Microchip Technology Incorporated develops, manufactures, and sells specialized semiconductor products used by customers for various embedded control applications. The company’s product portfolio comprises general purpose and specialized 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit microcontrollers, a spectrum of high-performance linear, mixed-signal, power management, thermal management, RF, safety, security, wired connectivity and wireless connectivity devices, as well as serial EEPROMs, Serial Flash memories, Parallel Flash memories and serial SRAM memories. The company also licenses Flash-IP solutions that are incorporated in a range of products. Its synergistic product portfolio targets various applications worldwide. Microcontrollers The company offers a family of proprietary general purpose microcontroller products marketed under the PIC brand name. It also offers specialized microcontrollers for automotive networking, computing, lighting, power supplies, wireless communication and wireless audio applications. With approximately 1,300 microcontrollers in its product portfolio, the company targets the 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit microcontroller markets. Development Tools The company offers a set of application development tools. These tools enable system designers to program PIC microcontrollers for specific applications. The company’s family of development tools for its PIC products range from entry-level systems, which include an assembler and programmer or in-circuit debugging hardware, to fully configured systems that provide in-circuit emulation capability. The company also offers a suite of compilers, software code configurators and simulators. Analog, Interface and Mixed Signal Products The company’s analog, interface and mixed signal products consist of various families with approximately 1,500 power management, linear, mixed-signal, high voltage, thermal management, RF, drivers, safety and security, USB, Ethernet, wireless and other interface products. The company markets and sells its analog, interface and mixed signal products into its microcontroller customer base, to customers who use microcontrollers from other suppliers and to customers who use other products that may not fit its traditional microcontroller and memory products customer base. The company markets these, and all of its products, based on an application segment approach targeted to provide customers with application solutions. Memory Products The company’s memory products consist of serial electrically erasable programmable read-only memory (referred to as Serial EEPROMs), Serial Flash memories, Parallel Flash memories and Serial SRAM memories. Serial EEPROMs, Serial Flash memories and Serial SRAM have a very low I/O pin requirement, permitting production of very small footprint devices. The company sells its memory products primarily into the embedded control market, complementing its microcontroller offerings. Technology Licensing The company’s technology licensing business includes license fees and royalties associated with technology licenses for the use of SuperFlash embedded flash and Smartbits one time programmable NVM technologies. The company licenses NVM technologies to foundries, integrated device manufacturers and design partners worldwide for use in the manufacture of their advanced microcontroller products, gate array, RF and analog products that require embedded non-volatile memory. Research and Development For the year ended March 31, 2015, the company’s research and development expenses were $349.5 million. Sales and Distribution The company markets and sells its products worldwide primarily through a network of direct sales personnel and distributors.
