Amalfi Semiconductor Raises $20M

Amalfi Semiconductor, a Los Gatos, Calif.-based provider of high performance power amplifier solutions for cellular handsets, has raised an additional $20m in funding.

Backers include existing investors Battery Ventures, DCM and Globespan Capital Partners.

The company intends to use the funds to expand its business operations and accelerate new product development programs of its technologies.

Led by Mark Foley, CEO and President, Amalfi provides next-generation CMOS power amplifier technology, which is primarily targeted for use in entry-level and ultra-low cost 2G GSM/GPRS cellular handsets in emerging markets. The company introduced its first family of CMOS-based 2G GSM/GPRS transmit module (TxM) integrated circuits (IC) in 2009. In August 2011, Amalfi launched its second-generation AdaptiveRF™ architecture, designed to deliver higher performance at significantly reduced costs compared to traditional GaAs modules.
