Filters at IMS 2014

  *New Small Cell PAs Addressing LTE Band 3, 12, 13, 17 and 40 and 2.4GHz
    WiFi Band
  *Full Spectrum of FBAR Filters Enabling LTE and WiFi Coexistence

SAN JOSE, Calif., and SINGAPORE, June 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avago
Technologies (Nasdaq:AVGO), a leading supplier of analog interface components
for wireless, wireline, and industrial applications, today announced four new
RF power amplifiers (PAs) for Small Cell base transceiver station (BTS)
applications and a full spectrum of LTE/WiFi coexistence FBAR filters for

"Avago is a leading provider of RF front end solutions for Small Cell
applications with the industry's most comprehensive product offering of LTE
PAs and LTE/WiFi coexistence filters," said Ron Ruebusch, senior vice
president and general manager of Avago's Wireless Semiconductor Division. "The
introduction of our four new MGA-43xxx PAs and full showcase of our LTE/WiFi
coexistence filters at IMS 2014 further demonstrate Avago's commitment to
addressing the growing Small Cell market segment."

"With mobile data demand overwhelming the mobile network, small cells are
becoming an important part of building capacity for LTE," asserted Joe Madden,
principal analyst at Mobile Experts. "The early days of femtocells are now
changing to multi-band, multi-mode small cells where 3G, LTE, and Wi-Fi must
operate simultaneously without interference. The industry needs
high-performance RF filters and power amplifiers to make these multi-mode
radio nodes successful."
