February 03, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

IXYS Corp. (Santa Clara, CA) announced that it has reorganized its wholly owned subsidiary, Directed Energy Inc. (DEI), resulting in two divisions, creating a newly formed division called IXYS RF. DEI remains as a wholly owned subsidiary and a division of IXYS. The new division is chartered with developing a new generation of devices, including RF MOSFETs, RF driver ICs, GaAs devices, and RF modules and ICs.

"This is the true meaning of synergy," stated Nathan Zommer, CEO of IXYS. "IXYS RF is the result of a philosophy of entrepreneurial and innovative spirits at IXYS and DEI. We will bring the same creative, unique, industry-leading products to the RF market that IXYS has brought to the power MOSFET market."
