To further strengthen its presence in Greater China's cellphone market, RF Micro Devices Inc. (RFMD) opened its new customer support center in Shanghai, China.

The new center will expand support for RFMD's wireless customers throughout the region by complementing the company's operations in Beijing and Shenzhen, China and Taipei, Taiwan. The Shanghai facility, which houses technical sales, sales management, application support and customer support, will enable RFMD to better support the regional manufacturers in the development handset technology for cellphone providers.

"RFMD's continued expansion into the Greater China market demonstrates our focus on supporting the local handset manufacturers in this territory," said Greg Thompson, RFMD VP of worldwide sales and applications. "This new location will expand and strengthen our technical and systems support, while helping to advance the integration of complementary radio functions and applications in cellular handset designs."

According to industry forecasts, over 960 million handsets will ship in 2006, and over a billion are expected to ship in 2007. Besides the new customer support center, RFMD's investment in the Greater China market includes a sales and support center in Taiwan, sales and support center in Shenzhen, and a module assembly facility and test and tape and reel facility in Beijing. RFMD employs over 900 people in Greater China.
