RF Micro Devices® Press Release - October 13, 2010

Samsung Selects RFMD to Support GALAXY Tab™ Android™ Tablet RFMD's Highly Integrated WiFi Components Combine Small Footprint With Superior Performance

GREENSBORO, N.C., Oct 13, 2010 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX News Network) -- RF Micro Devices, Inc. (Nasdaq:RFMD), a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency components and compound semiconductor technologies, today announced that Samsung has selected three highly integrated RFMD(R) components to deliver superior WiFi connectivity in the recently-introduced GALAXY Tab(TM) Android tablet.

Specifically, RFMD is supplying Samsung with the RF5521 front end module (FEM) for the low-band 2.4 GHz frequency, and the RF5515 low noise amplifier (LNA) and RF5355 power amplifier (PA) for the high-band 5.0 GHz frequency. Volume shipments have begun, and RFMD anticipates increasing WiFi shipments to Samsung -- in mobile tablet devices as well as in smartphones -- as single-band and dual-band design wins ramp into volume production.

With 3G connectivity, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth(R) 3.0, the Samsung GALAXY Tab takes mobile communication to a whole new level. By combining Samsung innovation with the Android OS 2.2, the Tab is truly an always on communication and entertainment tool. Its large battery (4,000 mAh) provides more than 7 hours of movie viewing time and because it's powered by a Cortex A8 1.0GHz application processor, it's designed to deliver high performance.

The RF5521 FEM, RF5515 LNA and RF5355 PA are on a leading WiFi reference design and were selected primarily due their combination of performance, integration and small footprint size. The RF5521 FEM combines a low noise amplifier (LNA) with bypass and a single pole three throw (SP3T) switch. The RF5515 and RF5355 operate in tandem to provide a 5GHz RF front end solution that exceeds competitive performance and price levels while it delivers extended range capability. Each of the components is targeted at high-performance mobile applications using WiFi and Bluetooth(R) combination systems.

Bob Van Buskirk, president of RFMD's Multi-Market Products Group (MPG), said, "We are delighted to support the Samsung GALAXY Tab, and we look forward to growing our WiFi business with Samsung across both smartphones and mobile tablet devices. As we drive to extend our product leadership in a wide range of RF components, our customers can rely on RFMD's ability to deliver highly integrated solutions that provide superior performance in a reduced-size footprint, significantly enhancing the end user's wireless connectivity experience."

The mobile embedded WiFi market is growing at a rapid pace, and dual-band WiFi (2.5GHz/5GHz) is in the early stages of adoption in the expanding market for mobile internet devices (MIDs). RFMD offers a broad portfolio of low-band, high-band, and dual-band components, and the Company expects its mobile WiFi product portfolio to contribute meaningfully to MPG's anticipated revenue growth.
