Although 2012 turned out to be an off year for RF power amplifiers and devices for wireless infrastructure, the market still held its own, notes ABI Research. Despite the off year RF power amplifier sales for wireless infrastructure will top $2.4B and RF power device sales will be over $600M. The Asia-Pacific region continues to account for more than 75 percent of the RF power semiconductor devices sold into the mobile wireless infrastructure segment. LTE will become an increasingly important factor in this business, even though the rollout has not been as rapid as the industry would like. “Although LTE has not significantly impacted RF power amplifier and device sales as of yet,” says Research Director Lance Wilson, “it is going to bolster RF power sales in the wireless infrastructure space from 2012 on.”
