NEUBIBERG, Germany and MILPITAS, Calif. -- Infineon Technologies AG (Frankfurt:IFX.F - News) (NYSE:IFX - News) today announced it has sampled its 2nd Generation Long-Term-Evolution (LTE) RF transceiver. The SMARTi(TM) LU is a single chip 65nm CMOS RF transceiver providing 2G/3G/LTE functionality with a DigRF digital baseband interface for highest Data Rates up to 150 Mbps in LTE Networks.

Additionally Infineon announced the 3rd Generation of its successful 3G RF transceiver family, SMARTi(TM) UE. The SMARTi(TM) UEmicro is optimized for lowest cost 3G designs and enables an RF-system e-BoM for Dual Band WCDMA/EDGE as low as US $6.50; about 40 percent lower than available solutions on the market.

"In addition to being the innovation leader for LTE RF, we are also addressing the need for lowest cost 3G mobiles for the mass market by further reducing component count and system cost with SMARTi UEmicro. Meeting the ambitious cost targets of the consumer segment will fuel the commercial roll out of 3G technology to emerging markets."
