  • TriQuint Semiconductor, Inc. (TQNT) Introduces Integrated Multi-band, Multi-mode Power Amplifier For Next-Generation Global 3G / 4G Smartphones 0 comments

    TriQuint Semiconductor, a leading RF solutions supplier and technology innovator, announced a new Multi-band, Multi-mode Power Amplifier (MMPA) that simplifies the increasingly complex RF front-end for next-generation global 3G / 4G smartphones and other mobile devices. The compact, high-efficiency MMPA simplifies design, speeds time to market, and delivers more user operating time. Efficiencies include providing up to 15% more browsing time.

    "As LTE networks roll out, next-generation smartphones have to incorporate a growing number of frequency bands. This means device manufacturers must support the rapidly growing RF content within very small form factors - without compromising performance," explained Shane Smith, Vice President of Global Marketing for Mobile Devices. "Our customers confirm that our new TRIUMF TQM7M9053 MMPA is optimized for these demanding applications. This integrated solution consumes 13 percent less PCB space than discrete components and simplifies routing to enhance system performance and time to market."

    "Multimode, multiband PAs mark the rise of a new high-growth segment that will alter the course of the RF components industry," said Christopher Taylor, an analyst with Strategy Analytics. He predicts that the market for MMPAs will reach more than $700 million in 2016. "The biggest opportunity for MMPAs is mid- to high-end smartphones, which use the largest number of bands and modes to ensure availability of voice and data services when roaming."

    Increasing device complexity is driving demand for integrated RF solutions such as MMPAs. TriQuint's highly successful TQM7M9023 is found in some of the world's most sought after smartphones and included on a leading chipset supplier's reference design. The new, second-generation TRIUMF, MMPA TQM7M9053 is drop-in, pin-compatible with the company's TQM7M9023z. TQM7M9053 offers higher efficiency at a lower cost, which already has resulted in several smartphone design wins. This product is now shipping.

    TriQuint Semiconductor is a leading global provider of innovative RF solutions and foundry services for the world's top communications, defense, and aerospace companies. Founded in 1985, the c¬¬ompany seeks to develop products that help reduce the cost and increase the performance of connected mobile devices and the networks that deliver critical voice, data, and video communications. TriQuint creates standard and custom products using gallium arsenide (GaAs), gallium nitride (GaN), surface acoustic wave (SAW), and bulk acoustic wave (BAW) technologies. The company has ISO9001-certified manufacturing facilities in the U.S., production in Costa Rica, and design centers in North America and Germany.
