Ixys Corp., a manufacturer of power semiconductors and specialized ICs, has acquired Microwave Technology Inc. (MwT), a manufacturer of GaAs field effect transistors, pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistors, and microwave monolithic ICs.

The acquired MwT also supplies RF and microwave frequency amplifier modules and function blocks that operate up to 30GHz for wireless telecom infrastructure, industrial, medical equipment, and defense applications. As a result of the merger, MwT is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Ixys.

"MwT fits our strategy of expanding our RF technology and products, as part of our new Ixys RF initiative," said Nathan Zommer, CEO of Ixys. "With Ixys' recent penetration into the RF market, mainly with silicon-based devices, it is important to note that the GaAs technology that MwT owns allows us to penetrate the higher frequency range all the way to about 30GHz."
