Agere transistors could save billions
A new series of Agere transistors with lower operating temperatures are aimed at making lower cost wireless basestations a reality
Agere's innovative products - claimed to be the world's coolest temperature wireless RF power transistors - are targeted for third-generation (3G), 2.5-generation (2.5G) and second-generation (2G) basestation equipment Agere's power amplifier transistors can enable much cooler, smaller, and less expensive wireless basestations than are possible using any other RF power transistor technology
The transistors lower overall wireless amplifier and basestation costs, and deliver lower capital and operating expenses for wireless service providers.
Agere's products have the potential to save billions of dollars annually in combined operating and capital expenses for the wireless service provider industry.
In addition, Agere's new products help accelerate the industry trend to shrink the size and shift the location of today's typical basestations, about the size of a backyard toolshed and installed on the ground, to the size of a suitcase and installed above the ground on wireless antenna towers.
