Murata company pSemi Corp of San Diego, CA, USA (formerly Peregrine Semiconductor Corp) – a fabless provider of radio-frequency integrated circuits (RFICs) based on silicon-on-insulator (SOI) – has announced several organizational changes, including the promotion of two directors to vice presidents, a simplified organizational structure and a change in role for CEO Stefan Wolff. These changes come amidst a record-breaking quarter as pSemi prepares for additional rapid growth. The firm is projected to end this quarter in September with revenue 15% higher than the prior record.

Wolff will step down as CEO on 1 October. Former CEO and current chief technology officer Jim Cable will serve as CEO pro tem. To support the transition, Wolff will remain as strategic advisor until December, when he will return to Germany to be closer to his family.

“pSemi is only beginning to harness and deliver its innovative products on a large scale,” comments Wolff. “We have a fantastic team to deliver what the market needs next, a full design-win pipeline, an award-winning patent portfolio and outstanding support from our parent company, Murata,” he adds. “Our team, our business and our product portfolio have grown substantially. With our simplified organizational structure and the addition of further industry expertise to our leadership team, I am confident pSemi can effectively scale the business to the next level and become Murata’s center of excellence for RF, mixed-signal, power, optical and ASIC semiconductors.”

The firm will promote Donna Fenn to vice president of HR and Anil Tata to vice president of IT, effective 1 October. Fenn joined pSemi in 2016 as director of HR and, under her leadership, headcount has grown to more than 580 staff. Tata joined pSemi in 2015 as director of IT, and he has effectively scaled the enterprise’s systems. Both positions will report directly to the CEO and will support additional internal needs and more collaboration with Murata.
