SAN DIEGO -- August 7, 2013

Peregrine Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: PSMI), a fabless provider of
high-performance radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs), and LG
Electronics today announced they have teamed up to develop the
high-performance antenna tuning design solution in the LG Optimus G Pro
smartphone that was recently introduced to the Korean market. The Optimus G
Pro features a 5.5-inch full High Definition (HD) In-Plane Switching (IPS)
display—the largest display available on a LG smartphone—and it is a mere 9.4
mm thick, meeting the growing demand for smartphones with large screens in a
thin-and-slim form factor. Peregrine’s DuNE™ technology optimizes the
performance of the main antenna by bringing the best of what its UltraCMOS^®
and DuNE technologies offer—namely, optimized handset efficiency, data rate,
call integrity, and battery life. By enabling one antenna to more efficiently
cover multiple frequency bands, the DuNE-based tuning solution enables the
Optimus G Pro to support a subset of the more than 40 frequency bands
available with 4G LTE.

“Peregrine is thrilled to announce that we have teamed up with industry giant
LG for their latest offering,” said Dylan Kelly, vice president of Peregrine’s
Mobile Wireless Solutions business unit. “LG continues to develop innovative
products for the premium LTE smartphone market, and the release of the Optimus
G Pro in Korea is the latest example. Teaming up with LG further validates
that Peregrine’s DuNE technology is ideal for 4G LTE smartphones.”
