Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. Introduces UltraCMOS PE42424 High-Isolation SPDT Switch Optimized for 802.11ac Carrier and Enterprise Wi-Fi Access Points

Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. introduced the UltraCMOS(R) PE42424 high-isolation, SPDT switch optimized for 802.11ac carrier and enterprise Wi-Fi access points. Successor to last year's groundbreaking PE42423, the upgraded switch is 75% smaller and features a 60% increase in power handling and a 350% faster switching speed. The PE42424 is ideally suited for transmit/receive switching applications for outdoor Wi-Fi access points that require high power handling and rugged, high-temperature performance. Peregrine's RF switch enables these WLAN products to realize the promise of 802.11ac, which is offering high data throughput in increasingly dense, bring-your-own-device (BYOD) environments. Carriers have been experiencing an exponential increase in mobile data traffic. To provide consistent quality of service, they are offloading this traffic to Wi-Fi networks, which are increasingly integrating 802.11ac into their small cells. Indoor units (IDUs) were the first Wi-Fi access points to adopt the 802.11ac standard, and Peregrine's inaugural Wi-Fi switch, the PE42423, was optimized for high performance within those devices. Today, outdoor unit (ODU) Wi-Fi access points are quickly adopting the 802.11ac standard, and their performance and environmental requirements are much more intensive. Peregrine developed the PE42424 to meet these specific 802.11ac-based ODU access point needs: High power handling of 8W to accommodate the higher transmit power of the access-point radios; Fast switching speed of 145 ns to enable higher throughput and data rates in high-density, BYOD environments; High port-to-port isolation to reduce signal leakage between transmit and receive paths; Temperature support up to 105 degrees Celsius to withstand harsh environments and to reduce thermal constraints; and Small 1.5x1.5 mm footprint to reduce board area and offer engineers more design options for other functions. Peregrine's PE42424 supports the latest carrier-grade, Wi-Fi device demands with additional features, including: High linearity of 61 dBm IIP3 over the entire power-supply range; this capability enables system designs with lower supply rails and prevents linearity degradation through maximum power levels; High ESD rating of 2,500V (on RF pins) that increases product reliability and eases manufacturing flow; Smaller switch footprint that eliminates the need for external components, such as DC blocking capacitors; and Control logic support for 1.8V and 3.3V and wide power supply range from2.3V to 5.5V that provides design flexibility. Features, Packaging, Pricing and Availability: Peregrine's PE42424 is a Single-Pole Double Throw (SPDT) RF switch featuring fast switching time (145 ns with a 125 kHz switching rate) and exceptional isolation (48 dB at 2.4 GHz and 35 dB at 6 GHz). The 50-ohm absorptive switch supports +1.8V standard logic control and provides stable RF performance over a power supply range between 2.3V and 5.5V. Samples, evaluation kits and volume-production parts are available now. Offered a RoHS compliant, 6-lead, 1.5x1.5 mm QFN package, the PE42424 is $0.49 each for 10K-quantity orders and $0.44 for 25K-quantity orders.

Peregrine Semiconductor Upgrades High-Isolation, Multi-Throw Switches

Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. introduced the UltraCMOS(R) PE42442 and the PE42452 high-isolation, multi-throw switches. Successors to the popular PE42451, these SP4T and SP5T switches include several additional features that support the latest wireless infrastructure demands, including an extended temperature range to 105-degrees Celsius and control logic support of 1.8V and 3V. With the rapid expansion of LTE and soon LTE-A, these high-isolation switches provide a reliable solution for wireless infrastructure applications and enable LTE-infrastructure designs to maximize spectral efficiency and data throughput. Peregrine's new UltraCMOS(R) high-isolation switches, the PE42442 and the PE42452, address emerging requirements in wireless infrastructure equipment. Building on the foundation of the PE42451, the PE42442 and PE42452 include several new features. The temperature support was increased to 105-degrees Celsius for use in rugged conditions, a 1.8V logic control was included to enable lower power consumption and a wider power supply range of 2.3V to 5.5V was employed for maximum design flexibility. Additionally, the insertion loss, isolation and ESD protection on the switch were enhanced. Features, Packaging, Pricing and Availability. Covering a frequency range of 450 MHz to 4 GHz, the PE42442 and PE42452 deliver exceptional isolation, linearity invariance over supply, flexible control and unparalleled ESD protection. The PE42442, a SP4T RF switch, is a four-throw version of the PE42452 and offers a 52 dB port-to-port isolation at 2.7 GHz and 61 dB at 900 MHz. The PE42452, a SP5T RF switch, is a pin-compatible upgraded version of the PE42451 and delivers 52 dB isolation at 2.7 GHz and 61 dB at 900 MHz. The 50-ohm absorptive switches have high linearity up to 4 GHz with a more than 55 dBm IIP3. These high-isolation switches deliver ESD protection of 4 kV HBM on all RF pins, enabling high manufacturing reliability.
