Linear Technology Corporation engages in the design, manufacture, and marketing of a line of high performance analog integrated circuits worldwide. The company’s products provide an essential bridge between analog world and the digital electronics in communications, networking, industrial, automotive, computer, medical, instrumentation, consumer, and military and aerospace systems. It produces power management, data conversion, signal conditioning, RF and interface ICs, µModule subsystems, and wireless sensor network products. Products and Markets The company emphasizes standard products and multi-customer application specific products to address larger markets and to reduce the risk of dependency upon a single customer’s requirements. The company targets the high performance segment of the analog integrated circuit market. The company’s SmartMesh IP and SmartMesh WirelessHART technology offers complete wireless network based solutions using low power electronic components, board level products with mesh networking and software addressing high level applications such as industrial process automation, data center energy management, building energy management, renewable energy monitoring, and transportation management systems. Amplifiers: These circuits amplify the output voltage or current of a device. High Speed Amplifiers: These amplifiers are used to amplify signals from 5 megahertz to 2 Gigahertz for applications, such as video, fast data acquisition, and wireless communications. Voltage Regulators: Voltage regulators deliver a controlled voltage to power electronic systems. This category of product consists primarily of two types, the linear regulator and the switch-mode regulator. Switch-mode regulators are also used to convert voltage up or down within an electronic system for power management and battery charging. Voltage References: These circuits serve as electronic benchmarks providing a constant voltage for measurement systems usage. Interface: Interface circuits act as an intermediary to transfer digital signals between or within electronic systems. These circuits are used in computers, modems, instruments, networking equipment, and remote data acquisition systems. Data Converters: These circuits change linear (analog) signals into digital signals, or vice versa, and are referred to as data acquisition subsystems, A/D converters and D/A converters. Battery Stack Monitors: These circuits monitor the voltage on individual battery cells that are connected in series. High voltage battery strings are used in electric and hybrid electric vehicles, battery back-up systems, portable power systems, and other high power battery systems. Silicon Oscillators and Timer Blox: These general purpose circuits provide a range of timing functions and clock signals for frequencies ranging from approximately 1Hz up to 170MHz. Phase Locked Loop (PLL) Synthesizers and Clock Distribution: A PLL locks the phase and frequency of a higher frequency device (usually a voltage controlled oscillator) to a lower frequency device. As a black box, the PLL could be viewed as a frequency multiplier. Applications include wireless/optical communications and networking, medical devices, and instrumentation. SmartMesh Embedded Wireless Sensor Network: SmartMeshIP and SmartMesh WirlessHART products consist of low power electronic components, board level products, and software. SmartMesh sensor networks include a self-forming mesh of nodes, or ‘motes’, which collect and relay data, and a network manager that monitors and manages network performance and sends data to the host application, enabling wireless monitoring/control of physical attributes, such as temperature, pressure, light, sound and motion. Isolated µModule Transceivers: Isolated µModule transceivers use magnetically coupled technology to provide data and power isolation in a system in a package module. They integrate inductive/magnetic components, dedicated IC functions and power on a single substrate printed circuit board, all encapsulated in a standard plastic package. Radio Frequency Circuits: These circuits include mixers, modulators, dem
