TriQuint earns ‘Excellent Supplier’ award from Chinese smartphone maker Yulong

RF front-end product and foundry services provider TriQuint Semiconductor Inc of Hillsboro, OR, USA has received the ‘Excellent Supplier’ award from Shenzhen-based smartphone handset maker Yulong Telecommunication (a subsidiary of China Wireless Technologies Ltd).

“TriQuint is now an important RF front-end supplier of Yulong; this award represents our recognition and appreciation to TriQuint,” says Yulong’s senior VP of supply chain Xiaohui Xu. “We hope our co-operation with TriQuint can be extended to becoming strategic partners, and we look forward to having a better co-development with TriQuint,” he adds.

According to David Kerr, vice president at Strategy Analytics, in first-quarter 2011 Yulong and two other Asian micro-vendors outperformed major international handset brands in China and India. “Yulong Coolpad is on track to becoming a known player in the China 3G market, supplying affordable, mid-tier 3G smartphones to suburban and urban users,” he says. “Yulong Coolpad is growing relationships with all three Chinese mobile carriers, tapping the growing 3G boom in this important handset market.” Coolpad handsets are the main products of Yulong, and TriQuint has supplied the firm with cellular power amplifier (PA) modules and WLAN PAs for its broad smartphone portfolio.

“Yulong is one of the leaders in the field of 3G technology, so earning this ‘Excellent Supplier’ award from Yulong Coolpad highlights TriQuint’s significant contributions to mobile handset designs in China,” states TriQuint vice president Glen Riley. “As a global supplier, TriQuint will continue to grow its portfolio of wireless broadband solutions for mobile devices, helping phone manufacturers improve the performance and lower their cost,” he adds.
