Peregrine Semiconductor (San Diego, CA) has announced it is expanding its family of MultiSwitch STeP8 dual single-pole, seven throw (SP7T/SP7T) UltraCMOS antenna switches optimized to solve the significant carrier aggregation challenges of 4G mobile wireless applications as adopted by leading RF front-end module suppliers such as Murata Manufacturing. The LTE-A protocol calls for carrier aggregation – or the simultaneous reception of multiple frequency bands – which improves data delivery speed to dramatically improve consumer experience. Features include:
- Innovative combination of 2 SP7T switches in a single IC to support 14 different frequency bands.
- Exceptional linearity, insertion loss performance and small size.
- Designed specifically to solve the challenges of carrier aggregation.
