RFMD opens customer support center in Bangalore

Underscoring its commitment to one of world’s fastest-growing markets for RF semiconductor components, RF Micro Devices Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA has opened a customer support center in Bangalore, India housing applications engineering, customer service, sales management and technical sales.

RFMD says that the center expands its ability to support regional manufacturers in Greater India, who are increasingly developing leading-edge products for wireless and other applications. The available customer base in India spans multiple growth markets, including aerospace and defense, broadband, cellular, WiFi and WiMAX, and wireless infrastructure.

The center demonstrates RFMD’s commitment to providing local support to regional customers in high-value growth markets, says Greg Thompson, VP of sales for the firm’s Multi-Market Products Group. The center will provide product designers in India with real-time access to technical support, as well as assistance to a wide range of customers as they drive greater levels of functional integration in RF applications across multiple growth segments, he adds.

The Indian Semiconductor Association (ISA) forecasts that the semiconductor market in India will grow from $2.7bn in 2007 to $5.5bn in 2009, and increase by 29.9% annually to $36bn by 2015, due mainly to growth in the design, development and consumption of electronic devices.

Since the opening of RFMD’s first office in Taiwan in 2000, RFMD now employs nearly 100 sales, applications engineering and customer service staff working in seven customer support centers throughout Asia.
