TriQuint Unveils TQP15 Optical pHEMT Process Technology

Provider of foundry services, TriQuint Semiconductor has launched the new TQP15 Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) foundry process.

The TQP15 is suitable for the construction of millimeter wave (mmWave) MMICs in applications including point to point radios, satellite communications, and VSAT.

The TQP15 is focused at the Ka-band segment, and is produced in the GaAs fabrication unit of TriQuint in Hillsboro, Oregon. The TQP15 expands the company’s product line of      
Pseudomorphic High Electron Mobility Transistor (pHEMT) process. The TQP15 uses optical lithography to minimize cost, when compared to the conventional E-beam based solutions. The foundry process utilizes the refractory gate metal architecture.

TriQuint will conduct an interactive customer forum to discuss the architecture, performance, and reliability of the TQP15, together with EuMW, at the Renaissance Paris la Defense, Bagatelle / Tulle room, on September 27, 2010.

Custom MMIC Design Services’ President, Paul Blount stated that the TQP15 provides a cost-effective high-frequency pHEMT process. He added that they have deployed the TQP15 for control functions and amplifiers up to K-band frequencies. They will use the process to develop their product line through Ka band, Paul said.
