Amalfi Semiconductor introduced its first family of CMOS-based 2G GSM/GPRS TxM ICs in 2009 and began shipping products in early 2010. The Amalfi AM7801, AM7802 and AM7803 Dual and Quad Band TxM ICs established a new benchmark in efficiency and electrostatic discharge (ESD) performance, enabling cellular handset manufacturers to develop lower cost phones with significantly longer battery life and smaller size. The devices are primarily targeted for use in entry level and ultra low cost (ULC) 2G GSM/GPRS cellular handsets in emerging markets.

GaAs-based transmit modules are the dominant solutions in handsets today. With the introduction of the AM7801, AM7802 and AM7803, cellular handset manufacturers now have a CMOS-based TxM IC option, which offers the best cost/performance trade-off. [Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) and Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) are semiconductor process technologies.]
