TriQuint reaches High-Point

TriQuint Semiconductor Inc is to open a new design and support center in High Point, North Carolina, USA. It will be known as the North Carolina Design Center (NCDC), and forms part of TriQuint’s ongoing program to work more closely with its partners and customers to develop next-generation wireless modules and components.
“This new facility – our second to open in less than a year and our sixth product development location overall – will bolster design activity and supplement existing resources,” said Brian Balut, TriQuint VP. “The new center will further enhance TriQuint’s creative resources and foster collaboration among engineers and scientific experts from both within the company and our customers throughout the Eastern Seaboard and our European staff. The center’s development focus is to leverage TriQuint’s wireless expertise, translating that into new solutions for our customers,” he added.

Work at the NCDC will cover a wide array of gallium arsenide (GaAs) and surface acoustic wave (SAW) technologies. The company expects to move into its new suite, located at 4050 Piedmont Parkway, by August 1, 2006.

The NCDC will initially employ a professional staff of six engineers, eventually growing to between 20 and 25 employees in total. Professional opportunities are available. For details: http://www.triquint.com/employment
