Across the globe and billions of times a day, we rely on mobile devices. Achieving seamless, high-quality and high-speed wireless connectivity that links people, business and things while keeping pace with growing demands for access to data—all types, all the time, from anywhere—requires more innovation with each generation of device.
Our RF, power management and application / baseband processor technologies are enabling industry leaders to shape the mobile computing landscape and bring increasingly sophisticated mobile devices to market.
Mobile devices continue to be a solid growth engine for the semiconductor industry, with a “smarter” device mix, more data traffic demanding increasingly higher performance and greater RF complexity driving more RF content.
