Peregrine unveils significant upgrades to carrier-grade Wi-Fi switch

Peregrine Semiconductor has unveiled the UltraCMOS PE42424 high-isolation, SPDT switch which has been optimised for 802.11ac carrier and enterprise Wi-Fi access points. A successor to last year’s PE42423, the upgraded switch is 75 percent smaller and features a 60-percent increase in power handling and a 350-percent faster switching speed. The PE42424 is intended for transmit/receive switching applications for outdoor Wi-Fi access points that require high power handling and rugged, high-temperature performance.
