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.
“This is a giant step forward for Peregrine’s high reliability products and demonstrates our continued commitment to serving the aerospace and defense market—an industry we have served for over 15 years,” says Duncan Pilgrim, vice president and general manager of Peregrine Semiconductor’s high performance analog (HPA) business unit. “As we celebrate this QML certification, we’re actively taking the next steps to qualify and release Peregrine’s space and military product portfolio as standard microcircuit drawings (SMDs).”
Peregrine offers many high reliability products for the aerospace and defense industry including RF switches, digital step attenuators (DSAs), prescalers, phase-locked loops (PLLs) and DC-DC converters, based on Peregrine’s own technologies. Built on Peregrine’s UltraCMOS® technology on a sapphire substrate, these high reliability products offer proven RF performance and unique integration capabilities.
