Peregrine Releases UltraCMOS® Antenna Tuning Switch Optimized for High Performance, Ultra-Thin LTE-Advanced Smartphones

first_imgPeregrine Semiconductor has announced a single-pole, single throw (SPST) antenna tuning switch for LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) smartphones. This switch leverages Peregrine’s UltraCMOS® process using the HaRP™ and DuNE™ enhancements to deliver an ideal combination of performance and integration to 4G wireless platforms. The PE613010 antenna switch delivers the industry’s lowest resistance-on (Ron) of 1.2 Ohms from 700-2700MHz. This maximizes radiated performance of the antenna in support of higher data throughput, increased battery life and longer range for fewer dropped calls. Manufacturers can achieve this performance while also minimizing size in support of thinner form factor phones. The new PE613010 antenna tuning switch is supplied in a miniature 2 x 2 x 0.55 mm package that requires zero external components. Peregrine’s tuning products are designed to help 4G handset manufacturers implement tunable antennas, the benefits of which include faster data throughput, smaller size and enhanced overall consumer experience. The PE613010 antenna tuning switch has already been chosen by Pantech to drive performance in its new Vega LTE-A handset. “The emergence of LTE-A networks places significant RF design challenges on handset manufacturers to deliver an optimal user experience despite supporting the ever increasing number of frequency bands and higher data throughput,” said Dylan Kelly, vice president of the mobile wireless solutions business unit at Peregrine Semiconductor.  “The new PE613010 antenna tuning switch helps to solve these challenges, and as a result, has already been integrated into multiple 4G handsets. The feedback from customers has been very positive as Peregrine’s tuning solutions enable the performance gains required at the antenna for smartphones to support the full capabilities of LTE-A networks.” The PE613010 antenna tuning switch features high RF power handling and ruggedness, while meeting challenging harmonic and linearity requirements of LTE-A with Peregrine’s HaRP technology. With single-pin low voltage CMOS control, all decoding and biasing is integrated on-chip and no external bypassing or filtering components are required.  The PE613010 also features ESD tolerance of 2kV HBM on all pins, providing a monolithically integrated solution for tunable antennas.last_img read more

Yonge HS) each had eight rebounds for UWF.  The rebounds proved to be a difference for the Argos, as UWF had 17 second chance points compared to just three for the Tigers.Mendenhall, who had his three-pointer blocked in the final seconds, finished the night 7-13 from long range and led the Tigers with a game-high 23 points.  Jason Swanson added 14 points and nine rebounds.  The UWF defense held Richard Sirju, a 56.3 percent three-point shooter averaging 15.5 points per game entering Thursday, to just three points.UWF will look to pick up another conference win this Saturday against visiting Alabama-Huntsville, and tip-off is scheduled for 4:00 p.m.  For information on all UWF Athletics, visit www.GoArgos.com.

Ravenna boys edge North Muskegon 56-54 and improve to 15-0 on the season

first_img0 Bestseller $26.86$49.99 (33138) Bestseller By Andrew JohnsonLocalSportsJournal.comNORTH MUSKEGON – To complete a perfect regular season, a team needs nerves of steel to pull out close games, and more than a little luck.Conner Kilbourne brings the ball up for Ravenna. Photo/Marc HoeksemaThe Ravenna boys basketball team had both on Thursday, holding on through a slow fourth quarter and getting a break on a last-second shot to beat North Muskegon 56-54 in a tense West Michigan Conference battle.Ravenna improved to 15-0 overall and 11-0 in the conference. The Bulldogs will travel to Oakridge on Tuesday with a chance to clinch the conference championship.“It will be very similar and Oakridge is just as tough,” Ravenna Coach Courtney Kemp said about the next challenge. “It sure doesn’t get any easier.”The game very nearly went to overtime. With just 5.6 seconds left, the Norse executed a perfect full court play to get Jack Dobb open for a chance to tie the game.But Dobb’s shot along the left baseline was too strong and the clock expired, along with North Muskegon’s chance to pull off the upset.“We drew it up kind of like that,” said North Muskegon coach Chuck Rypstra about the final play. “We got a good baseline, 8-10 foot look at it. It worked out okay and it almost happened.”The two teams entered the fourth quarter tied 46-46, then points became hard to come by. The Bulldogs somehow managed to win against a good team on the road, despite scoring only eight points in the final eight minutes.“It’s so tough,” Kemp said. “I couldn’t tell you the last time we won here. We pride ourselves on defense, and we feel our defense can keep us in games.”No. 14 Trevor Stern handles the North Muskegon pressure. Photo/Marc HoeksemaThe game started out fast-paced and high scoring, with Ravenna holding a 20-17 lead after the opening quarter. Calvin Schullo and Trevor Sterken each scored six points for Ravenna. John Hayhurst and Trevor Schultz did the same for the Norse.Ravenna held a 34-30 halftime lead, thanks to a seven-point second quarter by Jacob May. North Muskegon’s Eric Rypstra got hot in the third quarter, scoring nine points to help the Norse tie the game at the third buzzer.With the Norse trailing 53-49, Schultz hit a deep three-pointer to cut the deficit to 53-52 with 1:14 remaining.Over the final 74 seconds, the lone point was a Sterken free throw that gave Ravenna its final margin of victory.“It feels great,” May said about continuing the undefeated season. “Every win adds to our confidence. We have a lot of seniors and we’ve been through a lot. We just have to continue to stay focused.”May and Schullo each had 14 points to lead Ravenna.  Eric Rypstra had 20 points and Dobb added 12 for North Muskegon.The Norse fell to 10-5 overall and 7-4 in West Michigan Conference play. They’ll next travel to Montague on Tuesday for another conference matchup.“We played really well,” Coach Rypstra said. “Hopefully it’s a springboard for us going forward into districts.” Shop Now Other (22) Share Bestseller The League Other Thank you!
