Avago acquires Javelin Semiconductor to develop technology for next gen hybrid GaAs/CMOS RF front-end modules

USA & SINGAPORE: Avago Technologies Ltd, a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, announced that it has acquired Javelin
Semiconductor Inc., an innovator of high performance radio frequency (RF) and mixed signal CMOS integrated circuits for wireless communications.

Based in Austin, Texas, Javelin is a leading developer of high performance 3G CMOS power amplifiers (PAs). The acquisition of Javelin will form the foundation of Avago's RF CMOS design and development for its wireless semiconductor division.

"With Javelin, we will start to develop technology for next generation hybrid GaAs/CMOS front-end modules," said Bryan Ingram, SVP and COO of Avago. "We believe these hybrid modules, leveraging our proprietary FBAR filters, will give Avago a unique opportunity to maintain its leadership position in high performance RF components for the smartphone market."

The acquisition of Javelin is not expected to have a material effect on Avago's financial condition or results of operations in the near term.
