Peregrine Wins 2016 ECN Award

UltraCMOS RF switch named a market disruptor

RF SOI (silicon on insulator) company Peregrine Semiconductor has announced that its UltraCMOS PE42723 high linearity RF switch has won an ECN IMPACT Award in the 'market disruptor' category.

In addition, the PE42723 switch was also named a finalist in the 'microwaves & RF' category, and the PE29100 GaN FET driver was recognised as a finalist in the 'power sources & conditioning devices' category.

The ECN IMPACT Awards recognise the products and services that have the greatest impact on the electronic components industry. The market disruptor category highlights a product that forever changed the electronic engineering industry or a particular vertical within the industry.

The PE42723 is an RF switch that reportedly has the highest linearity specifications on the market today. An upgraded version of the successful PE42722, this new RF switch offers enhanced performance in a smaller package. Like its predecessor, the PE42723 exceeds the linearity requirements of the DOCSIS 3.1 cable industry standard and enables adual upstream/downstream band architecture in the next generation cable customer premises equipment (CPE) devices.

The PE29100 is believed to be the world's fastest GaN FET driver. Built on Peregrine's UltraCMOS technology, the device is designed to drive the gates of a high-side and a low-side GaN FET in a switching configuration. It is said to deliver the industry's fastest switching speeds, shortest propagation delays and lowest rise and fall times to AC-DC converters, DC-DC converters, class D audio amplifiers and wireless-charging applications.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
