Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new RF switch from Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. The PE42430 switch was developed on Peregrine's patented UltraCMOS® technology and combines low insertion loss with high linearity, high isolation, and small package size, making it well suited for WLAN and Bluetooth® applications in the 2.4 GHz band, as well as general broadband switching applications. An on-chip CMOS decode logic facilitates a three-pin CMOS control interface, and, because VDD is derived from switch-control inputs, there is no need for a VDD pin.

Key features of the PE42430 include:

  • HaRP™technology-enhanced UltraCMOS device
  • Low insertion loss: Typical 0.45 dB @ 1 GHz; Typical 0.55 dB @ 2.5 GHz
  • Isolation: 40 dB @ 1 GHz
  • IIP3: Typical +66 dBm
  • P0.1dB Compression: Typical +30 dBm
  • Excellent ESD tolerance: 4500V HBM and 250V MM on all ports
  • No external VDD required
  • Package type: 8-lead 1.5 x 1.5 mm DFN

Common configurations are in stock and available for immediate delivery. To find more information, or to purchase the device today on the Richardson RFPD website, please visit the PE42430 webpage.
