Avago Technologies Expands Portfolio of Small Cell RF Front-End Solutions

  *New RF Power Amplifiers Featuring Unmatched Linearity, Gain and
    Power-Added Efficiency
  *New WiFi FBAR Filter Enabling Stringent Adjacent Multi-Band Operation

SAN JOSE, Calif., and SINGAPORE, June 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avago
Technologies (Nasdaq:AVGO), a leading supplier of analog interface components
for wireless, wireline, and industrial applications, today announced two new
RF power amplifiers (PAs), the MGA-43728 and MGA-43828, and a new WiFi FBAR
filter, the ACFF-1024, designed specifically for small cell base transceiver
station (BTS) applications.

Expanding upon Avago's proven MGA-43x28 PA family, the MGA-43728 and MGA-43828
are respectively new UMTS/LTE Band 7 and Band 8 PAs featuring high linearity,
gain and power-added efficiency (PAE) with integrated power detector and
shutdown function. The ACFF-1024 is a new miniature band-pass filter optimized
for use in the 2.4GHz ISM band. Designed with Avago's innovative FBAR
technology, the ACFF-1024 enables concurrent operation of WiFi and Bluetooth
applications that coexist with other wireless standards such as PCS and LTE
Bands 7, 38, and 40 without performance degradation due to interference.

"Avago is committed to serving Small Cell customers with an expanded portfolio
of highly differentiated products and cost-effective solutions," said Ron
Ruebusch, vice president and general manager of Avago's Wireless Semiconductor
Division. "Leveraging proven mobile handset technology, Avago shall continue
