Peregrine expands patent portfolio by 50% to over 280 patents since Murata acquisition

Peregrine Semiconductor Corp of San Diego, CA, USA – a fabless provider of radio-frequency integrated circuits (RFICs) based on silicon-on-insulator (SOI) – says that it has expanded its intellectual property (IP) portfolio to over 280 issued and pending patents. Since its acquisition by Japan's Murata in December 2014, Peregrine has increased its patent portfolio by 50% and is on track to exceed 300 issued and pending patents by the end of 2016.

The firm says that, as it further strengthens its IP portfolio, it has established more robust internal processes to protect its RF and power advances: 70% of Peregrine's design and process engineers are directly involved in the patent process.

"Peregrine has an over 25-year history of industry-leading innovation, and most of our patents have a large number of claims, which is indicative of the inventions' scope," says Dan Nobbe, VP of corporate research & IP development. "We remain committed to pursuing many foundational patents based on our groundbreaking work in RF SOI," he adds.

Peregrine's patent portfolio protects product and technology inventions for its two business units — mobile wireless solutions (MWS) and high-performance analog (HPA). The portfolio has patents granted by both the US Patent & Trademark Office and by the national patent office of select other countries.
