[China GrenTech to supply Datang with 2,000 TD-SCDMA base station RF power amplifier modules.]
Shenzhen, China -- China GrenTech Corporation Limited, a leading China-based wireless coverage products and services provider and radio frequency technology developer, today announced that it has signed a contract to supply 2,000 sets of TD-SCDMA base station RF power amplifier modules to Datang Mobile Communications Equipment Co., Ltd.
The TD-SCDMA base station RF power amplifier module is the most important RF component in TD-SCDMA base station. The bulk supply of power amplifier modules to Datang Mobile is the TD-SCDMA TRB 2W module, our independently developed active module customized for Datang Mobile's TD-SCDMA base station. Following the bulk production of passive RF modules for several base station manufacturers, this is the Company's first formal supply of TD-SCDMA active RF modules in bulk to base station OEMs. Active RF modules mainly refer to Power Amplifier modules that are used to amplify electromagnetic waves. Compared to passive RF modules, such as filters and duplexers, the development of Power Amplifier modules requires more advanced technology.
"GrenTech has accumulated ample experience in research and development of RF products through our dedication to RF technology over the years. We now have many technology patents, including our low-cost technology patent, which not only enables us to maintain our RF technology leadership, but also helps us to effectively reduce our production costs and generate a greater margin advantage," stated Mr. Yingjie Gao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of GrenTech. "Demand for RF products is rapidly increasing, as global telecommunication equipment manufacturers look to source base station RF products mainly in China. The large market demand brings greater growth potential to those RF product suppliers, who have strong capabilities and comparative advantages, such as GrenTech. Currently, we supply base station RF products in bulk to five large base station manufacturers."
Mr. Gao continued, "We believe our cooperation with large communication equipment manufacturers, especially Datang Mobile, the founder in TD-SCDMA protocol in China, will further strengthen our position in TD-SCDMA base station RF technology and products, while helping us to expand the active RF modules market."
