Peregrine Semiconductor presents the PE46120 as a new monolithic phase and amplitude controller (MPAC) enhanced with HaRP™ technology. It is designed for precise phase and amplitude control of two independent RF paths, and is ideal for wireless infrastructure, precision phase shifter, dual polarization antenna alignment, and analog linearization applications. This controller optimizes system performance while reducing the manufacturing costs of utilized transmitters.
The PE46120 MPAC integrates a 90° RF splitter, digital phase shifters, a digital step attenuator, and a low voltage CMOS serial interface. Features include a phase range of 87.2° in 2.8° steps, an attenuation range of 7.5 dB in 0.5 dB steps, an excellent phase and amplitude accuracy from 1.8–2.2 GHz, high linearity, high output port-to-port isolation, and extremely low power consumption. The controller is manufactured on Peregrine’s UltraCMOS® process, a patented variation of silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology on a sapphire substrate, and is housed in a 32-lead 6 x 6 mm QFN package.
