Fairchild Launches Complete USB Type-C Portfolio Focusing on Smallest Footprint and Lowest Power

Fairchild launched a comprehensive portfolio of USB Type-C™ solutions that enable manufacturers to quickly and easily add the next generation of USB functionality to smartphones, computers, power adapters and other devices with a USB port. Compared to alternatives, the smaller size and lower power requirements of Fairchild’s USB Type-C solutions help manufacturers to develop thinner, sleeker devices that consume less system power for better energy efficiency. Fairchild’s USB Type-C solutions meet a wide variety of application requirements to give manufacturers more choice and flexibility in selecting the device with the best mix of capabilities for their product. Several of Fairchild’s USB Type-C solutions perform basic features such as detect attachment, orientation and device type (Dual Role Port, Downstream Facing Port, and Upstream Facing Port), while others support more advanced functionality. These advanced functions include data role swap, power role swap, hard reset, soft reset, active cable support, Vendor Defined Messaging (VDM) packet transmission and high power charging up to 100W. The new USB Type-C solutions are easier to integrate into product designs due to their small footprint. In particular, the FUSB302 comes in a miniscule 1.2 mm x 1.3 mm WLCSP package, which is several times smaller than competing offerings, to give manufacturers more flexibility in their size constrained designs. Fairchild’s USB Type-C solutions use an I2C interface to communicate with the application’s host processor for control and command, negating the need for an integrated microprocessor. This system partitioning enables Fairchild to offer the lowest-power, as well as the smallest size, and flexibility.

Fairchild Semiconductor International Inc. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 28, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Third Quarter of 2015

Fairchild Semiconductor International Inc. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended June 28, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported total revenue of $355.2 million, operating income of $3.4 million, income before income tax of $1.8 million and net loss of $0.9 million or $0.01 per basic and diluted share against total revenue of $371.6 million, operating income of $19.3 million, income before income tax of $16.7 million and net income of $17.8 million or $0.14 per basic and diluted share for the same period a year ago. Adjusted net income was $13.9 million or $0.12 per diluted share against $25.2 million or $0.20 per diluted share for the same period a year ago. Cash provided by operating activities was $48.5 million against $84.8 million a year ago. Capital expenditure was $14.6 million against $15.2 million a year ago. Free cash flow was $33.9 million against $69.6 million a year ago. For the six months, the company reported total revenue of $710.9 million, operating income of $9.6 million, income before income tax of $6.8 million and net income of $0.2 million or $0.00 per basic and diluted share against total revenue of $715.7 million, operating income of $12.2 million, income before income tax of $8.5 million and net loss of $8.5 million or $0.07 per basic and diluted share for the same period a year ago. Adjusted net income was $27.2 million or $0.23 per basic and diluted share against adjusted $30.1 million or $0.24 per basic and diluted share for the same period a year ago. Cash provided by operating activities was $33.9 million against $93.4 million for the same period a year ago. Capital expenditure was $29.0 million against $28.9 million for the same period a year ago. Free cash flow was $4.9 million against $64.5 million a year ago. For the third quarter of 2015, the company expects sales to be in the range of $355 to $375 million. The company expects adjusted gross margin to be 34.0 to 35.0% due primarily to lower manufacturing unit costs and improved product mix. The company expects R&D and SG&A spending to be $95 to $97 million due primarily to lower legal spending, normal seasonality and cost controls. The adjusted tax rate is forecast at 12% plus negative 3% points for the quarter.

Fairchild Launches MEMS Product Line with Introduction of Intelligent Inertial Measurement Unit with High Performance 9-Axis Sensor Fusion

Fairchild launched the FIS1100 6-axis MEMS Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), the company’s first MEMS product stemming from its strategic investments in MEMS and motion tracking. The FIS1100 IMU integrates a proprietary AttitudeEngine™ motion processor with best-in-class 9-axis sensor fusion algorithms to provide designers with an easy to implement, system-level solution for superior user experiences with up to ten times lower processing power consumption in a wide range of motion enabled, battery-powered applications. The FIS1100 IMU, with its built in AttitudeEngine motion processor and XKF3 senor fusion, is a low power, highly accurate system solution that provides customers with the always-on sensor technology required for a range of application such as wearable sensors for sports, fitness, and health; pedestrian navigation; autonomous robots; and virtual and augmented reality. The AttitudeEngine processes 6-axis inertial data at a high rate internally and outputs to the host processor at a lower rate matching the application needs, eliminating the necessity for high-frequency interrupts. This allows the system processor to remain in sleep-mode longer, providing consumers longer battery life without any compromises in functionality or accuracy. The bundled XKF3 high-performance 9-axis sensor fusion algorithms combine inertial sensor data from the on-chip gyroscopes and accelerometers and data from an external magnetometer. The sensor fusion also includes background auto calibration that enables excellent performance in terms of accuracy, consistency, and fluidity. When combined with the XKF3 sensor fusion algorithms, the FIS1100 is the world’s first complete consumer inertial measurement unit with orientation (quaternion) specifications, featuring pitch and roll accuracy of ±3° and yaw accuracy of ±5°. The FIS1100 uses Fairchild’s proprietary MEMS process, designed specifically for inertial sensors. The process features several design elements for optimal performance, size and robustness. These include 60µm device layer with high-aspect ratio, through silicon via (TSV) interconnects and vertical electrodes, as well as a single die gyroscope and accelerometer with a unique dual vacuum design. The FIS1100 comes in a 3.3 x 3.3 x 1 mm package and is available for immediate customer sampling and order placement.
