Murata owned pSemi has further extended the frequency of operation of its RF SOI switches up to 67 GHz. pSemi launched three new UltraCMOS switches operating from 9 kHz to 67 GHz to meet challenging mmWave system designs, which need high-speed switches for designing phased array antennas. Available in flip-chip die form, the PE42545 SP4T supports up to 67 GHz, and the PE42525 SPDT supports up to 60 GHz. Available in a small 3 x 3 mm LGA package, the PE42546 SP4T supports up to 45 GHz.
pSemi says these new lesser footprint consuming switches designed to deliver low insertion loss, higher linearity, shorter switching time and higher power handling at FR2 frequencies. pSemi suggest these components for designing equipments used in test and measurement, wireless infrastructure (5G base stations), satellite and point-to-point microwave communication applications.
pSemi is offering a range of products for designing 5G mmWave based systems to deliver faster data rates for applications such as augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and artificial intelligence (AI).
“Demand for enhanced streaming and augmented, virtual and mixed reality experiences are accelerating the commercialization of mmWave. pSemi continues to expand its portfolio of mmWave switches, digital step attenuators, beamformers and up-down converters, and to invest in technology that supports customer needs as higher frequency spectrum is released.” says Vikas Choudhary - Vice President, Sales & Marketing.
