Peregrine Semiconductor to acquire Arctic Sand Technologies

Posted 23 March 2017

Peregrine Semiconductor, a Murata company and the founder of RF Silicon on Insulator, has recently announced its acquisition of Arctic Sand Technologies, an MIT spin-off that designs and manufactures low-power semiconductors for use in DC-DC power conversion applications. This strategic acquisition is designed to help accelerate Murata’s vision to revolutionize power electronics with the world’s smallest, most efficient power solutions.

Peregrine was acquired in December 2014 by Murata Manufacturing Co Ltd, which designs and manufactures ceramic-based passive electronic components & solutions, communication modules and power supply modules. The strategic acquisition of Arctic Sand is intended to accelerate Murata’s aim to revolutionize power electronics with the smallest, most efficient power solutions.

“Peregrine and Murata gain Arctic Sand’s disruptive technology, strong IP portfolio and world-class team,” says Jim Cable, chairman & chief technology officer of Peregrine and global R&D director at Murata Manufacturing. “We’re building the power integrated circuit (IC) ‘dream team’. We will now leverage Peregrine’s semiconductor expertise to accelerate the adoption of Arctic Sand’s technology and their ability to ship in volume,” he adds. “With this acquisition, we’re one step closer to dramatically smaller, lighter, faster and more efficient power solutions.”
