The Austin development center includes laboratory and office space and is staffed with 13 experienced RFIC developers. It is looking to expand further.
"Austin is one of the few hot beds for IC development, and it has been on our radar for several years as a location with a high potential for expansion," says Dylan Kelly, vice president and general manager of Peregrine's mobile wireless solutions business unit. "Peregrine is extremely fortunate to be able to open an office in the region and immediately staff it with the region's top talent. Our new Austin team members are experts in their field with the added benefit of having worked together as a proven team for the last nine years. This new Austin development center will strengthen Peregrine's position as a proven leader in RF and analog IC development."
The Austin office will be led by 25-year industry veteran, David Bockelman. Most recently, David served as the Senior R&D Manager at Avago Technologies/ Broadcom and was previously the Vice President of Engineering at Javelin Semiconductor.
