Business Description

Industry: Semiconductors » Semiconductors
Traded in other countries:TQS.Germany,

Triquint Semiconductor was incorporated in California in 1981 and reincorporated in Delaware on February 12, 1997. The Company is a supplier of high performance modules and components for wireless communications applications. It design, develop and manufacture advanced high-performance RF solutions with gallium arsenide, gallium nitride, bipolar high electron mobility transistor, surface acoustic wave, temperature compensated surface acoustic wave, bulk acoustic wave, copper flip and wafer level packaging technologies for customers worldwide. The Company offers a broad array of filtering, switching and amplification products for RF, microwave and millimeter-wave applications. It utilizes specialized substrate materials and high-performance process technologies such as GaAs, GaN, pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistors ("pHEMT"), GaN high electron mobility transistor, heterojunction bipolar transistors ("HBT"), metal-semiconductor field effect transistor ("MESFET"), bipolar high electron mobility transistor ("BiHEMT"), WLP, CuFlipTM, SAW, TC-SAW and BAW to design and manufacture products which are intended to improve the performance and lower the overall cost of the customers' applications. The Company focuses on three end markets in the electronic communications system industry: mobile devices, networks and defense and aerospace. The Company's products used by customers in the mobile devices end market include transmit modules, power amplifier modules, power amplifier-duplexer modules, duplexers, switches, integrated products and other advanced products to meet the changing needs of the global communications marketplace. The Company uses its in-house technology portfolio to address the low noise, power efficient amplification, low loss switching and efficient and accurate frequency conversion requirements of system designers. Its products support 2G, 3G and 4G standards (global system for mobile communication, general packet radio service, EDGE, code division multiple access, evolution-data optimized WCDMA, high speed packet access, WEDGE, WGPRS, LTE, WLAN and others). In the networks end market, the Company addresses three main submarkets focused on transport, radio access, and catalog products serving multiple applications. Transport is the term used for products, standards and technology used to support higher data rates across wireless or wired infrastructure networks including long haul, metro, backhaul and access applications. This includes optical networking, CATV, FTTH, PtP radio and non-military satellite terminal communication. Radio access includes its products used in all cellular standards of base stations and repeaters. The Company's products used by customers in the defense and aerospace end market include packaged products, die-level integrated circuits, MMICs and, increasingly, multi-chip modules, are used in many diverse communications and phased array radar programs. These programs include major ship-b
