Founded by a group of Texas Instruments employees
with extensive experience in the areas of surface acoustic wave (SAW),
device research, design, development, applications, and manufacturing.
From the onset, the company's goals were to become the leading supplier
of both military and commercial high-performance SAW components
while advancing SAW technology.
After more than 20 years of dedication, Sawtek is now recognized
as a global leader for high performance SAW components and subsystems.
Sawtek is the dominant global high-volume SAW supplier
to the CDMA handset market as well as the CDMA and GSM base station markets.
While continuing to expand its high-volume consumer applications business,
Sawtek retains its unique ability to offer custom designs
for both Military/Space and emerging market applications.
