Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq: PSMI), founder of radio frequency silicon on insulator (RF SOI) and pioneer of advanced RF solutions, announced Tuesday shipment of the first RF switches built on the UltraCMOS 10 technology platform.
With partner GlobalFoundries, the company also announced the completion of product and process qualification for the advanced RF SOI technology.
Introduced in October 2013, UltraCMOS 10 technology provides smartphone manufacturers with unparalleled performance and flexibility.
The 130 nm technology combines the performance of UltraCMOS technology with the economies of SOI, and it delivers a more than 50-percent performance improvement over comparable solutions.
The advanced technology addresses the unique growth requirements for mobile applications and is the foundation for Peregrine’s next-generation RF switches, tuners and power amplifiers, including the industry’s first reconfigurable RF front end, UltraCMOS Global 1.
