PSemi Recognised For Patent Power Scorecard
Murata company ranks among top ten semiconductor manufacturers on Patent Power 2017
pSemi (formerly known as Peregrine Semiconductor), a Murata company, has announced its ranking for the second consecutive year on the 'IEEE Spectrum' Patent Power Scorecard.
This annually published benchmark identifies the technology world's most valuable patent portfolios and ranks the companies by a Pipeline Power score.
The 2017 Scorecard is based on an analysis of US Patent and Trademark Office records through the end of 2016. Other organisations on the 2017 scorecard include Amazon, Google, Apple, Qualcomm, Intel, Microsoft, Samsung and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
The 2017 scorecard ranks the pSemi patent portfolio among the top ten in the semiconductor manufacturing sector compared to giants in the processor, memory and fabrication areas. pSemi leads peer companies in the wireless connectivity space.
The pSemi patent portfolio now exceeds 500 issued and pending patents and continues to aggressively grow. Last week, pSemi announced its corporate name change from Peregrine Semiconductor to pSemi and celebrated its 30-year anniversary of semiconductor technology innovation.
"pSemi is honoured to be recognised for the second year by the Patent Power Scorecard," says Dan Nobbe, vice president of corporate research and intellectual property (IP) development at pSemi.
"Our top 10 ranking within semiconductor manufacturers demonstrates our team's commitment to innovation and our patent portfolio's strength. Though we are excited to surpass the 500-patent-filings milestone within our portfolio, we are even more proud of the quality of our patents. It is a testament to our forward-thinking engineers and the groundbreaking role our team has played in advancing semiconductor technology for the last 30 years."
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.
