Microsemi Corp., a provider of semiconductor solutions differentiated by power, security, reliability and performance, announced it has acquired the millimeter-wave technology and related assets of privately held Brijot Imaging Systems Inc.

Microsemi believes that its existing millimeter-wave technology, coupled with the technology just acquired, will enable Microsemi to assume a leadership position in passive millimeter-wave imaging solutions with an offering of products that play a key role in detection of weapons and contraband in airports, military branches, and government and law enforcement agencies. Microsemi's product offering will include the industry's first millimeterwave wand solution for touchless pat downs and will also support customers who need solutions that prevent internal loss and promote workplace safety.

"This acquisition strengthens Microsemi's millimeterwave technology offering in the 70-100 GHz range," said David Hall, Vice President of Microsemi's RFIS group. "The high quality products engineered by Brijot complement our product portfolio, enabling us to support existing and new customers with the highest levels of performance as industry requirements continue to evolve."

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
