Fairchild Semiconductor International, Inc. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 29, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Second Quarter of 2015

Fairchild Semiconductor International Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 29, 2015. The company reported first quarter net income of $1.1 million or $0.01 per diluted share compared to net losses of $42.7 million or $0.36 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $9.3 million or $0.07 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2014. Adjusted net income was $13.3 million or $0.11 per diluted share, compared to $11.9 million or $0.10 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $4.9 million or $0.04 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2014. Free cash flow was a negative $29 million due to normal year-end cash compensation expenses, compared to $5.1 million a year ago. Total revenue was $355.7 million compared to $344.1 million a year ago. Operating income was $6.2 million compared to loss of $7.1 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was $5.0 million compared to loss of $8.2 million a year ago. Net cash used in operating activities was $14.6 million compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $8.6 million a year ago. Capital expenditure was $14.4 million compared to $13.7 million a year ago. The company expected sales to be in the range of $360 to $380 million for the second quarter. Adjusted gross margin to be 33.5 to 34.5% due primarily to higher factory loadings from the prior quarter and improved product mix. R&D and SG&A spending to be $97 to $99 million due primarily to the annual merit increase, higher variable compensation and temporarily higher legal spending in connection with upcoming patent trials. The adjusted tax rate is forecast at 12% plus or minus 3 percentage points for the quarter.

Fairchild Addresses Advanced Needs of Automakers and Their Parts Suppliers with New Automotive Qualified SuperFET® II MOSFET and High Voltage Rectifier Product

Fairchild addressing the advanced needs of automakers and their parts suppliers with new automotive qualified SuperFET® II MOSFET and High Voltage Rectifier product families, both of which enable cleaner and smarter vehicles overall and are ideal for increasing the power ratings of onboard chargers and DC-to-DC converters used in hybrid, plug-in hybrid and all-electric vehicles. Fairchild’s AEC-Q101 qualified 650V SuperFET II MOSFET family is comprised of 9 devices in a wide range ofpackage options and covering an industry-low 41 mOhm RDS(on), enabling customers to reduce both switching and conduction losses. The 650V SuperFET® II MOSFET family is well suited for hybrid and plug-in electric vehicles as its low specific resistance and excellent switching performance enable high levels of efficiency. The new family uses the latest super-junction technology to enable both a small form factor and greater efficiency while its robust built-in diode at high dv/dt conditions can improve bridge circuit reliability. Additionally, the 650V SuperFET II MOSFET familys body-diode performance enables manufacturers to achieve superior switching performance with low electromagnetic interference (EMI). This is important as hybrid and plug-in electric vehicles are inherently harsh EMI environments and adding as little additional EMI as possible is an advantage to improve the whole system reliability. Complementing the 650V SuperFET II MOSFETs is Fairchilds family of automotive High Voltage Rectifiers, which combine outstanding performance with automotive-level reliability. The family is qualified to meet the industrys AEC-Q101 specification and available in a broad range of voltage and current ratings, which makes them ideal for the on-board chargers of plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles, as well as DC to DC converters, stationary chargers and other high-voltage powertrain applications. This product family is currently divided into three technology platforms Ultrafast, Hyperfast and STEALTHTM that were designed considering the trade-offs between switching loss and conduction loss. Ultrafast has the lowest VF (forward voltage), which makes it suitable for low switching frequency applications and applications without a strict EMI requirement. The Hyperfast devices have lower turn off time for faster switching applications such as PFC stages and secondary rectification stage of onboard charger. Stealth rectifiers are faster than the Hyperfast and offer soft recovery to reduce noise and ringing at the cost of a somewhat higher VF (compared to Ultrafast) and higher reverse recovery charge Qrr (compared to Hyperfast). They are also suitable for high switch frequency applications with an EMI requirement, such as PFC. Fairchilds nine new automotive High Voltage Rectifiers are available with breakdown voltages of 600V and 1000V, forward currents from 15A to 80A and multiple package options, including TO247, TO220 and die sales (wafer, Tape &Reel and Known Good Die). With these new additions, Fairchild’s portfolio of automotive qualified rectifier is made up of twenty-two products. Fairchild can also customize these devices to suit manufacturers specific needs, such as custom dies and breakdown voltages.

Fairchild Expands Line of Extended Temperature (ET) Mid-Voltage MOSFETs, Which Can Operate at 175° C

Fairchild is enabling manufacturers to improve the reliability and performance of their products with its expanded line of extended temperature (ET) mid-voltage MOSFETs, which can operate at 175° C. The higher operating temperatures enable up to 85% greater power density and three times more reliability than MOSFETs rated to the 150° C industry standard. This new family of ET MOSFETs aligns with the IPC-9592 power conversion standard, which means the maximum junction temperature can be up to 150° C, as opposed to 125° C for standard 150° C MOSFETs, to enable more design margin. The family includes 19 new devices, available in both 5mm x 6mm and 3mm x 3mm standard packages, as well as the new TO-Leadless (TO-LL) package. The devices are offered in a wide range of voltage ratings, including 30V, 40V, 60V, 80V, 100V, 120V and 150V. Their outstanding combination of superior heat tolerance, greater power density and improved reliability make Fairchild™s ET MOSFET family ideal for DC-to-DC power supplies, AC-to-DC power supplies and motor drives used in a variety of applications, including avionics, micro solar inverters, power tools and telecommunications. The ability to operate at 175° C makes these new ET MOSFETs particularly suited for products that must operate in high ambient temperatures, such as solar power and power-over-Ethernet (POE) applications. Additionally, the substantially greater reliability of the devices is an advantage for products used in harsh environments, including avionics, railway and power tool applications. Complementing the extended temperature range, the higher power density in very small packages is a key advantage as it gives manufacturers greater flexibility with their product designs. It allows designers to either decrease the form factors of their products " while maintaining the same power output" or to increase the power output without having to increase size. Fairchild is exhibiting in booth 905 at APEC 2015 in Charlotte North Carolina, from March 16 to 19.
