TriQuint wins Northrop Grumman’s Strategic Supplier and Innovation awards

At its Supply Chain Management (SCM) and Mission Assurance (MA) 2008 Supplier Conference at the Historical Electronics Museum in Linthicum, MD on 23 July, Northrop Grumman Corporation Electronic Systems (NGES) recognized RF front-end product manufacturer and foundry services provider TriQuint Semiconductor Inc of Hillsboro, OR, USA with one of only two ‘Innovation’ awards presented this year. The award was for development of bulk acoustic wave (BAW) S-band tuned coupled resonator filter (TCRF) modules, designed and manufactured at TriQuint’s facility in Bend, OR.

TriQuint also received a Strategic Supplier Award for support provided by its design and manufacturing center in Richardson, TX. The firm was recognized for its products and service. “As a newly named ‘Strategic Supplier’, TriQuint will continue serving this important customer with the latest RF power and acoustic filter devices,” says Dr Gailon Brehm, Military Products marketing director.

TriQuint was among only 61 NGES suppliers nominated to receive awards. Fewer than 2% of the firm’s suppliers are nominated each year, with less than 1% receiving awards. TriQuint was one of 32 firms recognized by Northrop Grumman, and the only one to win two awards.
