) considers new product innovations to be one of its prime growth
catalysts. However, the latest product launch on Sep 26 probably
failed to cheer investors' sentiment as the company's shares

Last Thursday, TriQuint introduced its first integrated power
amplifier (PA) solution for small cell and active antenna base
stations. These new amplifiers enable small cell solutions in
expanding 3G/4G wireless broadband access including Long Term
Evolution (LTE). These highly integrated power amplifier
solutions reduce the board size and deliver higher efficiency.
The radio transceivers in this small cell radio system are
smaller by design to support indoor or outdoor deployment. By
reducing 50% of board space, the original equipment manufacturers
(OEMs) can reduce the size of radio systems and their bills of
materials. According to a wireless research company, the overall
LTE outdoor microcell market is expected to begin high volume
shipments in 2014 and is likely to reach $1.8 billion by 2017.
Headquartered in Hillsboro, Ore., TriQuint manufactures
semiconductors for the wireless handset segment, infrastructure
networks and defense markets. TriQuint's products reduce costs
and increase the performance of connected mobile devices and
networks that deliver critical voice, data and video
communications. In the last quarter, Triquint reported revenues
of $190.1 million, up 7% year over year, driven by strong
performance across all markets.
