TriQuint Introduces Integrated Multi-band, Multi-mode Power Amplifier for
Next-Gen Global 3G / 4G Smartphones

The compact, high-efficiency MMPA simplifies design, speeds time to market and
delivers more user operating time

HILLSBORO, Ore., Sep 20, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- TriQuint Semiconductor, Inc.
(TQNT), a leading RF solutions supplier and technology innovator, today announced
a new Multi-band, Multi-mode Power Amplifier (MMPA) that simplifies the
increasingly complex RF front-end for next-generation global 3G / 4G smartphones
and other mobile devices. The compact, highly integrated TRIUMF(TM) MMPA achieves
best-in-class power-added efficiency, providing up to 15 percent more browsing

"As LTE networks roll out, next-generation smartphones have to incorporate a
growing number of frequency bands. This means device manufacturers must support
the rapidly growing RF content within very small form factors -- without
compromising performance," explained Shane Smith, Vice President of Global
Marketing for Mobile Devices. "Our customers confirm that our new TRIUMF
TQM7M9053 MMPA is optimized for these demanding applications. This integrated
solution consumes 13 percent less PCB space than discrete components and
simplifies routing to enhance system performance and time to market."

Increasing device complexity is driving demand for integrated RF solutions such
as MMPAs. "Multimode, multiband PAs mark the rise of a new high-growth segment
that will alter the course of the RF components industry," said Christopher
Taylor, an analyst with Strategy Analytics. He predicts that the market for MMPAs
will reach more than $700 million in 2016. "The biggest opportunity for MMPAs is
mid- to high-end smartphones, which use the largest number of bands and modes to
ensure availability of voice and data services when roaming."

TriQuint's new second-generation TRIUMF(TM) MMPA TQM7M9053 is drop-in,
pin-compatible with the company's highly successful TQM7M9023 MMPA, which is
found in some of the world's most sought after smartphones and included on a
leading chipset supplier's reference design. TriQuint's new TQM7M9053 offers
higher efficiency at a lower cost, which already has resulted in several
smartphone design wins.

The versatile 5 x 7.5mm TQM7M9053 is a fully matched MMPA that offers quad-band
GSM/EDGE and WCDMA/LTE bands 1, 2, 5 and 8 to support the 3G/4G market in North
America, Europe and Asia. The company's family of TRIUMF(TM) MMPAs combines with
TriQuint's SAW and BAW filters to deliver a complete RF front-end solution for
smartphones and other mobile devices.

The TQM7M9053 TRIUMF(TM) MMPA is shipping now. For more information, contact
