Raytheon shines a light on TriQuint
TriQuint has been recognised by Raytheon for exceptional performance in supporting its Space and Airborne Systems (SAS) business during 2011
TriQuint Semiconductor was honoured by Raytheon for the fourth consecutive year at the company’s 2011 SAS Supplier Excellence Award (SEA) recognition event.
Winning suppliers represent less than one percent of the SAS supply base. Only 39 companies that supply Raytheon SAS received awards in 2011. Winning companies were chosen by Raytheon for meeting demanding standards in the areas of quality and delivery performance, customer satisfaction, total business and financial health. Evaluations from Raytheon buyers and material program managers who interact with TriQuint every day were also part of the selection process.
“We’re extremely proud of continuing recognition from Raytheon SAS. TriQuint’s Defence team is focused on service, quality and highly-reliable solutions for phased array radar chipsets and other critical programs. Our ISO/AS9100 foundry continually strives to offer the best technology in the industry in order to enable customers’ leading-edge applications—systems that are vitally important to service personnel across the globe,” remarked James L. Klein, TriQuint Vice President and General Manager for Defence Products and Foundry Services.
TriQuint’s expertise in GaN, GaAs surface acoustic and bulk acoustic wave (SAW / BAW) technologies has made it a leading supplier of RF system components and foundry services to Raytheon and other major defence / aerospace contractors. TriQuint currently supports multiple GaN process and manufacturing development programs funded by DARPA as well as US Air Force, Army and Naval laboratories.
