Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a divide-by-4 prescaler from Peregrine Semiconductor Corporation.
The PE35400 is a high-performance UltraCMOS® prescaler with a fixed divide ratio of 4 and an operating frequency range from 3 to 13.5 GHz. It operates on a single voltage supply with a frequency-selecting bias resistor, draws a low current of 16 mA, and has a low SSB phase noise of -135 dBc/Hz at 3.025 GHz output frequency.
The PE35400 is available in bare die and is designed for wireless communications, test and measurement, and phased array radar applications.
The new device is manufactured on Peregrine’s UltraCMOS process, a patented variation of silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology on a sapphire substrate, offering the performance of GaAs with the economy and integration of conventional CMOS.
