The RF Duplexer Market For Cellular Terminals Will Reach $2.5 Billion In 2016, Driven By The Growth Of WCDMA And Deployment Of LTE Networks. (Source: Navian Inc.) (Graphic: Business Wire)

TriQuint Semiconductor, Inc. (NASDAQ:TQNT), a leading RF solutions supplier and technology innovator, has gained design wins for its new high-performance acoustic wave filters in sought-after 4G smartphones from manufacturers including Samsung, LG, HTC and Motorola Mobility. Now shipping in volume, the new filters leverage the company’s broad technology portfolio to deliver the superior filter performance required for the most challenging LTE frequency bands.

LTE deployments are driving demand for high-performance filters in today’s multiband smartphones. High-end smartphones house a growing number of cellular and Wi-Fi bands to support 2G/3G/4G voice and data services, as well as global roaming. In addition, the global spectrum crunch is leading governments around the world to squeeze new bands for 4G wireless services next to pre-existing bands, often with minimal guard bands. Advanced filter technology is needed to mitigate the resulting interference issues.

“Our customers count on TriQuint to solve their toughest filtering challenges,” said Tim Dunn, Vice President of Mobile Devices. “We’ve achieved significant advancements in acoustic wave technology, thanks to three decades of filter innovation and our extensive manufacturing expertise. We’re one of the very few high-volume suppliers that can meet the demanding performance requirements for the most stringent LTE filter bands. In the years ahead, deployments of next-generation LTE Advanced will spur even more demand for TriQuint’s high-performance filters to reap the benefits of carrier aggregation.”

Filters, duplexers and switches already account for nearly half of the total $6.4 billion RF market*. As LTE networks continue to deploy, passive content in smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices will continue to grow. “TriQuint is well positioned to win more business in this important market segment — with our technology leadership, unmatched integration expertise, chipset reference designs and continuing investments in capacity,” Dunn stated. TriQuint increased manufacturing capacity by 40 percent in 2011 to support customer demand for its growing mobile device portfolio.
