Custom MMIC receives BAE Systems’ Gold Tier Supplier Excellence Award for second consecutive year
Qorvo Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA (which provides core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and defense applications) says that Custom MMIC, which it acquired in February, has been awarded BAE Systems’ Gold Tier Supplier Excellence Award for 2019.
The award, which recognizes outstanding supplier quality, service and performance, is part of BAE Systems’ ‘Partner 2 Win’ program, which is designed to achieve operational excellence and eliminate defects in its supply chain by raising the bar of performance expectations to meet the demand of current and future customers. This is the second consecutive year that Custom MMIC has been awarded the honor.
“Custom MMIC has an outstanding reputation among leading defense customers,” comments James Klein, president of Qorvo’s Infrastructure and Defense Products (IDP) group. The award from BAE Systems “recognizes the top-tier, highest-quality performers selected among many suppliers,” he adds.
Custom MMIC’s gallium arsenide (GaAs) and gallium nitride (GaN) monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) have been proven in mission-critical defense, aerospace and space applications. Now part of IDP, it is contributing to Qorvo’s expanding RF and millimetre-wave product portfolio, enabling further integration for defense phased-array radars, electronic warfare (EW), land/space-based satellite communications, wireless backhaul and microwave test equipment.
