Alpha Industries, Inc. has received a high-volume production order for RF semiconductors from Sony Corp. Alpha's semiconductors are being used in Sony's newly released, next-generation wireless handsets, which combine voice, data and wireless Internet access. "This high-volume order from Sony represents an important vote of confidence from the number-one consumer electronics company in the world," said Alpha President and CEO David Aldrich. "This is Alpha's first product to be designed into a Sony wireless handset, and it represents yet another important success in our strategy of diversifying our wireless OEM customer base." In the past fiscal quarter, Alpha diversified its roster of wireless customers by substantially increasing production-volume semiconductor shipments to Mitsubishi, Samsung and Siemens. At the same time, the company placed power amplifiers and switches in Motorola's three recently announced new phones. In the wireless infrastructure market, Alpha posted significant increases in sales to Alcatel, Ericsson and Nokia, increasing its positions in both 2.5 and 3G platforms.
