RDA Microelectronics Achieves Volume Shipments Of DVB-S Tuners To Samsung Electro-Mechanics

SHANGHAI, China, March 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RDA Microelectronics (Nasdaq:RDA) ("RDA Microelectronics" or the "Company"), a fabless semiconductor company that designs, develops and markets Radio Frequency (RF) and mixed-signal SoC semiconductors for cellular, connectivity and broadcast applications, today announced that it has begun volume shipments of its RDA5815S DVB-S digital satellite tuner to Samsung Electro-Mechanics. The tuner modules are used in set-top boxes sold in emerging markets worldwide, such as India and South America.

Developed on standard CMOS process technology, RDA's DVB-S tuner offers excellent phase noise with very low implementation loss, which is required for advanced modulation systems such as 8PSK and DVB-S2. The tuner RF IC does not require a balun, and its fully integrated design saves valuable board space, simplifies RF layout and reduces the bill of materials. It is ideally suited for set-top box, digital video recorder and digital television applications.

"We are pleased to expand our DVB-S tuner IC relationship with Samsung Electro-Mechanics through this newest product for set-top boxes sold to growing emerging markets," commented Vincent Tai, chairman and CEO of RDA Microelectronics. "This allows us to further increase our geographic penetration in India and South America, while also expanding our non-handset sales in the large and growing set-top box market. We look forward to further developing our relationship with Samsung Electro-Mechanics."
