Hittite To Purchase Keragis Assets

The acquisition will enable Hittite to provide high power GaAs and GaN wideband amplifiers
Hittite Microwave Corporation has entered into a definitive agreement to buy substantially all the assets of Keragis Corporation.

Keragis is a provider of high power, wideband amplifier modules, located in San Diego, California.

The purchase price was not disclosed.

This acquisition expands Hittite’s power amplifier (PA) portfolio and capabilities. This union combines Hittite’s capabilities of design and manufacture of high performance integrated circuits, modules and subsystems with Keragis’ patented wideband high power amplifier module products.

“Keragis’ power amplifiers in combination with Hittite’s semiconductor technologies, synthesiser and up/downconverter module portfolio will allow Hittite to expand its system content in both military and commercial applications that include electronic warfare, radar, communications, and test equipment," says Rick Hess, President and CEO of Hittite.

Keragis’ PAs use both GaAs and GaN semiconductor technologies.

The closing of the transaction is expected to occur within the next ninety days.

 



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
