“Flip is always looking for new ways to make a difference for our suppliers and customers. This strategic agreement is a perfect example. Ampleon is an outstanding brand within the RF power industry. Adding a premier RF supplier to our expanding portfolio of who’s who in the semiconductor industry broadens our ability to support the long-term needs of our mutual customers. Uninterrupted manufacturing of Ampleon’s portfolio will enable us to support customers for the next 20+ years. Our customers can also be assured that the products will be certified and guaranteed by Flip Electronics and 100% authorized by the original manufacturer, Ampleon,” said Jason Murphy, CEO of Flip Electronics.

“We chose to transfer Ampleon’s LDMOS portfolio to Flip Electronics because they have been very successful in extending the lifecycle of semiconductors through inventory acquisition, wafer procurement and licensing IP from original manufacturers. Flip Electronics’ ability to continue manufacturing our legacy parts is a paramount asset. We are very confident in Flip’s commitment to ensuring our clients have long-term access to Ampleon legacy products,” said Vincent Gerritsma, CEO of Ampleon.
