SPTS receives Supplier Excellence Award from Qorvo

SPTS Technologies Ltd of Newport, Wales, UK (an Orbotech company that manufactures etch, PVD and CVD wafer processing solutions for the MEMS, advanced packaging, LED, high-speed RF on GaAs, and power management device markets) has been presented with a Supplier Excellence Award by Qorvo Inc in appreciation of SPTS' hard work, support and commitment to excellence.

Formed from the merger of RF Micro Devices Inc of Greensboro, NC and TriQuint Semiconductor Inc of Hillsboro, OR, USA, Qorvo has more than 7000 staff globally and provides RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and aerospace/defense applications. SPTS is a preferred supplier to Qorvo, and its Sigma fxP PVD solution is the process of record for depositing piezoelectric films.

"Qorvo needed to quickly and cost-efficiently increase production capacity of their Richardson, Texas line in order to meet customer demand," says Kevin Crofton, president of SPTS Technologies and corporate VP at Orbotech. "They set some challenging timescales, but by adapting our manufacturing and installation processes, we were able to meet their requirements on schedule and to specification. This Qorvo Supplier Excellence Award recognizes the results achieved through hard work and close collaboration between our teams," he adds. 

"We have been impressed with the ability of SPTS to achieve the promised delivery deadlines to meet our planned ramp, with the flexibility to accommodate late changes, while also providing cost-savings associated with re-configuring existing toolsets and efficient hand-over of all the tools," comments Howard Witham, VP, Texas Operations, Qorvo. "Open and clear communication between us has been key at all stages from PO to process qualification."
