1 Introduction
1.1 Purpose
The purpose of this quality manual is to define Peregrine Semiconductors quality
management system and policies. This manual acts as the foundation of Peregrines
quality management system which is based upon and complies with the international
standard AS 9100C, ISO 9001:2008 and ISO/TS16949:2009.
1.2 Scope
This quality manual applies to all Peregrine Semiconductor facilities and operations

2 Corporate Overview
2.1 Scope of the QMS (Quality Management System)
The scope of the QMS is the design, development, manufacture, and test of high-
performance communications RFICs for the wireless infrastructure, mobile wireless;
broadband communications and infrastructure; and high-reliability markets. These ICs
are manufactured on the companys proprietary UltraCMOS mixed-signal process

2.2 Overview
Peregrine Semiconductor Corporation products are uniquely poised to meet the needs
of a global RF design community in high-growth applications such as LTE, HSDPA and
WCDMA digital cellular and mobile TV; broadband communications such as
DTV/PCTV/DVR; and in high-reliability applications such as telecom infrastructure,
industrial, automotive, military and satellite systems. Peregrine UltraCMOS devices
are manufactured under licensed foundry partnerships with CMOS semiconductor
manufacturers located throughout the world. The Company, headquartered in San
Diego, California, maintains global sales support operations and a worldwide technical
distribution network. See Figure 1 for global design, manufacturing and sales support
locations. Additional information is available on the web at
UltraCMOS mixed-signal process technology is a patented advancement of silicon-
on-insulator (SOI) technology on a sapphire substrate providing high yields,
competitive costs and a viable alternative to compound semiconductor technologies.
UltraCMOS delivers significant performance advantages over competing processes
such as GaAs, SiGe, BiCMOS and bulk silicon CMOS in applications where RF
performance, low power and high levels of integration are paramount. These
measurable power and size savings offer advantages for both manufacturers and
consumers, including longer battery life, smaller batteries, lower power consumption
and bills, less electronic wasteand a greener RF solution. Further, the companys
revolutionary HaRP and DuNE technologies further exploit the fundamental
benefits of silicon-on-sapphire, enabling dramatic improvements in harmonic results,
linearity, power handling and overall RF performance which today remain unmatched
by any other RF process technology.
