Custom MMIC awarded legacy Raytheon business Supplier Excellence Distinction for fourth consecutive year
Qorvo Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA (which provides core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and defense applications) says that Custom MMIC, which it acquired 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 its 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 has received the honor.
“The 4-Star award is presented by Raytheon’s legacy Integrated Defense Systems business to suppliers that achieve excellence in quality and performance,” says James Klein, president of Qorvo’s Infrastructure and Defense Products (IDP). “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 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 millimetre-wave product portfolio, enabling further integration for defense phased-array radars, electronic warfare (EW), land/space-based satellite communications, wireless backhaul and microwave test equipment.
