TriQuint Semiconductor Inc. announced it has shipped 5 million integrated Quantum Tx Modules for use in Vodafone's ultralow-cost handsets (ULCH). Vodafone models 125 and 225, designed and manufactured by ZTE Corp., are targeted at markets where simple wireless phones can provide an affordable means for consumers to become connected, often for the first time.

In its recent report on ULCH, ABI Research estimated that more than 330 million of these devices will be shipped globally by 2011, or one in every four mobile handsets shipped worldwide.

"The market is evolving in multiple directions and our global handset strategy serves the continuum of needs," said Tim Dunn, VP for handsets at TriQuint.

In the six-month period since April 2007, TriQuint has shipped 5 million of its these modules to ZTE, one of China's handset ODMs. Vodafone Egypt, Vodafone Romania and Vodacom, a cellular network in South Africa, were the first to launch Vodafone models 125 and 225.

TriQuint's TQM6M4028E Quantum Tx Module covers both GSM900 and DCS phone bands for the European and Asian markets. The highly integrated module features two power amplifier ICs, two low pass filters, a CMOS controller and a single-pole four-throw RF switch in a 6mm x 6mm package. The integrated CMOS power controller of the two power amplifier ICs contribute to increased phone talk times for these mobile handset designs. The TQM6M4028E module accepts a variety of battery and power supply configurations, and like all other TriQuint handset parts, is RoHS-compliant.
