RF Micro Devices Inc. (RFMD) announced that its RF3159 quad-band linear EDGE power amplifier (PA) module is supporting Samsung's E250 EDGE handset.

The RF3159 is a high-linearity quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE PA designed to support EDGE transceivers using a linear transmit architecture. Designed to be the final amplification stage in a dual-mode GSM/GPRS/EDGE mobile transmit lineup, the product's gain and linearity lineups enable handset manufacturers to optimize the transmit chain to meet varying implementations of linearity, efficiency and output power.

The Samsung E250 provides consumers advanced multimedia functionality in a sleek, compact design and features a VGA camera, MP3 player, advanced audio distribution profile (A2DP) stereo Bluetooth capability, and a vivid 2.0-inch color screen.

"We look forward to supporting Samsung with our industry-leading EDGE power amplifiers in future EDGE and 3G multimode handsets," said Konrad Alvarino, general manager, components business unit at RFMD.

The company anticipates additional tier-one EDGE handsets will feature its linear EDGE PA modules this year.
