RDA Microelectronics is a fabless semiconductor company that designs, develops and markets wireless systems-on-chip and radio-frequency semiconductors for cellular, connectivity, and broadcast applications. We shipped our first product in 2005, and our diversified product portfolio currently includes baseband, radio-frequency front end modules, power amplifiers, transceivers, Bluetooth systems-on-chip, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and FM combo chips, FM radio receivers, set-top box tuners, analog mobile television receivers, CMMB mobile television receivers, walkie-talkie transceivers and LNB satellite down converters. Since inception, we have been dedicated to meeting the specific needs of the manufacturers of wireless devices based in China. In particular, we seek to provide the high levels of product integration, rapid time-to-market and flexible design as well as the local sales service and engineer support valued by this customer base.
Our core competency is the design of highly integrated, high-performance radio-frequency and mixed-signal systems-on-chip. We have developed our core competency through a combination of technical know-how, system- and application-level knowledge and expertise in mixed-signal integrated circuits which convert real-world analog signals. Through internal development, licensing and acquisition, we have assembled an extensive library of radio-frequency, mixed-signal, and digital signal processing building blocks which enables us to develop our comprehensive system-level intellectual property. Our system level intellectual property includes baseband, FM, Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, analog mobile television, CMMB, DAB, and other radio-frequency components including 2G and 3G transceivers, DVB-T and DVB-S tuners, and power amplifiers. Our technology platform, comprising all the above, enables us to improve our design efficiency, increase the productivity of our engineers and develop new products quickly to meet customer requirements.
According to IHS iSuppli, an independent market research company, we were the number one supplier of power amplifiers and Bluetooth systems-on-chip and the number two supplier of 2G baseband chips to Chinese manufacturers in terms of units shipped in the fourth quarter of 2012.
We currently have more than 1,100 customers, most of which are located in our primary market, China. Since our inception, over two billion RDA units have been incorporated into mobile handsets, set-top boxes, MP3 players and other wireless and consumer electronic devices and sold in China, Southeast Asia, India, the Middle East, Africa, Russia, and Latin America.
