    We see the Wireless LAN chipset market growing to 80 million units in 2005 from 20 million units in 2002, with dual-mode 802.11 (a/b or a/g) solutions surpassing the single-mode (802.11 b or g) revenues in 2004. We believe the 802.11 and 2.5/3G will co-exist and, for the most part, be complementary in nature. However, with respect to data transmission, we believe, depending on the demography, WLAN will likely have an impact on 2.5/3G revenues. In the WLAN arena, we believe Intersil, Atheros Communications, and Broadcom are all well-positioned. (We estimate WLAN is growing at a CAGR of 60%.) In the cell phone arena, we believe Texas Instruments, QUALCOMM, RF Micro Devices, and Skyworks are all well-positioned and estimate that the cell phone arena is growing at a CAGR of 5-10%.

    Come hear and discuss the latest information and strategies in this hot field.
