TEMPE, ARIZONA - Lansdale Semiconductor, Inc. president, R. Dale Lillard, announced the company's acquisition of the MC1350 Intermediate Frequency (IF) and MC1490 Radio Frequency (RF) Amplifier chip products from Motorola Semiconductor Products Sector in Phoenix. Under the terms of the acquisition contract agreement, Lansdale becomes the aftermarket supplier of the MC1350 and MC1490 commercial integrated circuits (IC). According to Lillard, "Motorola has transferred all manufacturing, licensing, and world-wide marketing rights to Lansdale".
The MC1350 is a monolithic IC featuring wide-range Automatic Gain Control (AGC) for use as an IF amplifier in radio and TV application with an operating temperature range from 0 to +75 degrees C. Also a monolithic IC, the MC1490 is a wideband IC featuring wide-range AGC for use in RF/IF audio amplifiers over the -40 to +85 C degree operating temperature range. These standard commercial IC devices are only available in standard plastic packaging. With a minimum order of 500 units, they are priced at $2.00 each. Larger quantity discount pricing is available on an individual order basis.
The MC1350 and MC1490 both meet Motorola's original design specifications and high performance standards. Lansdale is an ISO9002 and QML38535 manufacturer.
"Lansdale is continuing its product acquisition program, in conjunction with the original IC manufacturers like Motorola, to meet market needs caused by the increasing rates of IC obsolescence and to assure a continuous electronic component supply to the commercial, military and telecommunications industries", stated Lillard.
Based in Tempe, Ariz., Lansdale is an industry pioneer and continues to be a leading supplier in the semiconductor aftermarket. The company manufactures, stocks, and markets a large selection of IC product lines originally designed and produced by AMD, Fairchild, Harris, Intel, Motorola, Philips, and Raytheon.
