Amalfi wins GSA’s 2011 ‘Start-up to Watch’ award

Amalfi Semiconductor of Los Gatos, CA, USA, a fabless firm developing highly integrated CMOS RF and mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs), has been recognized with the 2011 Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA) Start-up to Watch Award at this year’s annual GSA awards banquet.

The GSA award’s committee - consisting of members of the Emerging Company CEO Council, venture capitalists and select serial entrepreneurs in the industry - selected Amalfi as the winner by identifying it as having the highest potential to positively change its market or the semiconductor industry in general through innovative use of semiconductor technology or a new application for semiconductor technology.

“From a business perspective we have eclipsed some significant milestones, recently surpassing 50 million units shipped while seeing a 100% increase in revenues over 2010,” says Amalfi’s CEO Mark Foley. “We would like to thank the GSA Council and venture capitalist community for recognizing our vision, strategy and technology,” he adds.

The award follows the launch in late August of Amalfi’s second-generation AdaptiveRF power amplifier architecture. Leveraging a proprietary CMOS-based linear power amplifier core, AdaptiveRF provides a cost-effective, high-performance platform that extends battery life while decreasing the front-end costs, size and power consumption of cellular handset and data terminal designs, the firm claims.
