Report Summary:

With the growth of LTE, the RF front end in cellular devices has transformed into increasingly complex integrated modules, or RF subsystems.  Four former PA leaders and a top filter module supplier dominate the landscape, with Qualcomm, the leading chipset supplier, now set to take share from the incumbents.

In support of this contention, this report examines the market shares of the top suppliers of integrated PA, filter, and switch modules.
