Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., founder of RF SOI (silicon on insulator) and pioneer of advanced RF solutions, announces that it has been awarded qualified manufacturers list (QML) certification, class Q (military) and V (space). After a thorough evaluation, Peregrine demonstrated to the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Land and Maritime that it fully complies with MIL-PRF-38535, the performance specification used by the Department of Defense for monolithic integrated circuits that operate in severe environments.
FIME's EMV(R) RF test tool, which incorporates Keysight Technologies' Contactless Test System, is the first to achieve EMVCo qualification to perform Level 1 PCD analogue testing on contactless terminals. The tool confirms that the communication between the terminal and a contactless card, or near field communication (NFC)-enabled smartphone, is in line with EMVCo's EMV specification 2.3 requirements. Contactless terminal and mobile point of sale (mPOS) manufacturers can use the tool to speed up their EMV Level 1 analogue approval process.
