BFR106 NPN 5GHz Transistor


COMING SOON! A breakout PCB for the BFR106 NPN 5GHz transistor. It’s proven to be useful as a “hotter” replacement for more-commonly used devices, especially above 14MHz. With an transition frequency (“fT,” the frequency when gain declines to unity, i.e., no gain at all) at 5GHz, there’s a lot more gain available for the upper-HF bands (and for VHF/UHF use) than the usual “popcorn” parts. Though recommended by respected members of the Ham community for some time, it’s only available as a surface-mount component. Soon it will be easy to use in your builds with this little breakout board.
