Fairchild Semiconductor International, Inc. engages in the development, manufacture, and sale of power management solutions. The company also offers certain non-power semiconductor and MEMS-based solutions. Its products are used in various end market applications, including industrial, home appliance, automotive, mobile, server and cloud computing, lighting, and consumer electronics. Products and Technology The company’s two main product segments are the Switching Power Solutions segment (SPS) and the Analog Power and Signal Solutions segment (APSS). Its third reportable segment is the Standard Products Group (SPG), which contains various mature, standard products. The company develops a range of power and signal path products. It invests in wafer fabrication and packaging technology to support the development of these products. SPS The SPS segment contains the company’s low and high voltage switch operating segments, integrated power modules, as well as its automotive and cloud operating segments. This segment provides a range of discrete and integrated power management solutions across a range of end markets. The company designs, manufactures, and markets analog and mixed signal integrated circuits (ICs), multi-chip smart power modules and discrete power products that provide a range of power management functions to a set of end market applications, including automotive, industrial, home appliances, mobile, server and cloud computing and consumer electronics. The company’s discrete devices are individual diodes or transistors that perform power switching, power conditioning and signal amplification functions in electronic circuits. It manufactures high voltage discrete products using vertical Diffusion Metal Oxide Semiconductor (DMOS) MOSFETs, insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBT), bipolar (Bi) and ultrafast rectifier technologies. The company manufactures analog and mixed signal ICs using various Bi, complementary metal oxide (CMOS), BiCMOS, and bipolar/CMOS/DMOS (BCDMOS) processes up to 1200V and down to 0.35µm (microns) minimum geometry. Power MOSFETs are used in applications to switch, shape or transfer energy. These products are used in various high-growth applications, including solar inverters, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), data centers and communications, motors, lighting, automotive, computing, displays, and industrial supplies. The company produces advanced power MOSFETs under its SupreMOS, SuperFET, PowerTrench, UniFET and QFET brands. IGBTs are high-voltage power discrete devices. They are used in switching applications for solar inverters, UPS, data centers and communications, motors, power supplies, displays, TVs, and automotive ignition systems. These applications require lower switching frequencies, higher power, and/or higher voltages than a power MOSFET can provide. The company operates as a supplier of IGBTs. It has developed various planar and trench IGBT technologies for these applications. The company’s premier product is the STEALTH rectifier, providing performance and efficiencies in data communications, industrial power supply, displays, TVs, and motor applications. Utilizing the company’s power MOSFET and IGBT technologies, it also designs and manufactures modules for the industrial, automotive, and home appliance end markets. The company designs, manufactures, and sells a family of proprietary, SPM brand smart power module products targeted at various end applications in consumer white goods and industrial applications, such as room air conditioners, industrial power supplies, solar inverters, pumps, and industrial motors. These are multi-chip modules containing up to 28 components in a single package that includes diodes, power discrete IGBTs or MOSFETs, high voltage power management driver ICs, and current and temperature sensors. Similar modules, called Automotive Power Modules (APMs), are used in automotive applications. These products provide customers with a fully integrated power management solution designed to increase power efficiency, power density, system reliability, system functionality, and reduce engineering development time.
