Sawtek name cut in TriQuint re-brand

RF front-end modules and components supplier TriQuint Semiconductor has officially re-branded its Orlando-based Sawtek operations as TriQuint Semiconductor. Sawtek merged with TriQuint in 2001.

The Orlando operation supplies signal filtering products to handset makers for all mobile phone standards, including CDMA, GSM/EDGE and Wideband CDMA. Other products from the company include high-volume, high frequency bulk acoustic wave (BAW) filters for civilian and military applications, plus SAW filtering for WLAN, WiMAX, Bluetooth, GPS, cable TV set-top box (STB) and network radio/base stations.

“TriQuint tailored its acquisition strategy in the late 1990s and early 2000s to create a vertically-integrated company that could effectively compete globally. By adding Sawtek’s expertise to leading-edge GaAs technology TriQuint put together key elements for next-generation phone and data card modules. Our success, with a 40% revenue growth rate year over year last quarter, has validated that strategy,” said Brian P Balut, TriQuint Semiconductor’s VP.
