RFMD Announces Selex Compound Semiconductor Collaboration

RFMD to develop new GaAs MMIC electronically-scanned phased array radar system.
RF Micro Devices (RFMD) has announced an extension to their partnership with Selex Galileo to develop a new high-frequency GaAs MMIC electronically-scanned phased array radar system.

The two companies have been working together on the project since May 2008. However, the scheme is about to get into a production phase and as such, each of the businesses is now looking forward to continuing collaboration to get the product to market.

Jeff Shealy, vice-president and general manager of RFMD s Defense and Power business unit, said: "We are pleased to support Selex Galileo s high-frequency GaAs requirements using our GaAs technical expertise and high volume commercial wafer fab."

RFMD is set to manufacture the high-frequency GaAs MMIC compound semiconductors on six-inch substrates at its UK-based high-volume GaAs wafer fabrication plant in Durham.

The company is traded on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the symbol RFMD and presently has a share price of $4.21 (£2.81 - Feb 26th, 16:01 EST).
