rt multiple air-interfaces in cellular networks, such as LTE, HSPA+, TD-SCDMA, CDMA2000K, and WiMAX, at major wireless infrastructure original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) worldwide. Analog and Mixed-Signal Products The company’s portfolio features a variety of differentiated products for driving actuators (such as in motors, valves, and lights), switching large currents, regulating power to electronic components in a system, charging and cell balancing batteries, providing functional safety (self monitoring and redundant failsafe backup) for safety critical applications, and providing precision sense and control interfaces for complex analog systems. The product portfolio includes a range of system-on-a-chip solutions that allow the integration of digital processing logic in conjunction with analog functionality. Its 77 GHz radar products enable the convergence of active and passive safety systems in automobiles. Sensors Sensors serve as a primary interface in embedded systems for advanced human interface and contextual awareness that mimic the human ‘5 senses’ interaction with the external environment. The company provides various categories of semiconductor-based environmental and inertial sensors, including pressure, inertial, magnetic, proximity and gyroscopic sensors that provide orientation detection, gesture recognition, tilt to scroll functionality and position detection in mobile devices and gaming applications. Radio Frequency Devices The company has a portfolio of high power RF amplifiers, serving markets such as wireless infrastructure, broadcast, military, medical, radars, air traffic control, land mobile markets, general industrial, among others. The entire RF power portfolio includes solutions from 1 watt to approximately 1 kilowatt. Its low power portfolio provides a mix of RF small signal and low power products ranging from general purpose amplifiers, gain blocks, and signal control products to feature-rich, low noise amplifiers and high-performance RF integrated circuits. Sales and Marketing The company sells its products directly to OEMs, distributors, original design manufacturers and contract manufacturers. As of December 31, 2013, the company had 51 sales offices located in 19 countries. Its product sales were into the Asia-Pacific; Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA); Americas and Japan regions.
