RF Micro begins in-house packaging

June 15, 2004 – RF Micro Devices Inc., Greensboro, NC, a provider of radio-frequency ICs, has established an assembly facility at its test and tape/reel operations in Beijing, China, to provide internal module packaging capabilities.

The new capabilities, slated to be fully operational by the end of this year, provides the company’s first guaranteed in-house assembly capacity — all other existing capacity is sourced from assembly houses.

It’s also part of the company’s larger plan to streamline the company’s manufacturing supply chain and lower manufacturing costs and reduce cycle times to third-party suppliers, as well as provide proximity to handset production increasingly centered in Asia.
