RF-SOI powerhouse Peregrine Semiconductor has announced the Global 1 (press release here), billed as “the industry’s first reconfigurable RF front-end system”. The company says it features the industry’s first LTE CMOS PA with the same raw performance as the leading gallium arsenide (GaAs) PAs and has a 33-percent efficiency increase over other CMOS Pas.
Peregrine notes that this platform leverages 25 years of RF expertise with proven performance demonstrated by more than 2 billion RF-SOI units shipped.
