Hittite to buy assets of Keragis

Hittite Microwave Corp of Chelmsford, MA, USA (which designs and supplies analog, digital and mixed-signal RF, microwave and millimeter-wave ICs, modules and subsystems as well as instrumentation) has entered into a definitive agreement to buy substantially all the assets of Keragis Corp of San Diego, CA.

Founded in 1993 and privately owned by Robert and Maria Rector, Keragis provides high-power, wideband amplifier modules (operating at 0.5-32GHz) that utilize both gallium arsenide (GaAs) and gallium nitride (GaN). The high-performance military-grade and rugged commercial products have applications in RF and microwave systems, including radar subsystems, rack-mounted instruments, phased arrays and tow decoys.

The acquisition expands Hittite’s power amplifier portfolio, combining Hittite’s capabilities in designing and manufacturing ICs, modules and subsystems with Keragis’ patented wideband high-power amplifier module products.

“Keragis’ power amplifiers, in combination with Hittite’s semiconductor technologies, synthesizer 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 Hittite’s president & CEO Rick Hess.

The transaction is expected to close within the next 90 days.
