Cree’s 100-mm RF GaN facility awarded Category 1A Trusted Foundry status

Gallium nitride (GaN) RF devices maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA says it has achieved a major production milestone with its recent accreditation as a U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Category 1A Trusted Foundry for its 100-mm RF GaN facility in Durham, NC. The accreditation is the highest designation awarded by the DoD, and differentiates Cree as a trusted supplier of GaN technology in support of national defense applications, adds the firm.

Category 1A Trusted Foundry accreditation validates that policies and procedures designed to ensure the trustworthiness, integrity and confidentiality of the manufacturing process, including chain of custody, supply continuity and anti-tampering, are securely in place.

“The DoD Trusted Foundry accreditation puts Cree into a select group of trusted manufacturers in the U.S. that are certified to produce both unclassified and classified hardware for DoD programs critical to national defense,” said Jim Milligan, Cree director of RF and microwave products. “This designation ensures that products manufactured at Cree meet the highest standards of secure handling and production control throughout the entire manufacturing process.”

In the last four years, Cree has shipped more than 5m MMICs and devices, and during this time, approximately four billion device hours in the field have been accumulated with an associated FIT rate of less than 10 failures per one billion device hours.
