RFMD wins TianYu’s Strategic Partner Award for 2007

RF Micro Devices Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA has been awarded one of four Strategic Partner Awards for 2007 presented by Chinese mobile device maker TianYu (with the three others going to suppliers of cellular basebands, camera sensors and LCD panels).

“TianYu greatly appreciates RFMD's ability to deliver products of the highest quality and reliability,” says TianYu’s president Rong Xiuli. “As the leading provider of cellular front ends, RFMD demonstrates a strong commitment to performance, product quality and on-time delivery, all of which are critical metrics to TianYu,” he adds.

“In 2008, we will launch multiple products, including our RF4180 PowerStar dual-band GSM/GPRS transmit module, that lower costs, ease implementation, reduce size and accelerate time-to-market for leading customers such as TianYu,” says Paul Augustine, general manager of RFMD’s Components Solutions business unit.

RFMD says it offers a broad, segmented GSM/GPRS front-end portfolio because the requirements of OEMs and ODMs vary depending on experience, resources and differentiation strategy. The firm’s GSM/GPRS front ends for emerging-market handsets combine high end-product quality with reduced performance variability, resulting in a cost-effective solution for mobile operators.
