Report Summary:

Revenue trends in this broad segment of the market are beginning to bifurcate. The RF device manufacturers saw quarterly drops in their financial performance after what is historically their biggest quarter, but optical companies saw strong sequential growth as that market continues to expand. Acquisition activity remains strong, as a number of deals were announced across the entire sector.
