Intersil Corporation designs and develops power management and precision analog integrated circuits (ICs). The company supplies power management and precision analog technology for many of the most rigorous applications in the infrastructure, industrial, automotive, military, aerospace, computing, and consumer markets. It supplies a range of power IC solutions for battery management, processor power management, and display power management, including power regulators, converters and controllers, as well as fully integrated power modules. The company also provides precision analog components, such as amplifiers and buffers, proximity and light sensors, data converters, optoelectronics, video decoders and interface products. Strategy The key elements of the company’s strategy are to expand its presence in power management for industrial and infrastructure applications; establish leadership in power management for mobile applications; and extend its leadership in targeted applications in the automotive and aerospace markets. Products and Technology The company has various core technologies that allow it to deliver differentiated products to the market place. These products address opportunities that the company divides into two market categories, such as industrial and infrastructure; and computing & consumer. Industrial and Infrastructure Power products include majority of the company’s industrial and infrastructure products – digital power controllers, modules and switching regulators, as well as other general purpose power devices. In automotive, the company is targeting both infotainment and power applications. The company’s video decoders form a primary building block for console displays and rear view camera display that are becoming a common safety feature in mid- to high-end vehicles. The company is applying its power management technology to expand its presence in infotainment and other opportunities within the automobile passenger cabin, and addressing the growing market for battery management within hybrid and fully electric vehicles. Its radiation-hardened products offer advantages for the most rigorous applications, including commercial aerospace, and make up another large component of the company’s industrial and infrastructure revenue. Its products in this category also enable multiple functions in hundreds of other industrial systems from factory automation to test and measurement equipment. Computing and Consumer The company offers computing and consumer devices. It maintains presence among the providers of consumer electronics. One distributor, Avnet, Inc., represented 20.7% of revenue during 2015, and 17.8% of trade receivables as of January 1, 2016. Markets and Customers The company sells its products through its direct geographical salesforce and a network of distributors. Its direct geographical salesforce operates in the North American, European, Japanese and the Asia/Pacific markets. The direct geographical salesforce works closely with a network of distributors, value-added resellers and manufacturers’ representatives, creating a worldwide selling network. Acquisitions In 2015, the company acquired Great Wall Semiconductor Corporation (GWS) that manufacturer s metal oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors. The company acquired GWS to broaden its product portfolio to serve its customers who purchase certain commercial and radiation-hardened power management products.
