GENEVA, Ill., 25 Feb. 2016. Electronics distributor Richardson RFPD Inc. in Geneva, Ill, is offering the PE35400 UltraCMOS divide-by-4 prescaler from Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. in San Diego for wireless communications, test and measurement, and phased array radar applications.

The PE35400 UltraCMOS prescaler with a fixed divide ratio of 4 and an operating frequency range from 3 to 13.5 GHz. It operates on one voltage supply with a frequency-selecting bias resistor, draws a low current of 16 milliamps, and has a low SSB phase noise of -135 dBc/Hz at 3.025 GHz output frequency.

The PE35400 is available in bare die, and Richardson is offering full design support capabilities.

The device is manufactured on Peregrine's UltraCMOS process, a patented variation of silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology on a sapphire substrate, offering the performance of gallium arsenide with the economy and integration of conventional CMOS.
