RF MICRO DEVICES ANNOUNCES 915 MHZ TRANSCEIVER REFERENCE DESIGN.

RF Micro Devices, Inc. (Nasdaq: RFMD), a provider of proprietary radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs) for wireless communications applications, introduced last week, at the LPRA Radio Solutions 2000 exhibition, the RD0300, a new 915 MHz transceiver reference design based on the RF2905 RFIC.

The RD0300 is designed for developers of low-cost interactive toys, two-way keyless entry systems, wireless security systems, home automation systems and other two-way wireless data or control systems.

Designed to provide an easy-to-use, on/off keyed radio that directly interfaces with logic devices or micro-controllers, the RD0300 is intended for applications at 915 MHz under FCC Parts 15.231 or 15.249 type devices. The design incorporates single conversion heterodyne radio architecture using separate crystals for transmitting and receiving local oscillators. This radio may be used in single- or multi-user networks operating on a single frequency.

The RD0300 is capable of data rates up to 128kbps and operates over 2.7V to 5.0V supply voltages. This design includes a power-down capability and requires a minimum amount of logic signals to send and receive digital data.

RF Micro Devices, Inc., an ISO 9001-certified manufacturer, designs, develops, manufactures and markets proprietary RFICs for wireless communications applications such as cellular and PCS phones, cordless phones, wireless LANs, wireless local loop handsets, industrial radios, wireless security systems and remote meter readers. The company offers a broad array of products -- including amplifiers, mixers, modulators/demodulators, and single-chip receivers, transmitters and transceivers -- representing a substantial majority of the RFICs required in wireless subscriber equipment. The company's strategy is to focus on wireless markets by offering a broad range of standard and custom-designed RFICs in order to position itself as a "one-stop" solution for its customers' RFIC needs. RF Micro Devices, Inc. is traded on the Nasdaq National Market under the symbol RFMD.
