Peregrine Semiconductor is a high-performance radio frequency integrated circuit design company. The products offer industry-leading performance solutions ,combining single-chip integration for a broad range of applications in aerospace and military, broadcasting, industrial, mobile wireless, test and measurement, and wireless infrastructure equipment.The semiconductor-based solutions utilize proprietary UltraCMOS? technology, which enables the design and manufacture of a single chip integration.The UltraCMOS RF process technology is an advanced form of silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology that combines the basic benefits of "standard CMOS", widely used semiconductor process, with highly insulating substrates. A unique generation of products using the UltraCMOS process, called "STePs," each node offers greater design flexibility and enhanced RF performance.
Sensor development kits from Infineon will significantly reduce design effort, resulting in shorter development times and lower system costs. Industrial applications include speed detection for production and building automation and electric drive control devices.
Linear Technology Corporation, a subsidiary of Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), introduced a complete lithium-ion battery backup management system, the LTC4091, for power rails from 3.45V to 4.45V. Must remain active when the main power supply fails for a long time.
