Original Press Release:

Richardson RFPD Introduces Two New UltraCMOS® 60 GHz RF SOI Switches from Peregrine

New devices feature fast switching speed of only 8 nanoseconds

Richardson RFPD, Inc. announced today the availability and full design support capabilities for two new UltraCMOS® RF silicon-on-insulator (SOI) switches from Peregrine Semiconductor Corporation.

The PE42525 and PE426525 are HaRP™ technology-enhanced reflective SPDT RF switch die that support a wide frequency range, from 9 kHz to 60 GHz. They deliver low insertion loss, high isolation and a fast switching time of only 8 nanoseconds.

The PE42525 is ideal for T&M equipment, microwave-backhaul solutions and higher frequency switching in 5G systems. The PE426525 boasts an extended temperature range (-55 °C to +125 °C), making it desirable for harsh-environment applications in industrial markets.

According to Peregrine, additional key features of the PE42525 and PE426525 include:

  • Low insertion loss
    • 1.3 dB @ 26.5 GHz
    • 1.7 dB @ 45 GHz
    • 1.9 dB @ 50 GHz
    • 2.7 dB @ 60 GHz
  • High port to port isolation
    • 41 dB @ 26.5 GHz
    • 38 dB @ 45 GHz
    • 37 dB @ 50 GHz
    • 36 dB @ 60 GHz
  • High linearity: IIP3 of +48 dBm
