Peregrine Awarded QML Certification
RF silicon on insulator (SOI) company Peregrine Semiconductor has been certified as a Qualified Manufacturers List (QML) supplier, class Q (military) and V (space).
After a thorough evaluation, Peregrine demonstrated to the US Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Land and Maritime that it fully complies with MIL-PRF-38535, the performance specification used by the US Department of Defense for monolithic integrated circuits that operate in severe environments.
"This is a giant step forward for Peregrine's high reliability products and demonstrates our continued commitment to serving the aerospace and defense market - an industry we have served for over 15 years," says Duncan Pilgrim, vice president and general manager of Peregrine Semiconductor's high performance analogue business unit.
He added: "As we celebrate this QML certification, we're actively taking the next steps to qualify and release Peregrine's space and military product portfolio as standard microcircuit drawings."
Peregrine offers many high reliability products for the aerospace and defense industry including RF switches, digital step attenuators (DSAs), prescalers, phase-locked loops (PLLs) and DC-DC converters, based on Peregrine's own technologies. Built on Peregrine's UltraCMOS technology on a sapphire substrate, these high reliability products offer proven RF performance and unique integration capabilities.
