RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

Peregrine Semiconductor Breaking High Frequency Barriers in RF SOI
World's First High Frequency RF SOI Mixer
Our UltraCMOS® high frequency
portfolio debunks the industry's perceived boundaries of RF silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology. It is our UltraCMOS technology
platform that enables Peregrine to reach these high frequencies without compromising performance or reliability.
At the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) 2016, we announced the addition of the UltraCMOS
PE41901 image reject mixer into our growing portfolio
of high frequency RF SOI products. The PE41901 is ideal for test and measurement (T&M) systems and Ku band earth terminals
such as very small aperture terminal (VSAT) and point-to-point communication systems.
MMPAC Product Family Now Supports High Frequency Beamforming
We also added the UltraCMOS
a monolithic phase and amplitude controller (MPAC) solution for beamforming. This new MPAC-Beamforming device covers a frequency
range of 8 to 12 GHz, and it expands Peregrine's MPAC product family into higher frequencies. The PE19601 is designed for
X-band radar applications including active electronically scanned array (AESA) weather, air-traffic control and military
Thank you to everyone who visited our IMS booth. From engaging discussions to powerful product demos,
IMS 2016 proved to be a wonderful industry gathering. Thank you to the 2,000+ people who took our
RF Integration IQ quiz.
We're looking forward to IMS 2017.
