SAN DIEGO, Aug. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., founder of RF SOI (silicon on insulator) and pioneer of advanced RF solutions, announces its sponsorship of an Aug. 20 Microwaves & RF webinar titled, "The Continuing Adventures of CMOS Technology—Power and Linearity at Microwave Frequencies." Peregrine's director of system integration Peter Bacon will deliver the presentation.
Since its invention in 1963, complementary metal–oxide–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.
This webinar will be on Thursday, Aug. 20 at 2 p.m. EDT (11 a.m. PDT) and will discuss:
- Technology, device and design factors affecting high frequency IC performance
- Performance advantages of UltraCMOS technology over traditional III-V MMIC technology offerings
- Benefits of a CMOS technology in the microwave and millimeter product space

After the live webinar, a video recording will be available in SOI University, a section of Peregrine's online newsroom. SOI University includes presentations, webinars and educational videos focused on RF SOI.
