Paratek Microwave Inc. and STMicroelectronics have partnered to supply RF tunable products to mobile wireless markets. The two companies have been working together to advance the next generation of Paratek's ParaScan materials technology for high-volume manufacturing and to jointly develop tunable products that improve total radiated power for mobile phones. Initial production will take place at STMicroelectronics' fab in Tours, France by the end of the year.

With ST's experience in integrated passive and active devices (IPAD), the companies will implement ParaScan technology into high-quality, high-reliability tunable capacitors. This will allow the implementation of dynamic impedance matching for wireless handsets, which improves power amplifier efficiency and battery life while simultaneously reducing the likelihood of dropped or missed calls.

"The joint product and system development work of the two companies will enable much broader and faster adoption of our tunable system solutions," said Jim DiLorenzo, president and CEO of Paratek.
