“With a broadband product operating DC to 8500 MHz, our customers can greatly reduce qualification cost by eliminating the need to qualify additional devices in the system,” stated Dale Robinette, director of product marketing. “High isolation, low insertion loss, high frequency, ultra-low power and untouchable IP3 translate into unparalleled system-level performance,” he added.
The PE95420, an absorptive, non-reflective switch, utilizes Peregrine’s innovative HaRP™ design methodology which enables exceptional RF performance to meet system-level requirements:
PE95420 UltraCMOS SPDT
The new SPDT incorporates a single-pin 3.3 V CMOS logic control which dramatically lowers the number of control lines, reducing the signal routing and potential failures in a system.
The PE95420 will be offered in the 7-lead hermetic surface-mount CSOIC and in die form. Engineering samples are expected to be available in February 2009. Pricing and lead-time are available by contacting Peregrine.
About UltraCMOS™ Technology For Space
UltraCMOS™ mixed-signal process technology is a proprietary, patented variation of silicon-on insulator (SOI) technology on a sapphire substrate providing with high yields and competitive costs. It combines the RF, mixed-signal, and digital capabilities of any other CMOS process, yet is inherently rad-hard making it an ideal process for demanding space applications. Recent advancements on UltraCMOS have enabled significant new product performance in the rad-hard portfolio. These significant performance advantages exist over competing processes such as GaAs, SiGe, BiCMOS and bulk silicon CMOS in applications where RF performance, ultra-low power, reduced size and integration are paramount.
