RF Power Semiconductor Device Sales for Wireless Infrastructure Tops $1B in 2014


Reading time ( words)

Just when the industry thought that things were pretty good in 2013, RF Power Semiconductors for Wireless Infrastructure blew off the charts in 2014. China and the Asia-Pacific region in general continues to be the main driver for the RF Power Semiconductor devices that are sold into the mobile wireless infrastructure segment. According to ABI Research’s Research Director Lance Wilson, “Again, for the foreseeable future the Asia-Pacific region, especially China, will dominate this market and remain the most important region and focus for high-power RF devices for wireless infrastructure.”

LTE and TD-LTE air interfaces will be the technology engines of growth for the next 5 years. Although GaN (Gallium Nitride) devices had meaningful share, 2014 was all about Silicon LDMOS which continues to dominate this segment by a large margin. The increasing and critical need for wireless data remains an important driver for the overall market for RF power semiconductor devices.

RF Power Semiconductor Devices for Mobile and Wireless Infrastructure, an ABI Research report, examines evolving design parameters and materials, price versus performance and the interdependent relationship of RF power semiconductors to RF Power Amplifiers. In depth quantitative forecasts are also presented through 2020.

My View from CES 2021: Day 1

01/12/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.

CES 2021: Just How Different Will It Be?

01/11/2021 | Dan Feinberg, I-Connect007
CES 2021 starts today and this year there is no need for an overpriced hotel room in Vegas, no long lines to get a taxi or board a bus, and no crowded exhibit halls (one good thing this year). On the other hand, you must decide ahead of time what you want to see and make a reservation or appointment if you wish to have time and access assured.

CES 2020: The Intelligence of Things

01/06/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Show week for CES 2020 starts well ahead of the actual exhibition dates because it is huge. The organizers of CES state that there are more than 4,400 exhibiting companies and nearly three million net square feet of exhibit space. On the floor, you can find 307 of the 2018 Fortune Global 500 companies. Over the week, I-Connect007 Editors Dan Feinberg and Nolan Johnson will bring you some of the most interesting news, products, and announcements from 5G to IoT, semiconductor developments, autonomous vehicle technology, interconnect, fabrication materials, and much more.
