Hittite Microwave to purchase the assets of Keragis

March 19, 2014

Hittite Microwave Corp. announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to buy substantially all the assets of the Keragis Corp., a provider of extremely high power, wideband amplifier modules, located in San Diego, CA. The purchase price was not disclosed.

This acquisition expands Hittite's power amplifier portfolio and capabilities. This union combines Hittite's world class capabilities of design and manufacture of high performance integrated circuits (IC's), modules and subsystems with Keragis' patented extremely 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," said Rick Hess, President and CEO of Hittite.

 Keragis' power amplifiers utilize both gallium arsenide and gallium nitride semiconductor technologies. The closing of the transaction is expected to occur within the next 90 days.
