PENANG, Malaysia and SAN DIEGO, CA --- Aemulus and Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. announce their strategic partnership in the development of a new microwave frequency tester. Building on the success of Aemulus's Amoeba™ AMB7600 RF tester, this next-generation test solution will extend its support into microwave frequency bands and enable more complex testing.
For this new tester, the Aemulus Amoeba AMB7600 will be upgraded with key peripheral modules to expand into microwave bands X, Ku and Ka. The AMB7600 is the world's first true multi-site, multi-instance RF tester, and it supports RF, digital and analog testing. While the AMB7600 addresses RF front-end devices, the new tester will enable more complex testing, such as the rigorous testing needs of radar products and mixers. Currently in design development, the new tester will be integrated into Peregrine's test infrastructure in fall 2016 and will have full implementation by spring 2017.
Debunking the industry's perceived boundaries of RF SOI technology, Peregrine Semiconductor's high frequency portfolio includes RF switches, an image-reject mixer and monolithic phase and amplitude controllers (MPACs). It is Peregrine's UltraCMOS® technology platform that enables the company to reach these high frequencies without compromising performance or reliability.
