RFMW, Ltd. announces design and sales support forPeregrine Semiconductors’ 10 MHz to 8 GHz SP4T switch. The PE42441 combines low insertion loss of 1 dB with high isolation of 39 dB (measured at 6 GHz). Internal 50 Ω terminations give this absorptive switch a P0.1 dB compression point of 31 dB, a significant competitive advantage for target applications in wireless infrastructure and wireless connectivity.
Peregrine’s PE42441 high isolation characteristics reduce the need for additional components and the Peregrine UltraCMOS process eliminates the need for DC blocking capacitors thereby reducing overall BOM costs. Available in a 5x5mm QFN, the PE42441 uses 1.8 or 3 V control voltages and runs off a 3 V supply.
