Jariet was formed in 2015 as a divestiture of the defense and microwave business of Semtech. The startup is headed by Charles Harper, former Chief Strategy Officer at Semtech and included 34 Semtech employees who transferred from Semtech.
The company’s technology portfolio includes a range of ultra-high-speed analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), digital-to-analog converters (DACs), suitable for direct-sampling RF and microwave transceivers and mixed-signal multi-chip modules.
Jariet offers ADCs and DACs with sampling rates that exceed 100 gigasamples per second. These are suitable for high-bandwidth, multi-band transceiver architectures that are better served with direct-sampling converters.
“Renesas has a strong legacy addressing the evolving wireless market with our patented RF solutions across an array of applications, including massive MIMO and mmWave cellular base stations. In Jariet, we saw a natural synergy with our RF, timing and power technology product lines that will enable Renesas to accelerate development of a complete wideband RF transceiver solution,” said Sailesh Chittipeddi, general manager of the IoT and infrastructure business unit at Renesas. “Gaining access to Jariet’s expansive analog and mixed-signal technology expertise will allow us to field RF front-end reference designs that meet the future requirements of 5G wireless infrastructure and high-performance Satcom applications.”
Charles Harper, CEO of Jariet, said: “This new investment enables us to leverage Renesas’ strong brand and broad customer base. Together, we will bring more compelling RF solutions to a wider range of customers in next-generation communication networks.”
