NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- February 12, 2013

Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), the industry leader in technology
for small cell base stations, announced today that according to Infonetics
Research, it had 63% of the 3GPP small cell market. Most of these shipments
were for commercial deployment of HSPA small cells.

With LTE small cells starting to deploy, Mindspeed announced that it is in
pole position in this segment too with commercial deployments in SK Telecom,
Korea Telecom and other operators around the world. The company has 34 design
engagements for LTE and dual-mode small-cells, including market-leading OEMs
and is well positioned as operators launch. Finally, the company has
deployments in China for TD-SCDMA and has announced a technical collaboration
agreement with China Mobile Research Institute.

“Mindspeed has a very strong position in small cells,” said Richard Webb,
chief analyst of Infonetics. “It is clear that they have the leadership
position in 3G small cells and a strong place in the emerging segment for LTE.
We believe that the economics will favor dual-mode and multi-mode small cells,
so having this portfolio will help Mindspeed in their position as the market
evolves and competition intensifies.”

Mindspeed is the only SoC company with commercially deployed products for both
3G and LTE. Additionally, it is the only company to have demonstrated both FDD
and TDD versions of LTE. Finally, Mindspeed is the only company with an SoC
solution for TD-SCDMA. As such, Mindspeed has, by far, the most mature and the
most comprehensive range of small cell SoCs.

Many semiconductor companies are looking to the small cell segment. Based on
Infonetics’ data, Mindspeed has 63% of the 3GPP segment. The remaining 37% is
shared between all other suppliers.

“Small cells represent one of the most exciting segments in the wireless
market today, and we are proud of our position in it,” said Raouf Y. Halim,
chief executive officer at Mindspeed. “A year ago Mindspeed acquired Picochip,
who had pioneered this market and built a dominant position. In the twelve
months following the acquisition, we have extended our lead – not only are we
number one in 3G, we are number one in LTE and are still the only SoC company
with field-proven products in both technologies. We have integrated the teams,
gained the synergies we had aimed for and, as a result, are the only SoC
company with credible dual-mode solutions.”

The company will be hosting small cell technology demonstrations for service
providers, OEM customers, press and analysts during Mobile World Congress 2013
at stand 7E.104 from February 25 - 28, 2013 at the Fira Gran Via in Barcelona,
