LONDON, October 5, 2016
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., founder of RF SOI (silicon on insulator) and pioneer of advanced RF solutions, announces the move of its United Kingdom (UK) team into a larger office facility. Located in Theale, this new office quadruples the working area and laboratory space to better accommodate the UK team’s 90-percent growth since the Murata acquisition in December 2014.
“Our team had outgrown our old facility—both in seating capacity and in lab space to accommodate new product development—and it was time to move into a larger office,” says Mark Moffat, managing director of Peregrine Semiconductor Europe. “Our new ‘home’ not only better suits our current team, but it has the capacity for our projected growth. With a prime location in the Thames Valley, we are able to tap into the abundance of talent in this region and build a team that is driving Peregrine’s growth in areas like 5G and power management.”
Peregrine’s new UK office is located in the heart of the Thames Valley at 1420 Arlington Business Park in Theale, Berkshire. The 4,600-square-foot office includes two fully equipped laboratories.
A global company, Peregrine’s corporate headquarters are in San Diego, California. In addition to the Theale office, Peregrine has offices in Arlington Heights, Illinois; Seongnam-si, South Korea; and Shanghai, China.
