RF front-end product maker and foundry services provider TriQuint Semiconductor Inc of Hillsboro, OR, USA says it has received a 'Supplier of the Year' award from wireless communication system equipment maker ZTE Corp of Shenzhen, China.

ZTE annually recognizes top suppliers with superior cost, quality, delivery and service performance. TriQuint has achieved the recognition for the third consecutive year, while experiencing a compound annual growth rate of 70% with ZTE.

“TriQuint had excellent performance in the areas of on-time delivery and business co-operation in 2009,” says Zeng Zhaoxiang, vice general manager of ZTE Kang Xun. “TriQuint made outstanding contributions in enhancing the whole delivery performance of ZTE,” he adds.

“TriQuint is committed to providing ZTE with quality products and excellent service as together we address the growth challenges inherent in the dynamic telecommunications industry,” says Tim Dunn, VP Mobile Devices at TriQuint. “We look forward to continuing to supply ZTE with high-quality radio-frequency solutions for wireless communications.”

One of the world's largest telecom equipment makers, ZTE says that it sees healthy demand for its wireless handsets and data cards continuing this year, and that it expects subscriber growth for TD-SCDMA (a Chinese wireless communication standard for 3G) to rise by 500%. TriQuint supplies RF solutions to ZTE including power amplifiers, SAW filters, and multi-function integrated modules for all wireless communication standards including GSM/GPRS, EDGE, CDMA, WCDMA and TD-SCDMA.
