TriQuint’s 77 GHz GaAs Portfolio is Auto-Qualified, Cost-Competitive

Thu, 10/28/2010 - 8:59am
TriQuint Semiconductor is offering its 77 GHz Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) chipset portfolio for motion detection and adaptive cruise control applications. TriQuint products are currently used by Delphi Automotive in its successful multimode electronically scanning radar (ESR) that enables adaptive cruise control in multiple vehicles. TriQuint 77 GHz chipset devices appeared first in 2010 model year automobiles.

The TriQuint 77 GHz portfolio includes eight products (TS-16949 factory certified) that can be utilized in a variety of design configurations for motion sensing automotive and non-vehicular applications.

In developing its system for Delphi, TriQuint combined time-tested, rugged GaAs designs utilized in defense applications with cost-conscious systems scaled for high-reliability consumer products. TriQuint also developed processes to further enhance performance and reliability including the company’s proprietary CuFlip™ ‘flip-chip’ technology that replaces wire-bonded devices with direct mounts to circuit boards. CuFlip enhances reliability and ruggedness while simplifying overall assembly.

A multimode ESR with proven solid-state technology is the heart of adaptive cruise control systems like the one developed by Delphi. Its class-leading performance, packaging and durability have helped enable a driver assistance application that not only enhances safety and convenience, but is affordable to more buyers, remarked TriQuint Vice President, Brian P. Balut.
