Analog Devices to acquire Hittite Microwave Corporation

Published: 10th June 2014

Hittite Microwave Corporation and Analog Devices (ADI) have entered into a definitive agreement for ADI to acquire Hittite, with the purchase due to be completed by late July.

By combining both companies’ portfolios and expertise, ADI will be providing technology which covers the entire frequency spectrum including RF, microwave, and millimeter wave.

The acquisition offers the opportunity for expansion into microwave and millimeter wave frequencies – technologies where Hittite specializes. ADI offers Hittite access to its complementary portfolio of parts, established distribution network, world-class supply chain systems, partners, and practices.

Both Hittite and Analog Devices are confident that customers will see significant benefits from this creation of an integrated supplier for all their RF needs.

Until completion of the acquisition, Hittite customers should conduct business as usual through MCS Test Equipment. After completion, MCS will notify all our existing Hittite customers of any new procedures, including order-related logistics, shipping and billing instructions, and contract transfers.

More information on the acquisition can be found on the Analog Devices website.
