Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the immediate availability of its Small Cell (Femto, Micro, Pico) New Product Selector Guide. The October 2012 Small Cell Selector Guide includes the latest semiconductors, passive devices, and frequency control devices for this dynamic application.
A new forecast predicts dramatic growth in the semiconductor market supporting small cells, from $90 million in 2012 to more than $650 million in 2017. In particular, semiconductors supporting carrier-grade small cells (excluding consumer and enterprise femtocells) will ramp from practically zero revenue in 2012 to a staggering $500 million in 2017.
Soitec (Euronext Paris), a world leader in generating and manufacturing revolutionary semiconductor materials for the electronics and energy industries, announced it has more than doubled production of bonded silicon-on-sapphire (BSOS) substrates to meet increased demand from its strategic partner, Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: PSMI). Peregrine Semiconductor, a fabless provider of high-performance radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs), has increased peak-production capability of its latest-generation STeP5 UltraCMOS® technology-based RF switches to more than two million units a day, to support design wins in the Radio Frequency Front Ends (RFFEs) of today’s most advanced 4G smart phones, and other wirelesscommunication applications.
ON Semiconductor, a premier supplier of high performance silicon solutions for energy efficient electronics, has introduced a new series of active spread spectrum clock generator integrated circuits (ICs) that manage electromagnetic interference (EMI) and Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) at the clock source, delivering system-wide EMI reduction of all clock dependent signals.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces its attendance and participation at the 2012 Microwave Workshops & Exhibition (MWE). More than 400 microwave-related companies from around the world are scheduled to exhibit this year at MWE, which also features technical seminars and workshops.
MagnaChip Semiconductor Corp. ("MagnaChip Semiconductor"), a Korea-based designer and manufacturer of analog and mixed-signal semiconductor products, and Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., a fabless provider of high-performance radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs), today announced that MagnaChip has expanded production of Peregrine Semiconductor's STeP5 UltraCMOS® technology-based RFIC product line, including the most recent DuNE™ Digitally Tunable Capacitors (DTCs) for RF impedance tuning.
