Alpha Industries, Inc. has begun shipping volume production of its market-leading GaAs integrated circuits (IC) into Siemens AG's newest dual-band GSM wireless handsets for the European market. Alpha expects full production to begin by June 2001. Siemens, the world's fourth-largest handset manufacturer, emerged as one of the fastest- growing mobile phone companies in the third quarter of 2000, according to newly released research from Gartner Dataquest. "Alpha continues to broaden its business with the global leaders in the wireless handset market," said Alpha President and CEO Dave Aldrich. "We are, once again, pleased to see our semiconductor solutions designed into a market leader's cornerstone platform of next generation handsets. Our success in securing design wins and subsequent production contracts at Siemens is a tribute to our design team's efforts and reflects the continuing success of our global customer diversification strategy."
