RFMD rejoices after 20 years of innovations

The firm is celebrating its gallium arsenide and gallium nitride technology products, which have revolutionised the RF industry

RF Micro Devices, a designer and manufacturer of high-performance radio frequency components and compound semiconductor technologies, will ring the NASDAQ Stock Market Opening Bell on Thursday, August 18, 2011.

The event celebrates RFMD's 20th anniversary and is in recognition of RFMD's 20 years of product and technology leadership in the radio frequency (RF) industry.

RF Micro Devices enjoys a strong record of RF industry "firsts." The company says it was the first to introduce integrated power control for cellular power amplifiers, or PAs, (PowerStar); the first to introduce integrated power management for PAs (PowerSmart); the first to exceed 50% peak efficiency in 3G/4G PAs; the first to commercialise high-performance silicon CMOS for cellular switches; and the first to introduce GaN for CATV amplifier applications.

Bob Bruggeworth, president and CEO of RFMD, said, "It is a pleasure to commemorate RFMD's twentieth anniversary and celebrate RFMD's twenty years of RF product and technology leadership by ringing the NASDAQ opening bell. RFMD is a recognised pioneer and innovator in the semiconductor industry, and our sharp focus on product and technology leadership is equally as evident today — with the continued ramp of multiple industry-leading, new products - as it was with the commercialisation of the world's first GaAs HBT PA."
