Peregrine Revamps SOI Mixer Range

High linearity mixer has integrated local oscillator buffer with bypass mode

RF SOI (silicon on insulator) company Peregrine Semiconductor has announced the UltraCMOS PE4152, a high linearity mixer with integrated local oscillator (LO) buffer with bypass mode. The launch of the PE4152 kicks off Peregrine's initiative to revamp its mixer portfolio and is the first of many Peregrine will release this year.

Successor to the PE4150, this quad MOSFET mixer is said to offer RF engineers more design flexibility while delivering exceptional linearity, high isolation and low conversion loss. The PE4152 is suitable for land-mobile-radio (LMR), tactical radio and cellular infrastructure applications.

"The PE4152 mixer gives RF engineers more flexibility in their designs," says Kinana Hussain, director of marketing at Peregrine Semiconductor. "If the customer chooses to bypass the integrated LO buffer, they can tap into the mixer core's raw performance. This design flexibility provides a one-chip solution to customers who previously would have had to use two separate designs to achieve optimum performance."

The PE4152 mixer operates from 100 to 1000 MHz (RF) and 200 to 900 MHz (LO). When using the LO buffer, linearity is 25 dBm IIP3 and isolation is 30/30 dB LO-RF/IF. In LO bypass mode, linearity is 24 dBm IIP3, and isolation is 60/58 dB LO-RF/IF. Conversion loss is less than 6.6 dB in either LO mode. 



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.
