PSemi Recognised For Patent Power Scorecard

News

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.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
