WIN Semiconductors Corp. Releases Next Generation High Performance Enhancement/Depletion Mode pHEMT Technology

PE15 platform delivers high performance single supply operation for applications from 20GHz through 60GHz, and provides unique design solutions for ESD protection and dense integration.

Tao Yuan, Taiwan – May 19, 2015: WIN Semiconductors Corp. (TPEx:3105), the world’s largest pure-play compound semiconductor foundry, today announced the release of its sixth generation Enhancement-Depletion mode GaAs Pseudomorphic HEMT technology for high performance RF and mm-Wave applications. This new platform, PE15, combines a 0.15µm E-mode transistor with ft>110GHz, with monolithic PN diodes for compact ESD protection, and optional modules for low current E/D logic and RF switching. These design solutions are realized within an environmentally robust backend platform that is compatible with advanced integration techniques such as bump/flip chip assembly and isolated through-wafer RF connections. PE15 is a versatile technology that provides excellent gain/bandwidth, power and noise performance, and enables unique design solutions for diverse applications including Ka-band, 5G infrastructure and 100G optical components.

WIN Semiconductors Corp. continues to invest in its market leading pHEMT technology portfolio and supports the entire industry with access to these advances embodied by the PE15 platform. This technology leverages WIN’s qualified production techniques and industry leading manufacturing scale, and represents a new platform that can be extended and optimized to address rapidly evolving market requirements.
