TriQuint receives Raytheon 4-star supplier excellence award  

At its annual Supplier Excellence Awards (SEA) event, Raytheon Company’s Space and Airborne Systems (SAS) recognized RF front-end product maker and foundry services provider TriQuint Semiconductor Inc of Hillsboro, OR, USA with a four-star award for quality, delivery performance and customer satisfaction in relation to work on chipsets for phased array radar and other critical programs. TriQuint was one of 15 firms recognized by Raytheon and one of only two that received top, four-star honors.

TriQuint manufactures integrated circuits for defense and aerospace applications including communications satellites, phased array radar, guidance, control and related systems. Expertise in RF, microwave and millimeter-wave power and filter technologies, die-level devices, packaged products and integrated modules has made TriQuint a leading supplier of system components to major defense and aerospace contractors worldwide. The firm is also ranked as the world’s largest GaAs foundry service and the defense industry’s leading foundry provider, according to the reports ‘GaAs Device Vendor Market Share 2007: North America’ and ‘GaAs Device Vendor Market Share 2007: Asia-Pacific and Europe’, released in August by market research firm Strategy Analytics.

“We continually strive to offer our customers the industry’s best power and filter devices through our top-rated foundry, supported by our ISO/AS9100 Approved Quality System,” said Dr Gailon Brehm, TriQuint’s Military Products marketing director, who received the award along with TriQuint vice president Tom Cordner.

“Raytheon SAS has been an exemplary customer. We will continually pursue the highest standards, providing Raytheon with products that meet their standards of excellence,” Brehm added.
