TriQuint recognized for excellence by Raytheon for third consecutive year

At its 2010 SAS Supplier Excellence Award (SEA) recognition event, Raytheon Company has honored RF component maker and foundry services provider TriQuint Semiconductor Inc of Hillsboro, OR, USA for the third consecutive year for exceptional performance in supporting Raytheon’s Space and Airborne Systems (SAS) business.

Winning suppliers represent less than 1% of the SAS supply base. Only 34 companies that supply Raytheon SAS received awards.

Winning firms were chosen by Raytheon for meeting demanding quality and delivery performance, customer satisfaction as well as total business and financial health standards during 2009. Evaluations from Raytheon buyers and material program managers who work with TriQuint every day were part of the selection process.

“This award honors TriQuint professionals’ commitment to service, quality and highly reliable solutions for phased array radar chipsets and other critical programs,” says TriQuint VP Tom Cordner. “TriQuint expertise supports service members across the globe,” he adds.

TriQuint’s expertise in gallium nitride (GaN), gallium arsenide (GaAs), surface acoustic wave and bulk acoustic wave (SAW/BAW) technologies has made it a leading supplier of RF system components to Raytheon and other major defense/aerospace contractors. TriQuint says that its module capabilities, packaging technology and monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) continue to expand its global market reach. TriQuint is a Department of Defense (DoD)-accredited ‘Trusted Foundry’ (Category 1A) and is a supplier of GaAs and GaN foundry services. The firm also supplies RF components for consumer retail products including mobile devices, wireless LAN, triple-play CATV systems, optical network and wireless infrastructure applications.
