TriQuint Semiconductor Inc., an RF front-end product manufacturer and foundry services provider, has announced the acquisition of TriAccess Technologies. TriAccess provides cable TV (CATV) and Fibre-to-the-Premise (FTTP) chips for the amplification of high-quality multimedia content.

"The TriAccess team is a great fit for TriQuint," said Brian Balut, VP of network products at TriQuint. "TriAccess brings a portfolio of products for the CATV and FTTP markets, with strong design and market understanding, which accelerates TriQuint's strategy of serving these applications. The combined resources of TriQuint and TriAccess put the company in a leadership position in these growing markets."

Cable and telecom operators are competing to provide the consumer with the triple-play services of Internet, video and voice, and are upgrading their networks to provide the bandwidth needed for high-speed Internet, multiple HDTV streams, and applications such as video-on-demand. These services require RF components that provide higher performance—such as higher bandwidth, better linearity, lower noise, reduced power consumption, and higher integration—all at reduced cost. Such systems are being deployed in the United States, Europe and Asia Pacific. TriQuint's CATV products combined with TriAccess' product lines address these global needs.

"We're eager to join TriQuint and believe that together we can accelerate our success in multiple CATV and fibre optic video markets worldwide. We are anxious to further utilise TriQuint's process technology and assembly and test resources," said Chris Day, president and chief technology officer of TriAccess. Day will now manage this TriQuint Santa Rosa Design Centre focused on the growing CATV and fibre optic video markets.

Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. TriAccess' results are not expected to materially impact TriQuint's net income.
