peregrine semiconductor corp (PSMI) Key Developments

Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. Introduces UltraCMOS(R) PE42722

Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. announced the UltraCMOS(R) PE42722, a high-linearity RF switch that enables a dual upstream/downstream band architecture in cable customer premises equipment (CPE) devices. By using a dual-band architecture, multi-service operators (MSOs) have the flexibility to offer their customers new and expanded services while CPEs can comply with the new DOCSIS 3.1 cable industry standard. MSOs also benefit from the switch supporting both DOCSIS 3.0 and 3.1, allowing for a simple and cost-effective transition to DOCSIS 3.1. CPE devices, such as set-top boxes, cable modems and home gateways, have previously supported only one upstream and downstream band at a time. Until now, no switch has met the linearity requirements necessary to support a dual-band architecture. When upgrading to a different high-speed service plan, the customer currently is faced with the inconvenience of physically changing the CPE device to get the hardware necessary to support the higher upstream and downstream band requirements. The introduction of the PE42722 high-linearity switch marks the first time that dual upstream/downstream bands can reside in the same CPE device. Once CPE devices are equipped with the PE42722 switch, the exchanging of hardware will no longer be necessary. An additional benefit of the PE42722 high-linearity switch is its compliance with the DOCSIS 3.0 and 3.1 cable standards. In order to meet rise in data consumption, the industry announced the DOCSIS 3.1 standard in Oct. 2013. These new DOCSIS 3.1 requirements put enormous pressure on the entire cable industry eco system, from CPE devices to the infrastructure. To ease the infrastructure transition to the higher speeds and eliminate the need to replace the CPE, these devices must incorporate the flexibility to accommodate multiple upstream/downstream frequency band definitions. To create a dual-band architecture, a switch must be placed directly at the cable modem (CM) connector before the filters and needs to comply with the stringent DOCSIS 3.1 CM spurious emissions requirements of -50 dBmV. Such a low spurious level requires the switch harmonic performance to be better than -115 dBc. The PE42722 is the only RF switch available that can achieve these high harmonic requirements. Covering a frequency range of 5-1,794 MHz, the PE42722 readily supports an average input power greater than 65 dBmV. The switch's low insertion loss (0.3 dB at 1218 MHz) preserves noise figure and receiver sensitivity and achieves superior signal quality, along with providing high isolation of 40 dB at 612 MHz. The PE42722 also features a low current consumption of 130 uA, standard +1.8V and +3.3V logic support, a wide voltage supply range from 2.3 to 5.5V, and 1.5 kV ESD protection on all pins. Offered in a 32-lead 5 mm x 5 mm QFN package, volume-production parts, samples and evaluation kits are available now. For 10K-quantity orders, each PE42722 switch is $3.38.

Peregrine Semiconductor Expands Integrated Product Portfolio into Both Ends of the Frequency Spectrum

Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. announced the expansion of its integrated product portfolio into DC and X-band frequencies. Peregrine introduced two new integrated products--a True DC switch and an X-band core chip. Built on Peregrine's UltraCMOS(R) technology, both products integrate RF, digital and analog components onto a single chip. While integration has traditionally offered high-volume markets the benefit of lower cost, Peregrine uses intelligent integration to offer performance advantages in high-performance markets. Peregrine's integrated products offer benefits such as configurability, flexibility, reliability, repeatability, ease-of-use, a reduced form factor and enhanced performance. At the lower end of the frequency spectrum, Peregrine sets a new standard with the industry's first and only RF integrated switch to achieve true DC capability. With a wide frequency range of 0 Hz to 8000 MHz, the UltraCMOS True DC switch (PE42020) effectively operates in a previously unobtainable portion of the frequency spectrum. This frequency expansion is paramount to markets that rely on accuracy and precision, such as test and measurement. The True DC SPDT switch features high power handling, 30 dBm at 0 Hz and 36 dBm at 8 GHz, and maintains excellent RF performance and linearity from DC through 8000 MHz. Moreover, it can switch DC and AC peak voltages in the range of +10V to -10V at currents of up to 80 mA, a first for this kind of product. Another unique advantage of the True DC switch is efficient switching time. While low-frequency operation typically requires a slow switching time, the True DC switch uses advanced circuitry to remove this dependence, resulting in a 10 microsecond switching time, and a 15 microsecond settling time which is critical for test-and-measurement applications. The PE42020 features high-linearity (IIP3) performance of 63 dBm, and high port-to-port isolation of 37 dB @ 6 GHz. It supports standard +1.8V and +3.3V control logic and operates over a temperature range of -40 to +85 degrees centigrade. The True DC switch also supports 1000V HBM ESD tolerance and is supplied in a compact 20-lead 4x4 mm QFN plastic package. Sampling now and shipping in early 2015, the pioneering True DC switch (PE42020) is poised to replace problematic mechanical relays and MEMS switches in the test-and-measurement market. Sampling in early 2015, this X-band core chip delivers the fine resolution and degree of control that is critical for radar applications. The chip offers a maximum power handling of +18 dBm from 9-10.1 GHz and covers 31.75 dB attenuation range in 0.25 dB steps. The phase shifter offers 358 degrees of phase range with a resolution of 7 degrees. It maintains high attenuation and phase accuracy over frequency and temperature and exhibits low power consumption.
