Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. has teamed up with Murata Manufacturing on a multi-source arrangement for RF switches and other components. Under the terms of the deal, Murata would be granted a license to design and manufacture RF switches and other switch-related components using Peregrine's UltraCMOS technology and IP.

"Global OEM customers of both Peregrine and Murata have for some time requested that the companies implement an independent source of supply for the critical switching elements that are widely utilised in today's smart phones and other wireless-communications products," said Jim Cable, Peregrine's president and CEO. "This agreement marks the first license of Peregrine's core switch-based intellectual property to a third party and we look forward to entering into this collaborative arrangement with Murata."

Norio Nakajima, Murata's VP, communication business unit, stated, "Peregrine has fundamental IP in CMOS-based switches and tuning products with its UltraCMOS technology. This IP licensing arrangement solidifies our existing relationship and future collaboration with Peregrine. We believe that the combination of Murata's filter and packaging technology with Peregrine's UltraCMOS switch and tuning technology is a formidable RF front-end solution."
