Jazz Semiconductor and RF Micro Devices Inc. have entered into an arrangement in which the latter will obtain a guaranteed, lower cost source of supply for wafers fabricated utilizing Jazz's manufacturing processes, including SiGe, bipolar complementary metal oxide semiconductor (BiCMOS), and RF CMOS.

In addition, RFMD will collaborate with Jazz on the development of wireless technology roadmaps, including joint process development and the optimization of these processes for fabrication of next-generation silicon RFICs. These arrangements are expected to help RF Micro develop proprietary mixed-mode silicon technologies for its SoC integration roadmap.

RF Micro has also agreed to invest $60 million in Jazz for a minority equity position in the company.
