BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RFMD (Nasdaq:RFMD), a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency solutions, today announced it is achieving excellent design success with an expanding portfolio of new power amplifiers (PAs), antenna switch modules and antenna control solutions for the rapidly growing global TD-LTE mobile phone market. Working in close collaboration with leading TD-LTE baseband manufacturers, RFMD is expanding its portfolio of high-performance TD-LTE RF solutions to include multimode, multiband (MMMB) and single-band satellite PAs, transmit modules, antenna switch modules, antenna tuners and impedance tuners.  

Industry analyst firm IDC predicts that shipments of global TD-LTE mobile phones will exceed 220 million units in 2017. IDC expects that shipments of TD-LTE mobile phones will account for nearly one fourth of the world's total 4G mobile phones shipped in 2017.  

"Our strong market position in China and close collaboration with the world's leading TD-LTE chipset manufacturers are contributing to RFMD's product and technology leadership in TD-LTE," said Eric Creviston, president of RFMD's Cellular Products Group. "RFMD is well positioned to target the rapid growth in TD-LTE as we launch new RF solutions with higher levels of integration, expand our content in next-generation devices, and help our customers to launch their TD-LTE devices quickly and cost-effectively."  

RFMD's high performance TD-LTE portfolio includes RF solutions for advanced 5-mode TD-LTE smartphones (including WCDMA, FDD-LTE, TD-SCDMA, and EDGE) and lower cost 3-mode TD-LTE smartphones (including TD-SCDMA and EDGE). The Company's TD-LTE offering includes its RF79XX family of high-performance satellite PAs, RF982x multimode, multiband transmit modules, and RF7378 and RF811x multiband PA modules as well as antenna switch modules,  diversity switches, antenna tuners and impedance tuners.

RFMD is presenting the Company's expanding portfolio of high performance RF solutions for smartphones, tablets, and other broadband mobile devices at the 2014 GSMA Mobile World Congress, held February 24 to February 27, 2014, in Barcelona, Spain.
