Teledyne e2vTeledyne e2v inc, global leader in the high-reliability semiconductor market, and Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., founder of RF SOI (silicon on insulator) and pioneer of advanced RF solutions, have signed a strategic reseller agreement.  e2v will be the sole provider of Peregrine’s high-reliability integrated circuits (ICs) for the worldwide space market. This strategic RF relationship combines Peregrine’s expertise and proven track record in high-reliability RF and power management products with e2v’s leadership position in aerospace and defense qualified semiconductor products. The result is a broad e2v product offering that spans the signal chain from RF to back-end, including data converters, memory and high-performance data processing.

Peregrine is an MIL-PRF-38535 Qualified Manufacturers List (QML) certified supplier with a high-reliability standard catalog portfolio that includes RF switches, digital step attenuators (DSAs), prescalers, phase-locked loops (PLLs) and DC-DC converters. These UltraCMOS® products, along with newly introduced Peregrine QML RFIC products, will be sold exclusively through e2v.

“For over 15 years, Peregrine’s high-reliability RF solutions have provided reliable communications to hundreds of satellite systems and in missions to seven planets and several asteroids,” says Duncan Pilgrim, vice president and general manager of Peregrine Semiconductor’s high performance analog (HPA) business unit. “This strategic RF relationship enables our space customers to benefit from e2v’s expertise in the aerospace and defense market, while continuing to achieve the high performance standards they expect from Peregrine’s UltraCMOS products.”

For more than 30 years, e2v has supported aerospace and defense customers worldwide and currently offers more than 3,600 QML-approved products. Leveraging established relationships with the major prime defense contractors, e2v provides global sales support and customer care in the avionics, defense and space sectors.

“e2v is excited to support Peregrine’s high-reliability, radiation-tolerant RFICs and DC-DC power management products, along with e2v’s existing space-grade product offering of broadband data converters and microprocessors,” says Brad Little, general manager of e2v inc. “This strategic agreement leverages the technology strengths of both companies and will provide our customers with a complete data-processing solution.”
