RF Power for Wireless Infrastructure Flat to Slightly Down, but Other Segments Up


RF power semiconductor devices continue to be a nearly US$1.5 billion business (<4 GHz, >3 W) despite the variability with the wireless infrastructure segment. Wireless infrastructure accounts for nearly two-thirds of total revenue and has been flat to slightly up and then slightly down in recent years. The other major segments are:

  • Military/defense
  • Instrumentation/Scientific/Medical (ISM)
  • Broadcast
  • Commercial avionics and air traffic control
  • Non-cellular communications

All are showing solid mid-single-digit growth except for broadcast, which is anemic but still moving upward.
