TriQuint’s New RF Chipsets Offer Complete Solutions For Wireless Backhaul Microwave Radios

See TriQuint at IEEE IMS / MTT-S, Seattle, Washington, June 4-6

SEATTLE & HILLSBORO, Ore. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 29, 2013TriQuint Semiconductor, Inc. (NASDAQ: TQNT), a leading RF solutions supplier and technology innovator, today introduced 12 new products and highlighted two complete RF chipset families for 15 and 23 GHz point-to-point (PtP) radios serving 3G/4G cellular backhaul and related applications.

TriQuint’s new products include high-performance packaged amplifiers, up-converters / down-converters and voltage controlled oscillators (VCOs) as well as additional devices to support PtP RF requirements from 10-27 GHz. They are released in conjunction with the IEEE IMS / MTT-S convention and exhibition, June 4-6 in Seattle, Washington; see TriQuint in Booth 530.

Mobile network traffic generated by smartphones, tablets and other devices is increasing exponentially, making high-speed solutions that “backhaul” data across wireless networks essential to seamless connectivity. Cisco’s Virtual Networking Index notes that in 2012 global mobile data traffic grew by more than 70% compared to 2011 and predicts that it will grow at an annual rate of 66% through 2017.

James L. Klein, Vice President and General Manager for Infrastructure and Defense Products said, “Point-to-point radio plays a vital role in sustained mobile network growth. TriQuint’s leadership in high frequency solutions now includes complete RF chipsets that simplify design and improve performance.”

Microwave radios linking base stations and central switching hubs provide an excellent backhaul solution. The radios are comparatively easy to install and inexpensive to maintain. Especially at higher microwave and millimeter wave frequencies, they have broad channel bandwidths to enable very-high-speed data throughput.

TriQuint’s new 15 and 23 GHz chipsets provide the OEM a single-source, surface-mount RF solution. These products are offered alongside TriQuint’s larger family of PtP solutions which cover 10-16 GHz and 17-27 GHz.
