Who we are and what we do

pSemi is a worldwide business owned by Murata. The UK design centre contains both Power and RF designers and laboratories. As a part of a global company the work for pSemi is varied, interesting and at the very cutting edge of technology.

At pSemi, we design and manufacture innovative semiconductor solutions. We take what “can’t be done” and transform it into an industry first. Whether it is a cutting-edge design technique, a transformative architecture or a novel technology platform, our team explores new ways to make electronics smaller, thinner, faster and more efficient.

Our RF, power management and sensor products are designed into devices that are used by millions of people worldwide. You’ll find our integrated circuits in your smartphone, your cable modem, your laptop and your neighborhood’s new 5G base station.

Headquartered in San Diego, we have offices on three continents and a worldwide sales team to support our customers. Our offices are located in major global tech hubs to support our growing team of talented electrical engineers.

We build intelligent electronics for the connected world.
