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."
