Qorvo To Acquire Active-Semi International


Expands Qorvo’s addressable markets by over $3 billion

RF firm Qorvo has entered into an agreement to acquire Active-Semi International, a private fabless US supplier of programmable analogue power solutions. Active-Semi will become part of Qorvo's Infrastructure and Defence Products (IDP) group.

Bob Bruggeworth, president and CEO of Qorvo, said: “With the acquisition of Active-Semi, Qorvo will expand IDP's product offerings for existing customers and extend our reach into new high-growth power management markets. We see significant opportunities to accelerate adoption of Active-Semi's innovative analogue/mixed signal solutions across multiple markets by leveraging Qorvo's global scale, sales channel and customer relationships.”

Power efficiency is increasingly a core requirement in electronic applications in IDP's existing markets, including 5G base stations, active phased arrays for defence, automotive, and IoT. Active-Semi's programmable mixed signal power solutions are said to provide customers with simplicity, efficiency and design flexibility - resulting in smaller footprints, lower bill of material costs and reduced time to market.

Larry Blackledge, CEO of Active-Semi, said: “The combination of Active-Semi's programmable analogue power solutions with Qorvo's leading product and technology portfolio opens up vast opportunities to accelerate revenue, develop more highly integrated system solutions and target new high-growth markets, like 5G infrastructure.”
