HILLSBORO, Ore. -- September 16, 2013

TriQuint Semiconductor, Inc. (NASDAQ: TQNT), a leading RF solutions supplier
and technology innovator, today announced that its TriConnect® 5 GHz WLAN
front-end modules and premium LTE / Wi-Fi coexistence filters  are being
leveraged by Broadcom Corporation for use in the company’s 5G Wi-Fi reference
designs. The 5G Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11ac) technology delivers faster throughput,
longer operating range and extended battery life for smartphones, tablets and
other consumer devices.

Broadcom’s 5G Wi-Fi reference designs are widely used by engineers developing
next-generation consumer devices. Broadcom’s highly integrated combo chips
offer a complete dual-band 5G Wi-Fi system with Bluetooth, FM radio and
software on a single, compact silicon die. TriQuint’s ultra-small,
high-performance RF components deliver the demanding RF performance required
to fully realize the speed, range and power saving benefits of 802.11ac, the
latest evolution of Wi-Fi.

“We are proud to be strategically aligned with Broadcom, a well-recognized
innovator in wireless communications,” said Tim Dunn, Vice President of Mobile
Devices. “Broadcom and TriQuint are leaders in delivering 802.11ac-based
products. We’re enabling gigabit Wi-Fi speeds and solving Wi-Fi / LTE
coexistence problems to provide a superior consumer experience.”

Analysts expect more than 100 million 802.11ac-enabled devices to ship by the
end of 2013, growing to nearly half of all Wi-Fi chipset shipments for the
consumer electronics market by 2017, a CAGR of 430%*. TriQuint’s TriConnect®
WLAN products already have captured multiple design wins with leading
smartphone manufacturers. Its TQP887051 5GHz WLAN front-end module has been
approved for Broadcom reference design BCM4335, while its LTE / Wi-Fi
coexistence filter is included on reference designs BCM4335 and BCM4339.

TriQuint introduced the industry’s first 802.11ac-ready module for mobile
devices last year. “Since then, we have leveraged TriQuint’s advanced in-house
technology portfolio, the industry’s largest, to develop our next-generation
Wi-Fi products,” Dunn added. “Our 802.11ac technology expertise also expands
our future market opportunity for consumer electronics applications such as
in-home video distribution.”

allowing consumers to watch HD-quality video from more devices, in more
places, simultaneously. The increased speed enables consumers to download web
content from a mobile device faster and quickly synch large files, such as
videos, in a fraction of the time. Visit www.broadcom.com to learn more.
