Celeritek Seals Deal With "a Major US Handset Maker" (GaAs News)
Celeritek will supply InGaP HBT power amplifier modules to a major US handset manufacturer, believed to be Motorola, for use in developing prototype next-generation handsets capable of CDMA 1X. The modules, CSM2104C and CSM2105C, suit cellular and PCS CDMA and CDMA 1X applications. Celeritek expects production orders in the third quarter of fiscal 2002, and to ramp production up in the fourth quarter. "The use of our Adaptive power amplifier module represents the next step in our strategy to provide the most integrated solutions based upon InGaP HBT technology," said Tamer Husseini, Celeritek's president and chief executive officer. "While it would be premature to estimate the impact of this order on the current year's revenue, we believe this design win is critical for our future growth."
