Peregrine and RFMD settle litigation over RF SOI technology

Peregrine Semiconductor Corp of San Diego, CA, USA - a fabless provider of radio-frequency integrated circuits (RFICs) based on silicon-on-sapphire (SOS) and silicon-on-insulator (SOI) - and RF Micro Devices Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA have settled all outstanding claims between each other. The two parties have entered into patent cross licenses and have agreed to dismiss all related litigation “under terms that recognize Peregrine’s unique role in the invention and commercialization of RF SOI technology,” says Peregrine’s CEO Jim Cable. “This agreement provides validation for the many ways in which Peregrine continues to expand the industry’s technological frontiers through both our inventions and commercial products.,” he adds.

“We are very pleased to reach an agreement with Peregrine that recognizes the value of their patents and their contribution to the development of RF SOI,” states RFMD’s president & CEO Bob Bruggeworth. “The signing of this patent cross-license agreement allows RFMD to focus 100% on building the industry’s leading portfolio of RF solutions, making this agreement very positive for both our company and our customers.”
