Intern, Characterization Group Peregrine Semiconductor
Peregrine Semiconductor is a fabless provider of high-performance radio frequency integrated circuits, or RFICs. The Company?s solutions leverage proprietary UltraCMOS technology, which enables the design, manufacture, and integration of multiple RF, mixed-signal, and digital functions on a single chip. The Company?s products deliver what we believe is an industry leading combination of performance and monolithic integration, and target a broad range of applications in the aerospace and defense, broadband, industrial, mobile wireless device, test and measurement equipment, and wireless infrastructure markets. UltraCMOS technology combines the ability to achieve the high levels of performance of traditional specialty processes, with the fundamental benefits of standard CMOS, the most widely used semiconductor process technology. UltraCMOS technology utilizes a synthetic sapphire substrate, a near-perfect electrical insulator, providing low parasitic capacitance and enabling high signal isolation and excellent broadband linearity. These attributes result in RF devices with excellent high-frequency performance and power handling performance, reduced crosstalk between frequencies, and enhanced network efficiency.
Peregrine Semiconductor has engineered design advancements, including the patented HaRP? technology which significantly improves harmonic and linearity performance, and the patent-pending UltraCMOS Tuning technology, a circuit design technique used to develop advanced digitally tunable capacitor (DTC) products. The Company offers a broad portfolio of high-performance RFICs including switches, digitally tunable capacitors (DTCs), digital attenuators, frequency synthesizers, mixers, prescalers, and DC-DC converters, and is developing power amplifiers (PAs). Peregrine products are sold worldwide through direct sales and field applications engineering staff and a network of independent sales representatives and distribution partners.
Peregrine Semiconductor is a publicly-held company with a fast growth rate. The Company?s unique technology and potential for professional advancement make this an excellent career opportunity for innovative and goal-oriented individuals.
Peregrine Semiconductor is an equal opportunity employer supporting a diverse workforce.
