Now RFanlysts buzzing.

NBC’s “Today” show recently used Apple iPad two to three competitors have announced tablets, including Samsung Galaxy.

Samsung has struck one month ago against RF Micro to buy thousands of PowerSmart components for their products.

RF co-founder Jerry Neal, who is also executive vice president of strategic development, said PowerSmart components are smaller and use intelligent software to coordinate a variety of power functions in small wireless devices when treated by several components.

PowerSmart the device acts like a tiny computer, giving manufacturers the flexibility to use in a variety of ways, including cell phones handset and tablets.

It also reduces the amount of space components such use.

For RF, Neal said, PowerSmart is the culmination of years of development and bet on the explosion of tablets.

At the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, 60 tablets new smart platform have been introduced, Neal said.
“These things will be everywhere,” he said.

But Neal said PowerSmart – the power amplifier, as the new product is called in the trade – means that RF will be able to recover most of the money that manufacturers pass on the components.

RF Micro part of the amount that manufacturers of aircraft passed over the parties and could be 4 to 8 and by product, compared to older phones that use and 1 to 4 each and RF products, aanlyst wrote in a report in Barron’s online.

RF Micro products are so versatile, Neal said, that manufacturers would be able to save money by reducing their suppliers.

Barron’s said RF holds a 35 percent market power amplifier in the world for handsets. And Barron’s predicts that the market for smart phones alone will grow from 350 million this year to nearly $ 800 million in 2014.

This could be good for a revenue increase of 1.25 billion in 2013.

“What we want is to get as much local content of RF smart as possible,” said Neal.

The strong prediction is one of several milestones the company achieved its entry into its third decade.

RF Micro also announced March 3 that he had made remarkable progress in a solar cell designed for the mass-market business. He works in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy on the project.

The company has a long list of technical achievements, including being the first company to ship one billion power amplifiers for cell phones.

However, RF Micro, which claims millions of chips a day and employs about 1,400 people locally, has not always had a vision sunny.

Its share price, once inflated above and 80 a share during the tech bubble in 2000, fell below and 10, where it has traded for over six years.

In early 2009, the company said it would make a point load of 800 million and it would not be surprised investors with heavy losses he expects during the recession.

After cutting production for a while, however, the company makes profits and confirmed, as new markets such as smart phones and tablet PCs were the right targets.

However,anlysts were disappointed that it’s 36.7 million and revenue for the last three months of 2010 were not up to expectations.

Neal said the PowerSmart product puts the company in a new arena.

“We are very excited about our prospects and we believe this gives us the opportunity to present our products,” he said.
