GaN Foundry Technology

High-Power / High-Performance Gallium Nitride

GaN ProductsTriQuint is an innovative leader in gallium nitride (GaN) research, development, foundry services and product solutions. We began exploring gallium nitride's potential in 1999 and released our first GaN on silicon carbide (SiC) foundry process in 2008. TriQuint recently announced record-setting GaN circuit reliability with its TQGaN25 Generation II process that paves the way for more robust performance, lower maintenance and longer operational lifetimes. TriQuint is also accredited by the DoD (DMEA) as a Microelectronics Trusted Source (Category 1A) for its foundry, post-processing, packaging/assembly and test services.

TriQuint's gallium nitride technology offers inherent advantages including greater power densities, ruggedness, wideband performance, power added efficiency (PAE) and ESD resistance. GaN technology is very well suited for a wide range of applications that include communications, network infrastructure, and defense / aerospace such as phased array radar, counter-IED (C-IED), VSAT and similar systems.

R & D Leadership

TriQuint's gallium nitride R&D expertise and leadership in a wide range of high-power, high-frequency processes led DARPA to choose TriQuint for multiple contracts, most recently for its Near Junction Thermal Transport (NJTT), Microscale Power Conversion (MPC) and 'NEXT' programs. TriQuint also supports the Defense Production Act Title III GaN program for continued manufacturing enhancements. Other advanced TriQuint GaN research and development programs are funded by the Tri-Services laboratories that include U.S. Air Force, Army and Navy divisions. TriQuint researchers are pioneering new ultra-fast, high-power DC-DC switches, integrated high-efficiency amplifiers and complex high dynamic range mixed-signal devices.
