High reliability semiconductor specialist e2v has signed a deal with Peregrine Semiconductor under which it will become the sole provider of the latter’s high reliability circuits to the space market. The deal, says e2v, will allow it to offer products that span the signal chain from RF to back end, including data converters, memory and high performance data processing.

Duncan Pilgrim, general manager of Peregrine’s high performance analogue business unit, said: “This strategic RF relationship enables our space customers to benefit from e2v’s expertise in the aerospace and defence market, while continuing to achieve the high performance standards they expect from Peregrine’s UltraCMOS products.”

Brad Little, general manager of e2v, added: “This strategic agreement leverages the technology strengths of both companies and will provide our customers with a complete data-processing solution.”
Peregrine’s high reliability portfolio includes RF switches, digital step attenuators, prescalers, phase locked loops and DC/DC converters.
