Qorvo has again been invited to help lead the way to the future.

Earlier this year, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) awarded Qorvo funding to develop a 90nm GaN (gallium nitride) node as part of a project called STARRY NITE (Advanced Integration Interconnection and Fabrication Growth for Domestic State of the Art (SOTA) Radio Frequency Gallium Nitride). The goal of STARRY NITE is to develop and mature domestic, open state-of-the-art RF GaN foundries in alignment with the DoD’s advanced packaging ecosystem. STARRY NITE represents the DoD’s commitment to continue the development of cutting-edge GaN technology and take advantage of its higher intrinsic capability for speed and voltage than silicon and GaAs (gallium arsenide) offer.
