Peregrine Semiconductor appoints RFMW as global distributor

Peregrine Semiconductor Corp of San Diego, CA, USA, a fabless provider of radio-frequency (RF) integrated circuits (ICs) based on silicon-on-sapphire (SOS), and RF and microwave component distributor RFMW Ltd of San Jose, CA, USA have finalized a worldwide distribution agreement for Peregrine’s UltraCMOS RFICs.

RFMW will stock, distribute and provide applications engineering support for Peregrine Semiconductor’s broad product portfolio, including RF switches, digital step attenuators, prescalers, mixers, Phase Locked Loop frequency synthesizers, and Digitally Tunable Capacitors.

“RFMW’s focus on RF products, technology, and customers is a highly complementary solution to Peregrine’s existing global sales network,” said Dale Robinette, director of worldwide sales for Peregrine Semiconductor. “Our partnership with RFMW gives us visibility into the very early design stages of customer projects, where our unique UltraCMOS technology process and high performance provide the most benefit.”

Joel Levine, president of RFMW Ltd, added, “Peregrine Semiconductor’s UltraCMOS technology enables the development of highly-integrated RFICs that combine RF, mixed signal, and digital functions on a single chip. We’ve seen requirements in certain market segments for this type of integration while, at the same time, many of our customers design with discrete devices such as switches, and digital attenuators. Peregrine’s product portfolio satisfies the requirements of both. Our immediate goal is to introduce customers to Peregrine’s portfolio, in order to expand design-in opportunities.”
