“We reported a solid third quarter as we continue to execute our long-term strategic R&D roadmap. This week we will achieve a key milestone with the launch of UltraCMOS 10, the latest advance of our technology platform, moving us to the 130nm technology node and 200mm wafers. This was achieved through our new development and foundry partnership with GLOBALFOUNDRIES,” commented Jim Cable, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The wireless operators continue to increase the radio requirements to support LTE and LTE-Advanced networks, and this industry trend favors Peregrine as we are able to provide the truly differentiated performance needed for the carrier aggregation elements of LTE-Advanced. Despite the impact of near-term shifts in smartphone market seasonality, we are advancing our capabilities and building a technology platform with significant strategic value, and I believe the full value of our expertise will become apparent with time."
