Peregrine Semiconductor In Satellite Design Win

San Diego-based radio frequency semiconductor developer Peregrine Semiconductor reported a design win yesterday, saying that its chips were designed into six, Globalstar mobile communications satellites which were launched in February. The firm said its UltraCMOS Phase Locked Loop (PLL) frequency synthesizer and prescaler devices were launched into orbit with the six Globalstar mobile communications satellites launched in February by Thales Alenia Space in France. The firm's chips are being used as part of equipment for transmitting audio and data communications on the satellites.
