mer applications. Together with a development partner, the company has introduced XPOSYS, its single-chip advanced GPS receiver for mobile telephones, smart phones and PDAs; Bluetooth, a computing and telecommunications industry specification that allows mobile phones, computers and PDAs to connect with each other and with home and business phones and computers using a short-range wireless connection. The company offers BlueMoon UniCellular, a Bluetooth-chip which supports the Bluetooth enhanced data rate (EDR) protocol; and Satellite Digital Audio Radio Service (SDARS), a satellite-based radio communication service through which audio programming is digitally transmitted by space-based satellites and terrestrial repeaters to fixed, mobile, and/or portable subscription consumer radios. Customers The company sells its products to customers located mainly in Europe, the United States, the Asia/Pacific region and Japan. Its customers include Bosch, Continental, Avnet, Arrow, WPG Holdings, Siemens, Microsoft Corporation, Gemalto, Giesecke & Devrient and Oberthur Card Systems, U.S. Government Printing Office, LG Electronics, Nokia, Samsung, and Ericsson. Significant Events Wireline Communications: The company, in November 2009, sold its Wireline Communications business. The Wireline Communications business designed, developed, manufactured and marketed a range of ICs, other semiconductors and complete system solutions focused on wireline access applications. The company, in 2009, launched the 600V CoolMOS C6 series of high-performance MOSFETs (metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors). The company, in 2009, introduced new lamp ballast controller that integrates Power Factor Correction (PFC), lamp controller, and high-voltage half-bridge driver functions into a single, compact, surface-mounted package. The company, in 2009, launched the transient voltage suppression (TVS) diode for the protection of antennas in the electronic equipment. The company, in 2009, introduced two new RF-chips for LTE (Long-Term-Evolution) and 3G. The SMARTi LU is a single-chip 65nm CMOS RF transceiver providing 2G/3G/LTE functionality with a DigRF digital baseband interface for data rates of up to 150 Mbps in LTE Networks. The company, in 2009, introduced a family of single-chip WLAN integrated circuits (ICs). The new XWAY WAVE100 ICs provide a solution for wireless network access points. Strategic Alliances In 2009, the company, BMW Forschung und Technik GmbH, Continental AG, Daimler AG, and Bosch had formed the ‘Radar on Chip for Cars’ (RoCC) technology cooperation project. In 2009, the company and Nokia entered into collaboration for Enhanced Data rate for GSM Evolution (EDGE) technology. The company would supply XMM 2130 EDGE platform to Nokia, enabling the mobile device manufacturer to bring internet capable devices to the market. In 2009, the company signed a collaboration contract with Bosch under which it would license to Bosch certain manufacturing processes for power semiconductors. The company, in 2009, announced strategic technology collaboration with Micron for the development of high-density subscriber identity module (HD-SIM) cards with storage capacities above 128 megabytes. The company and Seiko Epson Corporation developed global positioning system (GPS) technology. The new GPS single-chip design, the XPOSYS, is optimized for mobile devices for the consumer market; especially cellular phones with GPS navigation. In April 2010, Fairchild Semiconductor and Infineon Technologies announced a packaging partnership for their power MOSFETs in the MLP 3x3 (Power33 or S3O8) and PowerStage 3x3 packages.
