SoS RFIC supplier Peregrine strikes global distribution agreement with Digi-Key

Internet-based electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corp of Thief River Falls, MN, USA and fabless radio-frequency integrated circuit (RFIC) supplier Peregrine Semiconductor of San Diego, CA have finalized a global distribution agreement involving Peregrine’s UltraCMOS silicon-on-sapphire (SOS) RFIC products.

Peregrine’s RF switches, digital step attenuators, PLL frequency synthesizers, mixers and prescalers are now available for purchase on Digi-Key’s global websites and will be featured in future online catalogs.

Peregrine leverages its proprietary UltraCMOS technology to enable the design, manufacture, and integration of multiple RF, mixed-signal and digital functions on a single chip. Products target a broad range of applications in the aerospace & defense, broadband, industrial, mobile wireless device, test & measurement equipment, and wireless infrastructure markets.

“Our goal is to provide the best products from antenna in to data out, and we believe Peregrine’s advanced technology will help us achieve that goal,” says Mark Zack, Digi-Key’s VP of semiconductor product.

“OEM engineering teams designing tomorrow’s wireless products are increasingly faced with complex RF integration challenges, and they need simple solutions, fast,” says Dale Robinette, Peregrine’s director of worldwide sales. “Peregrine continues to drive its growth by accessing new customers in all parts the world; adding Digi-Key to our channel partner strategy broadens our reach to this audience, expands our sales support capability, and ultimately puts our product closer to the customer.”
