TriQuint wins Momentum Dallas corporate award

At its annual awards luncheon on 12 October, the Dallas Regional Chamber of Commerce presented RF front-end product and foundry services provider TriQuint Semiconductor Inc of Hillsboro, OR, USA with its 2011 Momentum Dallas award, which recognizes one company that has experienced significant job growth and fostered positive economic momentum in the Dallas region.

TriQuint’s facility in Richardson, TX sits on 33 acres, contains 550,000ft2 of workspace, and 48,000ft2 of Class 1 cleanroom space. By the end of 2011, TriQuint expects to employ more than 750 staff there, including about 230 new full-time positions in the last two years.

This headcount growth of 43% at Richardson should help to support future demand, says TriQuint. The firm is currently qualifying 6” gallium arsenide wafer production capabilities similar to its Oregon headquarter facility. TriQuint has also expanded its Advanced Microwave Module Assembly (AMMA) facility in Richardson to provide one-stop convenience and security.

The Richardson site is a US Department of Defense (DoD)-accredited ‘Trusted Foundry’ (Category 1A) and is a supplier of GaAs and GaN foundry services. Besides technology and products for defense and aerospace applications, TriQuint also supplies RF products for consumer retail products including smartphones, tablets, triple-play CATV systems, optical networks and wireless infrastructure applications.
