Fairchild Semiconductor Receives 2011 Quality Award From Huawei Technologies

Stocks in this article: FCS

Fairchild Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS), a leading global supplier of high performance power and mobile products, has received the 2011 Quality Award from Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., China's largest networking and telecommunications equipment supplier.

The award recognizes the excellence of the products and services provided by Fairchild, and the outstanding contribution the company makes to enhancing Huawei's mobile product portfolio, which includes smart phones, data cards, and wireless router modules. The award also recognizes that this contribution has been made in a market segment undergoing quantum leaps in technological innovation, driven by wireless convergence, the enhancement of the user experience, and unrelenting energy-efficiency requirements.

The Huawei Quality award was presented to Mark Thompson, the CEO of Fairchild, on 24 July in Shenzhen.

The key selection criteria was product quality, technical support, and delivery time. Huawei executives singled out the Fairchild FAN5904 synchronous buck converter for GSM/GPRS/EDGE, 3G/3.5G and 4G power amplifiers (PA) as particularly noteworthy, citing its contribution to higher power efficiency and a longer battery operating time for mobile end-products. The FAN5904 has been instrumental in increasing the power efficiency, and hence the competitiveness, of Huawei's wireless routers, for example. In addition, Fairchild has been rated as a "Grade A" supplier by Huawei for five consecutive quarters.

"Fairchild's mobile products are always of a consistently high quality, enabling Huawei to develop differentiated designs for greater market success," noted Mr. Sean Yin, vice president, global procurement qualification department, supply center, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. “The team’s quick response and superb supply-chain management have helped to facilitate our operational efficiency.”

"Huawei is a key Fairchild customer in the Greater China region, and a leading manufacturer of mobile products not only in China, but globally," said Matt Johnson, senior vice president of mobile solutions at Fairchild Semiconductor. "Fairchild is extremely honored to receive this award from Huawei. Fairchild is fully committed to the unique needs of mobile manufacturers, not only in China but worldwide. You see this commitment at work in the close cooperation between our mobile business unit and our Global Mobile Resource Center in Shanghai, which ensures that customer designs are manufactured ‘right the first time.’ Backed by a dedicated sales force that understands the requirements of the mobile market, we are building close customer relationships that ensure the continuity of volume delivery, and continued investment in new technologies."

Fairchild Semiconductor continues to create innovative mobile designs with its wide range of solutions that answer the compelling design challenges of increasing efficiency, reducing board space, preserving signal fidelity and simplifying design. By integrating leading circuit technologies into tiny, advanced packaging, the company offers mobile users advantages while reducing the size, cost, and power of designs. Fairchild engineers work closely with leading mobile manufacturers in order to achieve faster time to market, and to improve performance improvements in subsequent generations.
