GuruFocus Financial Strength Rank measures how strong a company’s financial situation is. It is based on these factors

1. The debt burden that the company has as measured by its Interest coverage (current year).
2. Debt to revenue ratio. The lower, the better
3. Altman Z-score.

A company ranks high with financial strength is likely to withstand any business slowdowns and recessions.

GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Compare:INTC, TSM, BRCM, ARMH, ADI » details
Traded in other countries:RFM.Germany
RF Micro Devices, Inc. was incorporated under the laws of the State of North Carolina in 1991. It designs and manufactures of high-performance radio frequency (RF) components and compound semiconductors technologies. The company's products enable worldwide mobility, provide enhanced connectivity and support advanced functionality in the cellular handset, wireless infrastructure, wireless local area network (WLAN or WiFi), cable television (CATV)/broadband and aerospace and defense markets. The Company is recognized for its portfolio of semiconductor technologies and RF systems expertise, and it is a preferred supplier to the world's mobile device, customer premises and communications equipment providers. Its design and manufacturing expertise encompasses many semiconductor process technologies, which it access through both internal and external resources. The Company is a manufacturer of gallium arsenide (GaAs)-based compound semiconductors for RF applications. It accesses silicon-based technologies and a small percentage of GaAs through external foundries. Its design and manufacturing resources enable it to deliver products optimized for performance and cost in order to meet its customers' performance, cost and time-to-market requirements. It designs, develops, manufactures and markets its products to both domestic and international OEMs and ODMs for commercial, industrial, military, aerospace and other markets in both wireless and wired communications applications. The Company offers a line of products that range from single-function components to highly integrated ICs (integrated circuits) and multi-chip modules (MCMs). Its ICs include gain blocks, LNAs, PAs, receivers, transmitters, transceivers, modulators, demodulators, attenuators, switches, frequency synthesizers and voltage-controlled oscillators (VCOs). Its MCM products include PA modules, switch-filter modules, active antenna products, VCOs, phase-locked loops (PLLs), coaxial resonator oscillators (CROs), active mixers, variable gain amplifiers, hybrid amplifiers, power doublers and optical receivers. The Company's passive components include splitters, couplers, mixers and transformers, as well as isolators and circulators, which are used mainly in wireless infrastructure and CATV set-top box applications. Its products employ an array of semiconductor process technologies, including GaAs, GaN, silicon complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) and silicon germanium (SiGe). It sells its products worldwide directly to customers as well as through a network of domestic and foreign sales representative firms and distributors. The Company operates in a very competitive industry characterized by rapid advances in technology and new product introductions.
