RFDomus Announces Pre-Production Sampling of Industry's Lowest Power RFIC for Global Positioning Systems

LONG BEACH, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Sept. 14, 2005— RFDomus, Inc., a fabless semiconductor company specializing in advanced, very low power radio frequency (RF) semiconductor devices for the wireless communications marketplace, today announced the availability of pre-production samples of the RFD1400, the industry's lowest power, highest level of integration and smallest footprint RF front-end solution for global positioning systems (GPS).

"With ever increasing levels of adoption of GPS in cellular handsets and portable consumer electronic devices, and the requirement for always-on location tracking in those products, low power consumption is a critical factor in the selection of the GPS RFIC," said Kevin Strong, executive vice president, Business Development, RFDomus, Inc. "The RFD1400's ultra low power consumption, single 1.8V supply, very low external component count, and 4 x 4 mm 24-pin QFN package, make it an ideal choice when low power consumption and small form factor are crucial. We are already collaborating with customers for integration of the RFD1400 into several end products and systems."

Recent industry analyst reports on communications semiconductors have highlighted GPS as a key growth market for wireless semiconductors, with forecasted growth rates in excess of 50% in 2005 and 2006, and a total chipset market of greater than $1 billion in 2006.

Compact, flexible evaluation modules of the RFD1400 are now available, simplifying customers' evaluation and integration of the device into a broad range of cellular handset and portable navigation and consumer electronics devices.

The RFD1400 includes built-in flexibility and programmability to support multiple GPS base band processors and also has the unique capability to output data directly via its standard serial data/control port, simplifying the interface to general-purpose processors and DSPs for enabling emerging software GPS applications.

RFD1400 production devices will be available in volume quantities in Q1 2006.
