Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., founder of RF SOI (silicon on insulator) and pioneer of advanced RF solutions, rolled out its new line of UltraCMOS RF power limiters, as well as PE45140 and PE45450 which are slated for release in May.
Peregrine’s power limiters represent the industry’s first turnkey, monolithic solutions to be able to provide an alternative to discrete, PIN-diode limiters based on gallium arsenide (GaAs). UltraCMOS power limiters deliver simple, repeatable and reliable protection ideal for test-and-measurement, followed by land-mobile-radio (LMR), wireless-infrastructure, military and for that matter, radar systems.
“Peregrine makes best-in-class RF products, and we are pleased to extend that heritage into the new category of power limiters announced at EDI CON today,” states Duncan Pilgrim, director of marketing at Peregrine. Supplementing that- “Our customers continuously find that incumbent GaAs-based RF solutions do not rise to the challenge of new complexity in the market, and they are investing in Peregrine’s SOI technology as fast as we can develop new options like this.”
