This paper documents the transfer of two AlGaAs / InGaAs Pseudomorphic High Electron Mobility Transistor (pHEMT) Technologies from the Infineon Technologies AG facility in Perlach Germany to TriQuint Semiconductor in Hillsboro, Oregon.

We will present:

  • The methods used for early technology compatibility assessments and goal setting.
  • The qualification of equipment transferred from Infineon after modifications to conform to U.S. standards.
  • The qualification of epitaxial suppliers.
  • The development methodologies of technologies new to TriQuint.
  • The transfer and integration of Infineon processing experts into the TriQuint organization.
  • Comparisons of pHEMT parameters of devices fabricated at Infineon and TriQuint.
