(Nasdaq:RFMD), a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency components and compound semiconductor technologies, announced today that it is enabling Samsung's next-generation GALAXY Note II with RFMD's PowerSmart® Power Platforms – the industry's first and only converged multimode, multiband (MMMB) power amplifiers.

Bob Bruggeworth, president and CEO of RFMD, said, "We are delighted to support Samsung's next-generation GALAXY Note II as well as numerous other flagship devices in Samsung's exciting product family.
