RDA Microelectronics Announces Sampling of EDGE Smartphone Baseband

Shanghai, China -- RDA Microelectronics, Inc. (RDA) (the "Company"), a fabless semiconductor company that designs, develops and markets wireless systems-on-chip and radio-frequency semiconductors for cellular, connectivity and broadcast applications, today announced the sampling of its RDA8810 EDGE baseband smartphone solution.

The RDA8810 integrates the RF transceiver, EDGE modem, 1 GHz A5 applications processor, power management unit, analog baseband, and even the 32kHz oscillator, all onto one 40 nanometer SoC. Competitive offerings require up to three dies and two to three chips for the RF functions, application processor and baseband, greatly reducing functionality while increasing the bill of materials. Additionally, the 8810 supports 400MHz 32-bit LPDDR2, which supplies 3.2GB/s of memory bandwidth. With a dedicated hardware video processor, the 8810 also supports 1080p H.264 video playback at 30fps as well as high-end graphic performance for graphical user interface (GUI) and online games. It also supports WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS connections through peripheral interfaces. Since the EDGE modem sub-system has its own CPU, accelerator and memory, it does not diminish the performance of the application processor. The RDA8810 supports Android 4.0 OS and above.

"We are pleased with the progress we have made with sampling our 8810 product, and the feedback from our customers is meeting our expectations. We further believe that the introduction of our EDGE smartphone baseband is a key milestone for RDA as it greatly expands our addressable market," said Vincent Tai, chairman and CEO of RDA Microelectronics.

"In addition to the smartphone market, the 8810 EDGE product family was also designed for the fast growing China manufactured tablet market. Offering a complete solution that incorporates the application processor and EDGE modem on a single chip is a significant advantage over providers who can only offer an application processor without the baseband. China essentially dominates the low-end tablet market, which is expected to surpass 100 million units in 2013. We look forward to working closely with customers to begin securing design-ins for their smartphone platforms in the coming months, while expanding our addressable market to include future opportunities in the tablet market as well."
