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.
