TriQuint Selected as Finalist for Technology Award
May 9, 2012
TriQuint is honored to announce it is one of three finalists for the prestigious 2012 American Technology Awards in the semiconductor and electronic components category. TriQuint was selected for this distinction for introducing the industry's first dual-band, power amplifier-duplexer (PAD) modules for global 3G/4G smartphones and other mobile devices. "TriQuint continues to win acclaim for its RF technology leadership and integration expertise," said Shane Smith, TriQuint’s Vice President of Global Marketing for Mobile Devices. The new TRITIUM Duo™ family integrates two band-specific power amplifiers and duplexers with other components in a single ultra-compact module, effectively replacing up to twelve discrete parts with a much smaller footprint. The 2-in-1 PADs offer mix-and-match two-band combinations, giving device manufacturers a flexible, high-performance platform that speeds time to market.
The prestigious industry awards are bestowed annually to honor innovations in technology, and are also known as the "Terman" awards in memory of Frederick Terman, who is widely credited with being the father of the Silicon Valley.
