device is especially suited for mobile
applications in which low power consumption is a key requirement. The typical transition frequency is
approximately 47 GHz, hence the device offers high power gain at frequencies up to 12 GHz in amplifier
applications. The transistor is fitted with internal protection circuits, which enhance the robustness against
electrostatic discharge (ESD) and high levels of RF input power. The device is housed in a thin small flat plastic
package with visible leads.

Low VCBO due to integrated protection circuits
VCES is identical to VCEO due to integrated protection circuits.
Sustainable reverse bias current is high due to integrated protection circuits.
RF input power is high due to integrated protection circuits.
ESD robustness is high due to integrated protection circuits.
TS is the soldering point temperature. TS is measured on the emitter lead at the soldering point of the pcb.
Attention: Stresses above the max. values listed here may cause permanent damage to the device.
Exposure to absolute maximum rating conditions for extended periods may affect device
reliability. Maximum ratings are absolute ratings; exceeding only one of these values may
cause irreversible damage to the integrated circuit.

Notes
1. Gms = IS21 / S12I for k < 1; Gma = IS21 / S12I(k-(k2-1)1/2) for k > 1
2. In order to get the NFmin values stated in this chapter the test fixture losses have been subtracted from all
measured results.
3. OIP3 value depends on termination of all intermodulation frequency components. Termination used for this
measurement is 50 Ω from 0.2 MHz to 12 GHz.

Simulation Data
For the SPICE Gummel Poon (GP) model as well as for the S-parameters (including noise parameters) please
refer to our internet website: www.infineon.com/rf.models. Please consult our website and download the latest
versions before actually starting your design.
You find the BFP740FESD SPICE GP model in the internet in MWO- and ADS-format, which you can import into
these circuit simulation tools very quickly and conveniently. The model already contains the package parasitics
and is ready to use for DC- and high frequency simulations. The terminals of the model circuit correspond to the
pin configuration of the device.
The model parameters have been extracted and verified up to 10 GHz using typical devices. The BFP740FESD
SPICE GP model reflects the typical DC- and RF-performance within the limitations which are given by the SPICE
GP model itself. Besides the DC characteristics all S-parameters in magnitude and phase, as well as noise figure
(including optimum source impedance, equivalent noise resistance and flicker noise) and intermodulation have
been extracted.
