RFMD And TriQuint Renamed Qorvo
New name 'conveys combined company's ability to deliver core technologies and innovation'
RF Micro Devices and TriQuint Semiconductor have revealed that their combined companies will be renamed Qorvo.
Pronounced kor-vo, the new name is said to convey the combined company's ability to deliver the core technologies and innovation that will enable customers to launch their next-generation designs even faster. "We believe that our new name reflects our company's commitment to keep customers at the centre of all that we do," said Bob Bruggeworth, RFMD president and CEO, who will serve as Qorvo's CEO following closing of the merger. "As a new leader in RF solutions, Qorvo will offer the agility, innovation and precision customers need for success in mobile, infrastructure, and defense markets."
"Our companies have been RF industry pioneers developing many of the core technologies our world now relies on," said TriQuint CEO Ralph Quinsey, who will serve as non-executive Chairman of Qorvo following closing of the merger. "Qorvo is building from our foundation of true innovation to solve our customers' most difficult challenges. We do this so that their customers, whether mobile consumers or troops on the move, will be able to connect with loved ones, protect our security, or voyage to new lands."
Shareholders of both TriQuint and RFMD voted to approve the merger on September 5th, 2014, and the transaction is expected to close in the second half of 2014, following other required regulatory approvals and satisfaction of customary closing conditions. Qorvo is expected to be traded on the NASDAQ Global Stock Market under the ticker symbol 'QRVO' following closing of the merger.
AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
