Peregrine Semiconductor's Patent Portfolio Surpasses 450 Issued and Pending Patents

"IEEE Spectrum" Patent Scorecard Ranks Peregrine's Portfolio Among the Technology World's Most Valuable Patent Portfolios--6th in the Semiconductor-Manufacturing Sector and 24th Overall

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 7, 2017 — (PRNewswire) —  Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., founder of RF SOI (silicon on insulator) and pioneer of advanced RF solutions, announces the expansion of its intellectual property (IP) portfolio to over 450 issued and pending patents. According to the "IEEE Spectrum" published scorecard, " Patent Power 2016", Peregrine Semiconductor's portfolio is now recognized as one of the technology world's most valuable patent portfolios. This annually published benchmark ranks the pipeline power of Peregrine's portfolio 6th in the semiconductor-manufacturing sector and 24th overall. This overall ranking combines 17 industry scorecards and places Peregrine's U.S. patent portfolio among organizations such as Google, Apple, Qualcomm, Facebook, Intel, IBM, Microsoft, Samsung and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).  

Dan Nobbe, Peregrine’s vice president of corporate research & IP development, and Erica Poole, IP manager, spearhead Peregrine’s patent filing initiatives.

Since the Murata acquisition in December of 2014, Peregrine has focused on continuous invention and has more than doubled its patent portfolio. This rapid portfolio expansion has been achieved through both company innovation and strategic acquisitions, such as Peregrine's March 2017 acquisition of power management startup, Arctic Sand Technologies.

"While we celebrate the increased size of Peregrine's patent portfolio, we are most proud of the quality of our portfolio," says Dan Nobbe, vice president of corporate research & IP development at Peregrine Semiconductor. "It is a recognition of the innovation of Peregrine's engineers and the pioneering role Peregrine has played in the commercialization of RF SOI technology. Peregrine's Top-25 ranking on the 'Patent Power 2016 Scorecard' signifies our inventiveness and benchmarks the strength of our portfolio against the technology world's most valuable patent portfolios. This objective ranking also validates our company-wide focus on invention and proves the value of Murata's continued investment and commitment to our IP portfolio. As we look toward the future, Peregrine will continue to strengthen and protect its IP."

The "Patent Power Scorecard" is an annual benchmarking of company patent portfolios by 1790 Analytics. Companies are ranked on pipeline power—an overall measure of the strength of the patent portfolio that considers both its size and quality. The 2016 Scorecard is based on an analysis of U.S. Patent and Trademark Office records through the end of 2015.
