RFMD receives first production orders for PowerSmart power platforms

RF Micro Devices Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA has received the first volume production orders for its PowerSmart power platforms. The orders are in support of a highly anticipated smartphone and tablet product family to be launched by a ‘leading cellular handset manufacturer’, beginning in the March quarter.

“RFMD’s PowerSmart power platforms are a new product category reshaping the future of multimode, multi-band cellular RF architectures,” says Eric Creviston, president of RFMD’s cellular products group (CPG). “PowerSmart power platforms feature a revolutionary new RF Configurable Power Core that delivers multiband, multi-mode coverage of all cellular communications modulation schemes, including 2G, 3G and 4G, up to LTE 64QAM,” he adds.

In addition to the RF Configurable Power Core, which performs all power amplification and power management functionality, RFMD’s PowerSmart power platforms include all necessary switching and signal conditioning functionality in a compact reference design, providing smartphone makers with a single scalable source for the entire cellular front end.

RFMD expects to start volume shipments of PowerSmart in this quarter, with sequential growth anticipated in the June quarter.
