For more than 30 years, Qorvo has enabled innovation for next-generation defense and aerospace technologies. Qorvo products are at the core of many of the world's most advanced radar, space, communications and electronic warfare (EW) systems. Innovations such as GaAs, GaN, SAW, BAW as well as integrated assembly, custom die-level packaging and expert engineering, help Qorvo to meet the world's mission-critical needs. In partnership with the U.S. Department of Defense, DARPA and Research Laboratories, and Qorvo's own R&D, we have engineered significant advantages in size, weight and power (SWaP) for our customers.
Qorvo offers strategic customers additional services including integrated assembly, test and packaging, all in our secure facilities. We call this world-class facility "AMMA" — short for Advanced Microwave Module Assembly.

Qorvo is proud to be a Category 1A "Trusted Source" supplier for the U.S. Department of Defense — providing the DoD and intelligence community with critical system microelectronics; foundry access for mission applications; and technology support through partnerships within the defense industrial base.
Qorvo has led the industry as a trusted supplier and continues to add value with each renewal of the accreditation.
|2008||Qorvo receives original "Trusted Source" Category 1A accreditation.|
|2012 Renewal||Accreditation adds post-processing, packaging/assembly and RF test services.|
|2016 Renewal||Accreditation expands to include design services.|
In 2014 Qorvo was the first GaN RF chip manufacturer to achieve the U.S. Department of Defense’s MRL 9 – Manufacturing Readiness Level 9 – for its GaN technology. MRL 9 is the DoD’s second-highest level of production readiness and indicates that:
The DoD’s Manufacturing Readiness Assessment (MRA) ensures that manufacturing, production and quality assurance can meet operational mission needs for the U.S. military. This process ensures that the product or system transitions successfully from the factory to the field, providing the best value for the customer.
As an established GaN provider for domestic and international defense programs, Qorvo continues to provide record-setting GaN circuit reliability and compact, high efficiency products, paving the way for robust performance, low maintenance and long operational lifetimes.
Qorvo's patented Spatium® RF power combining technology provides a highly reliable, efficient alternative to traveling wave tube amplifiers (TWTAs). It delivers a higher standard of efficiency, reliability and bandwidth as well as clear size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C) advantages.
