TriQuint Announces New HADRON PA Module(TM): New Edge Module Optimized to QUALCOMM Enhanced Multimedia Platform of Chipsets

BARCELONA, Spain & HILLSBORO, Ore.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—February 12, 2007— TriQuint Semiconductor (Nasdaq: TQNT), a leading manufacturer of RF front-end modules for wireless handsets, today announced the release of its newest product in the HADRON PA Module(TM) family: a quad-band GSM/EDGE-Polar power amplifier module (PAM), the TQM7M5008. The new product is a key member of TriQuint's 2007 "Global Handset Strategy" announced February 1st and is compatible with QUALCOMM's Mobile Station Modem(TM) (MSM(TM)) chipsets. The new module will be displayed at the GSM World Congress in Barcelona, Spain (12th-15th Feb. 2007) and provides the market's best GSM/GPRS and EDGE efficiency in an industry-standard 7x7mm footprint. The TQM7M5008 is modeled on the company's successful TQM7M5003 module already in worldwide usage.

The TQM7M5008 power amplifier module is a next-generation design supporting QUALCOMM's newest 3G multimode transceivers. It offers best-in-class amplitude and phase modulation performance, which provides a handset with fast calibration time. This in turn reduces manufacturing time. The new module supports TriQuint's continuing strategy to supply customers with high-performance products optimized to major transceiver reference designs that speed time-to-market and extend battery life.

"The superior modulation performance of TriQuint's Polar PAMs over temperature, battery voltage and ageing provides a robust system solution in conjunction with QUALCOMM's 3G multimode transceivers," said TriQuint's Strategic Marketing Manager for Handsets, Paul Cooper. "The TQM7M5008 is the latest TriQuint innovation compatible with QUALCOMM chipsets. It offers many advancements including a lower Rx Band noise contribution, optimized input power range and a broadband matching network."

TriQuint's new TQM7M5008 is designed for GSM/EDGE wireless handsets and data cards in the GSM 850/900/1800/1900 bands. It supports both class 12 GPRS mode and EDGE polar mode.

"We are pleased to offer our customers yet another solution that builds on the success of our world-class Polar PA engine," Cooper remarked. "This new product is a strong contender for next-generation EDGE solutions in 3G WCDMA systems."

TriQuint's latest addition to its HADRON PA Module(TM) family complements a full line of GSM/EDGE and WCDMA products for current and next-generation wireless handsets as well as Bluetooth(R) PAs and filters. See TriQuint's newest module at the company's GSM World Congress exhibition (Hall 2, Level 1, Space D22) in Barcelona, Spain (12th-15th February 2007). The GSM World Congress is the largest convention and exhibition dedicated to GSM wireless communications, now with more than 2.6 billion global subscribers.
