Reading time ( words)

Qorvo®, a leading provider of innovative RF solutions that connect the world, announced that Custom MMIC, which was acquired by Qorvo in February, has been awarded a 4-Star Supplier Excellence Award by Raytheon Technologies’ legacy Integrated Defense Systems business (now Raytheon Missiles and Defense) for 2019 performance. The supplier excellence program was instituted to recognize quality, on-time delivery and commitment to continuous improvement. This is the fourth consecutive year that Custom MMIC received the prestigious honor.  

James Klein, president of Qorvo’s Infrastructure and Defense Products (IDP), said, “The 4-Star award is presented by Raytheon’s legacy Integrated Defense Systems business to suppliers that achieve excellence in quality and performance. We are proud of Custom MMIC’s history and pleased that its technology and strong customer service will significantly benefit Qorvo customers.”

Custom MMIC’s high-performance Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) and Gallium Nitride (GaN) monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) have been proven in mission-critical defense, aerospace and space applications. Now part of IDP, it is contributing to Qorvo’s expanding RF and millimeter wave product portfolio enabling further integration for defense phased array radars, electronic warfare, land/space-based satellite communications, wireless backhaul and microwave test equipment.

Qorvo offers a broad GaN-on-SiC and GaAs product portfolio to help customers achieve significant improvements in efficiency, reliability and operational capabilities. The company’s GaAs and GaN-on-SiC products deliver high power density, reduced size, excellent gain, high reliability and process maturity.

The Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap for Aerospace and Defense

11/24/2020 | Jeff Demmin, Keysight Technologies
Most people in the semiconductor industry are familiar with the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS), which provided guidance for the industry starting in 1991 (as the National Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors). As the benefits of Moore’s Law became more difficult and more expensive to achieve, the organization decided to publish a final version in 2016. The baton was handed to the Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap (HIR), with the realization that heterogeneous integration—assembling different types of devices rather than monolithic fabrication—is an important enabler for continued progress in the semiconductor industry.
