Amalfi ships 100 millionth CMOS power amplifier; opens Asia office in Shanghai

Amalfi Semiconductor of Los Gatos, CA, USA, a fabless semiconductor firm specializing in highly integrated CMOS silicon RF and mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs), says that it has now shipped more than 100 million CMOS power amplifiers.

“Shipping more than 100 million transmit modules highlights not only our capacity to bring to market high-quality CMOS power amplifiers in volume, but also our ability to translate strong global demand into new business,” says CEO & president Mark Foley. “Current forecasts predict Amalfi will ship more than 150 million units by the end of the year,” he adds. “All of these developments underscore the fact that we are quickly gaining significant share in the worldwide mobile phone market.”

The firm began shipping its family of CMOS 2G GSM/GPRS transmit module (TxM) integrated circuits (IC) in 2009. In August 2011, it launched its second-generation AdaptiveRF architecture, which is designed to deliver performance at competitive costs compared to traditional GaAs-based modules.

The firm has also opened an office in Shanghai to expand its product development efforts and to offer extended services for local businesses and customers across Asia. The office will provide sales, customer applications, corporate applications and engineering design functions.

“We are making a significant investment with our new facility in China, which will allow us to offer the highest level of service to our customers, while exploring new, lucrative markets throughout Asia,” says Foley.
