RFMD® Arms Popular Mobile Devices With Leading WiFi Connectivity Solutions

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 16, 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 that global smartphone and tablet manufacturers designing around the WiLink™ 6.0 and WiLink 7.0 platforms from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE: TXN) can integrate RFMD's RF3482 to gain reliable, flexible WiFi connectivity. Volume shipments of the RF3482 have begun, and RFMD estimates shipments will increase in support of key cellular and consumer device manufacturers.

Bob Van Buskirk, president of RFMD's Multi-Market Products Group (MPG), said, "RFMD is very pleased to support TI across multiple high-volume mobile and embedded consumer programs. The RF3482 delivers high levels of integration and best-in-class solution size while meeting stringent IEEE 802.11b/g/n requirements. RFMD is highly focused on the rapidly expanding WiFi market and expects continued growth, supported by explosive growth in the smartphone, tablet, PC, TV/Video, gaming, automotive, Smart Energy and consumer white goods end markets."

RFMD's RF3482 is a high-performance, single-chip integrated front end module (FEM) for WiFi applications in the 2.4GHz to 2.5GHz ISM band. The RF3482 FEM greatly reduces customers' time-to-market and bill-of-material (BOM) cost by delivering a highly integrated single placement solution. In addition to satisfying smartphone manufacturers' requirements for aggressive size reductions in 802.11b/g/n front end solutions, the RF3482 delivers high linear output power and greatly reduces the number of components outside the core connectivity chipset.

"TI's WiLink 6.0 and WiLink 7.0 platforms are powerful multi-radio solutions able to support a wide range of connectivity requirements for various end equipments. Our customers seek complementary solutions that enhance the WiLink platform's capabilities exhibiting the same dedication to simplified integration and reliability as offered by TI's technologies. RFMD's RF3482 FEM is one such solution that customers can use," said Eran Sandhaus, director of marketing, wireless connectivity solutions, TI.

RFMD's RF3482 is manufactured using the Company's E/D-mode pHEMT fabrication process and is available in a small 3mm x 3mm x 0.45mm 16-pin QFN package. The RF3482 is fully RF-tested, meeting or exceeding the stringent RF front end requirements of 802.11b/g/n systems.
