TriQuint Introduces First 802.11ac Wi-Fi RF Module for Next-Generation
Smartphones and Tablets

Enables Greater Range and Performance for Video Streaming and Other Demanding
Multimedia Applications

HILLSBORO, Ore., Jun 14, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- TriQuint Semiconductor, Inc.
(TQNT), a leading RF solutions supplier and technology innovator, has introduced
the industry's first 802.11ac Wi-Fi RF module for next-generation mobile devices.
In addition to supporting faster download speeds, TriQuint's TriConnect(TM)
TQP6M9017 high-performance WLAN module improves the wireless experience by
enabling connectivity from greater distances; it allows nearly 60% further range
than its award-winning predecessor, thanks to advances in output power

As demand for Wi-Fi proliferates worldwide, consumers have developed an
ever-growing appetite for faster mobile data rates to support video streaming and
other multimedia applications. With data rates up to 1.3 gigabits per second, the
new IEEE 802.11ac standard will deliver transfer rates three to four times faster
than current-generation 802.11n Wi-Fi. In-Stat predicts one billion devices with
802.11ac technology will ship by 2015.

"TriQuint is at the forefront of technology with the first 802.11ac-ready module
for mobile devices. A major manufacturer has selected our new high-performance
TriConnect(TM) component for its next-generation smartphone, and it's also
included on a reference design by a leading chipset supplier," said Shane Smith,
Vice President of Global Marketing for Mobile Devices at TriQuint. "Our 802.11ac
technology expertise also expands our future market opportunity for infotainment
applications such as in-home video distribution."

TriQuint's TriConnect TQP6M9017 is a highly integrated, dual-band WLAN module
that provides a complete solution for 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
applications, thus simplifying RF design for device manufacturers. It integrates
two power amplifiers for the 2.4 and 5 GHz frequency bands with a switch,
filtering, baluns and other components -- all in an ultra small 4x4mm package.

Benefits of TriQuint's TriConnect(TM) 802.11ac Mobile Solution

TriQuint's integrated WLAN solutions take up less PCB space for mobile device
manufacturers, while providing several performance advantages over competitive

-- Increased Operating Range -- Better amplification of weak signals extends
wireless connectivity over greater distances; offers as much as 2dB higher power
output than the previous generation

-- Better Efficiency -- Extended battery life means more hours of untethered
Wi-Fi connectivity for today's multi-tasking, on-the-go lifestyles

-- Faster Connectivity -- Rapid data transfers enable faster downloads, providing
a more enjoyable consumer experience for video streaming and other data-intensive

The new TriConnect TQP6M9017 leverages the integration expertise and superior
performance that has fueled TriQuint's success in mobile devices. The company's
award-winning WLAN modules are found in smartphones and tablets from many of the
world's leading manufacturers. TriQuint has shipped nearly 300 million Wi-Fi
modules since 2009, and nearly doubled its WLAN revenues from 2010 to 2011.
TriQuint's TQP6M9002 dual-band Wi-Fi power amplifier -- the predecessor to the
TQP6M9017 -- was named the 2011 Best Product in the networks and
telecommunications category by Application of Electronic Techniques (AET) in

The TriConnect TQP6M9017 utilizes TriQuint's E/D pHEMT and HBT technologies to
integrate active and passive components into a compact, high-performance module.
Volume production of the dual-band component is planned next month. Visit
TriQuint in Booth 1815 at the 2012 IMS MTT-S Symposium in Montreal on June 17-22
for more information about the company's connectivity products. To locate one of
