Greensboro, North Carolina USA – Qorvo®, a leading provider of innovative RF solutions that connect the world, has earned continued Trusted Source Category 1A accreditation through 2018 from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). The company is one of only five accredited suppliers for both gallium nitride (GaN) and gallium arsenide (GaAs).

It also affirms to our commercial customers and partners that we will maintain the security of their intellectual property.”
