RFMD’s 2G Transmit Modules reach 100 million unit shipments milestone

Radio-frequency microelectronic component maker RF Micro Devices Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA says it has surpassed 100 million units in cumulative shipments of its RF71xx family of 2G dual-band and quad-band transmit modules. The milestone was achieved in less than one year of production shipments, positioning the RF71xx product family among RFMD's all-time most successful product launches.

Eric Creviston, president of RFMD's Cellular Products Group (CPG), said, "The rapid success of the RF71xx family of transmit modules highlights RFMD's sharp focus on product leadership and the strength of our customer diversification efforts, particularly among handset manufacturers in Asia. RFMD continues to develop new product derivatives of the RF71xx family, and we expect ongoing design win activity and market share gains in emerging markets across handset manufacturers and global platform providers."

Each product in the RF71xx product family is designed to meet the front end requirements of emerging market handsets, including reduced solution size, improved efficiency and robust ESD protection. RFMD's RF71xx transmit modules are pin-to-pin compatible across the entire product family, enabling customers to produce dual-band, tri-band or quad-band GPRS or EDGE handsets from a single handset platform, an industry first says the firm.
