Dec. 14, 2010 (Business Wire) — RF Monolithics, Inc.

RFM’s SAW filters represent state-of-the-art in SAW design and provide the desired filtering solution for satellite radio receivers. Satellite radio is just one of the many applications for our SAW filter products. RFM has developed multiple filter products for the satellite digital radio receiver market and supplies SAW filters for past and current generation satellite digital radio receivers. RFM continues to work with SIRIUS XM (NASDAQ: SIRI) and satellite digital radio manufacturers on products for future generation radios. SIRIUS XM announced November 30, 2010, that it had surpassed 20 million subscribers, a record number of subscribers.

“RFM’s SAW filters are renowned for their technical benefits and small size, which are essential elements of satellite radio receivers,” stated Buddy Barnes, Chief Financial Officer of RFM. “We reached this milestone of the one hundred millionth SAW filter to satellite digital radio receiver manufacturers over the past ten years. The primary market for satellite radios has been automotive, a market which was challenging last year but one in which RFM has a long history of success and a market that has shown quite a recovery in 2010. We are pleased to be associated with SIRIUS XM, the industry leader in the satellite digital radio field and be a part of the overall automotive market. We see additional opportunities in the automotive market as vehicles become focal points for communication with Mobile Telematics, including GPS, cellular, voice, texting, video, etc. Our strength and experience in both the telecom and automotive markets come together in this new area.”
