Peregrine expands European operations

Peregrine Semiconductor Corp of San Diego, CA, USA, a fabless provider of radio-frequency (RF) integrated circuits (ICs) based on silicon-on-sapphire (SOS), has expanded its European operations with the opening of a design, manufacturing and sales facility in Reading, UK.

The new facility focuses on developing dedicated RFIC products of European content in order to better address European requirements, including those of the commercial, industrial, and high-reliability (hi-rel) markets, which have been a cornerstone for Peregrine’s growth across Europe. The facility will also provide design services for Peregrine’s next-generation UltraCMOS RFIC portfolio, sold worldwide.

Europe has been instrumental in the worldwide adoption of the firm’s UltraCMOS technology, says Dave Shepard, VP of the High-Performance Solutions business unit. “Some of the world’s most visionary designs originate in the European region, and this expansion of our global design, sales support, and manufacturing operations further demonstrates our commitment to the European RF engineering community,” he adds. 

Multiple product families will be developed at the new facility, including digital step attenuators, phase-locked loop (PLL) frequency synthesizers, and RF switches. Also, Peregrine is looking for employees to join its European team as part of its 2012 expansion plan, which so far has included a substantial increase in its global workforce.
