The article reports on the planning of Freescale Semiconductor Inc. to diversify its radio frequency semiconductor activities outside the mobile phone infrastructure market. For the purpose of diversification, the firm has introduced transistors designed for the HF/VHF frequency band and the 2.45GHz ISM band. John McCaffrey, product manager at Freescale said that there has not been a lot of innovation in the 2.45GHz ISM band market therefore they are bringing innovation from the cellular market.
