Peregrine Semiconductor Corporation, a provider of high-performance radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs) has released the PE64906, PE64907, PE64908 and PE64909digitally tunable capacitors for wireless applications
Featuring a capacitance range of 0.6-7.7 pF and support power handling up to 34dBm into 50 ohms (30 Vpk RF), the new capacitors “provide an easy-to-use solution for antenna tuning and impedance matching applications, as well as tunable filters and phase shifters in the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), military radio, Test-and-Measurement, Machine-to-Machine and wireless infrastructure markets,” Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. said. The 2 mm x 2mm packages also incorporates integrated bias generation, RF filtering and bypassing, control interface and ESD protection of 2 kV HBM.
“The growing complexity of wireless systems continues to drive the need for high-performance tunable products,” Mark Schrepferman, director of the communications and industrial product line for Peregrine’s high-performance solutions business unit, said. “This latest expansion of our DTC product portfolio allows us to support a greater number of architectures for impedance matching, tunable filters and phase shifter applications in a variety of markets.”
