RFMD® Unveils Portfolio Of Cellular Front End Modules For 3G/4G Switch And Signal Conditioning Applications

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- RF Micro Devices, Inc. (Nasdaq: RFMD), a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency components and compound semiconductor technologies, today announced the addition of four new products to RFMD's expanding portfolio of front end modules for 3G/4G switch and signal conditioning applications.

RFMD's switch and signal conditioning product portfolio includes antenna switch modules, switch filter modules, switch duplexer modules, RF power management components, and low noise amplifiers. The four newly introduced products – the RF8889A, the RF1291, the RF1194A, and the RF1196 – are each optimized to solve the complex RF requirements of 3G/4G smartphones related to high band count and harmonics.

Eric Creviston, president of RFMD's Cellular Products Group (CPG), said, "RFMD's highly integrated, high-performance cellular front end modules solve our customers' increasingly complex RF requirements and deliver unmatched ease-of-use benefits related to size, performance and platform flexibility by offering ascending levels of switch, filter and duplexer functionality within a single module. Importantly, our expanding portfolio of antenna switch modules, switch filter modules and switch duplexer modules is highly complementary to all of our power platforms and provide our customers a single scalable source for the entire cellular front end."

The RF8889A and RF1291 single-pole 10 throw (SP10T) antenna switch modules (ASMs) deliver industry-leading linearity performance and excellent insertion loss for high-throw count applications and are compatible with reference designs from Qualcomm, Intel and ST-Ericsson. The RF8889A and RF1291 are specifically targeted at smartphone applications in which the coexistence requirements of multiple radio standards (GSM/WCDMA/LTE/WiFi/ Bluetooth®) place critical importance on switch linearity and harmonic performance.

The RF1194A switch filter module (SFM) delivers the linearity and insertion loss performance of the RF8889A and RF1291 ASMs and expands upon their functionality by adding GSM Rx SAW filters. The RF1196 switch duplexer module (SDM) delivers the switch and filter capabilities of RFMD's ASMs and SFMs and expands upon their functionality by integrating a WCDMA band 1 duplexer. The RF1196 is first in a family of RFMD SDM products that significantly reduce total solution size by delivering complete front end integration of all switch and filter requirements in a single front end module.
