#Peregrine introduces UltraCMOS 10 technology to advance RF design with SOI @psemi #SOS #CMOS #SOI #RFswitches
Smartphone makers face tough design challenges, says Peregrine, including balancing performance requirements with cost and maintaining consumers’ signal quality and data-rate speeds despite the increasing number of frequency bands and volume of data. “The iPhone 5S has more than double the frequency bands than the iPhone 5, and this is just one example of how dramatically the requirements for smartphone components are increasing,” comments Joe Madden, principal analyst of Radio Access and RF Semiconductors at Mobile Experts. LTE units are expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 42% from 150 million in 2012 to 1.2 billion in 2018. “Peregrine’s UltraCMOS 10 technology will outpace these increasing performance needs so consumers will continue to see improved connectivity,” he adds.
