Agilent to Acquire Wavics for Handset Power Amplifiers

Agilent Techonologies agreed to acquire Wavics, a Korean-based designer and manufacturer of power amplifier modules for the worldwide mobile handset market. The technology reduces battery power consumption and allows CDMA and W-CDMA handsets to run cooler. Agilent said it plans to combine this new power amplifier capability with its miniature FBAR (film bulk acoustic resonator) filters to create higher-performance CDMA and W-CDMA front-end modules. Financial terms were not disclosed.
