e2v to be global strategic re-seller of Peregrine's high-reliability RF products for space market

e2v inc of Milpitas, CA, USA (which provides solutions, sub-systems and components to the medical & science, aerospace & defense and commercial & industrial markets) has signed a strategic re-seller agreement to be the sole provider to the worldwide space market of high-reliability integrated circuits (ICs) made by Peregrine Semiconductor Corp of San Diego, CA, USA, a fabless provider of radio-frequency integrated circuits (RFICs) based on silicon-on-insulator (SOI).

The strategic RF relationship combines Peregrine's expertise and track record in high-reliability RF and power management products with e2v's position in aerospace & defense-qualified semiconductor products. The result is said to be 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), pre-scalers, 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, VP & general manager of Peregrine'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," he adds. 

For more than 30 years, e2v has supported aerospace & defense customers worldwide and currently offers more than 3600 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 will 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 e2v's general manager Brad Little. "This strategic agreement leverages the technology strengths of both companies and will provide our customers with a complete data-processing solution."
