The Continuing Adventures of CMOS Technology—Power and Linearity at Microwave Frequencies

This August 2015 Microwaves & RF webinar discussed:
â?¢ Technology, device and design factors affecting high frequency IC performance
â?¢ Performance advantages of Peregrine's UltraCMOS® technology over traditional III-V MMIC technology offerings
â?¢ Benefits of a CMOS technology in the microwave and millimeter product space

Since its invention in 1963, complementary metalâ??oxideâ??semiconductor (CMOS) technology has been the underdog of technologies and has had to prove itself against incumbent technologies. Leveraging the simple, yet capital-intensive concept of gate length scaling, CMOS continues to take over markets once thought owned by the entrenched technologies. Coupled with an extremely low loss substrate, UltraCMOS® technology from Peregrine Semiconductor is well suited for microwave and millimeter applications. It is displacing gallium arsenide (GaAs) and other compound solutions that have historically serviced these high frequency ranges.
