RF Engineers Can Now Use X-Microwave's Advanced Simulation and Prototype System to Evaluate Peregrine's RF Products
Round Rock, Texas and San Diego - May 17, 2016 - X-Microwave, LLC, the innovative leader in modular system design, and
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., founder of RF SOI (silicon on insulator) and pioneer of advanced RF solutions,
announce their collaboration and the addition of Peregrine's RF products to X-Microwave's online simulation tool and hardware
prototyping system. X-Microwave's building-block system simplifies the modular design process and enables RF engineers to
easily simulate and prototype RF and microwave circuits. To kick off this relationship,
16 Peregrine products are being added to the X-Microwave system as drop-in X-MWblock™ components.
At the heart of X-Microwave's system is an X-MWblock portfolio of hundreds of physically
compatible, drop-in or drop-on components. These components are highly characterized and modeled with X-Parameters and S-Parameters
at the system block level. To create a modular design, X-Microwave provides a free, non-linear online simulation tool that
leverages Keysight's Genesys Spectrasys engine. After simulation, X-MWblock drop-in components are used to prototype systems
through X-Microwave's innovative prototype station for testing, aligning and configuring integrated microwave assemblies
up to 50 GHz. Finally, the same X-MWblock components can be moved from the prototype station directly to machined housings
for production hardware, eliminating the need for custom layouts.
"From a concept to final production hardware, X-Microwave streamlines the complete design process," says John Richardson,
president and CEO at X-Microwave. "Peregrine's impressive RF product portfolio is an important addition to the X-Microwave
building-block system. Peregrine is recognized as a leading RF manufacturer, and our users will benefit from the ability
to drop in Peregrine's products into their X-Microwave-based modular designs."
The Peregrine products now available in the X-Microwave system include RF switches, digital step attenuators, tuning
control switches, power limiters and monolithic phase and amplitude controllers. These products have a prominent link on
their Peregrine webpage that directs users to the product's X-MWblock webpage.
"X-Microwave offers a solution for RF engineers who need a sophisticated evaluation platform for system design simulations
and quick prototyping," says Kinana Hussain, director of marketing at Peregrine Semiconductor. "X-Microwave's innovative
system provides another avenue for our customers to evaluate our industry-leading RF products, especially in higher frequencies."
X-Microwave, LLC, is the founder of the innovative modular building block system called X-MWsystem. X-Microwave's modular
drop-in components and online tools address every phase of the RF and microwave development process from concept to prototype
to production hardware. To "Get on the Grid" and realize the full potential of X-Microwave's modular system, visit
