RFMD Assembles 100 Millionth Module in Its Beijing Facility; Company On Track To Double Its Assembly Capacity In Beijing

Beijing, China–RFMD, a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio systems and solutions for applications that drive mobile communications, announced today that it has assembled its 100 millionth module in its Beijing, China, assembly facility. The Company attributes the assembly milestone to continued strong sales of its industry-leading portfolio of cellular power amplifiers. Bob Bruggeworth, president and CEO of RFMD, made the announcement while touring the Company’s Beijing facility. Bruggeworth stated, “Our power amplifiers are found in approximately one half of the world’s phones, and our customers include all of the world’s major handset manufacturers. We are particularly focused on supporting the growing presence of handset manufacturers in Asia, and we are committed to increasing our manufacturing capabilities in Asia as the region continues to evolve as the handset industry’s manufacturing center.”

RFMD is increasing its assembly capacity in its Beijing facility by approximately 100% in response to a robust handset market and continued strong demand for its module products. The Company is also expanding its Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) manufacturing capacity in its Greensboro, North Carolina, GaAs fabrication facility and expects to increase total GaAs wafer capacity by approximately 40%. The Company plans to complete both capacity expansions by the December 2006 quarter.
