ON Semiconductor has introduced a new family of tunable RF components (TRFC) that address the design challenges faced by engineers developing the latest generation smartphones. The new devices optimally combine tuning range, RF quality factor (Q) and frequency operation, providing a superior solution to existing fixed approaches.
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. announced from Mobile World Congress in Barcelona that the company is collaborating with Intel on the latest generation of its popular DuNE™ tuning technology offering for Intel’s LTE platform reference design.
Skyworks Solutions Inc., an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, is ramping several antenna tuning products with leading smartphone manufacturers. Skyworks’ devices are meeting the market demand for tunable antennas which dramatically improve performance by increasing data throughput, reducing dropped calls and minimizing the antenna footprint needed for today’s multiband LTE smartphones.
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., a fabless provider of high-performance radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs), announced from Mobile World Congress in Barcelona it has expanded its DuNE™ Digitally Tunable Capacitor (DTC) product line with six second-generation devices for antenna tuning in 4G LTE smartphones.
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. (Peregrine), a fabless provider of high-performance radio-frequency (RF) integrated circuits (ICs), announced from booth # 2009 at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS2012) in Montreal, two new Digitally Tunable Capacitors (DTCs) — the PE64101 and PE64102 (PE64101/2) DTCs. The 5-bit, 32-state DTCs, designed using Peregrine’s DuNE™ tuning technology, enable wide-band tunable networks and minimize mismatch losses, improve system efficiency, and reduce radio complexity for cost-sensitive applications, such as RFID, phase shifters, and wireless communications, among others.
Meeting the demand for direct digital synthesis (DDS) technology that meets the needs of wireless applications requiring fast hopping and/or sweeping, Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal-processing applications, announced that it has more than tripled the clock speed of previously available DDS integrated circuits (ICs).
