(Reuters) - Privately held chipmaker Montage Technology Group Ltd raised its offer for Pericom Semiconductor Corp <PSEM.O> to about $442 million, trumping Diodes Inc's <DIOD.O> $413 million offer.

The offer comes a week after Pericom asked shareholders to vote for a merger with Diodes, saying Montage deal lacked committed financing and could face significant regulatory scrutiny.
