pSemi files 1000th patent application

Murata company pSemi Corp of San Diego, CA, USA – a fabless provider of radio-frequency integrated circuits (RFICs) based on silicon-on-insulator (SOI) – says that it has grown its patent portfolio to more than 1000 issued and pending patents worldwide. From 2017 to 2021, the firm increased its patent holdings by 100%, reflecting its continued RFIC and power management innovation.

“For more than 30 years, pSemi has fostered a culture of innovation in which our talented inventors have pioneered novel technologies, industry-transformative architectures and unique design techniques,” says Takaki Murata, interim CEO. “This culture, reinforced by our continued R&D investment, has resulted in one of the industry’s strongest patent portfolios,” he claims.

pSemi’s semiconductor patent portfolio enhances and complements Murata’s portfolio of over 23,000 patents. Since Murata acquired the firm in 2014, pSemi’s portfolio has steadily grown, especially in recent years. In 2020 alone, pSemi filed nearly 150 patent applications. In addition to the quantity, the quality of pSemi’s semiconductor patent portfolio has been recognized as one of the industry’s most valuable in the IEEE Spectrum Patent Power Scorecard.

Since pSemi filed its first patent in 1993, the company has recognized more than 200 inventors. In addition to financial incentives, pSemi sponsors an Innovators Club that presents annual awards including ‘Patent of the Year’ and ‘Inventor of the Year’.
