Microsemi Corporation (Microsemi), incorporated on September 27, 1960, is a designer, manufacturer and marketer of high-performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductor solutions. The Company’s products include high-performance and radiation-hardened analog mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs), field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), system on chip solutions (SoCs) and application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs); power management products; timing and synchronization devices and precise time solutions; voice processing devices; radio frequency (RF) solutions; discrete components; security technologies and scalable anti-tamper products; Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) ICs and midspans, as well as custom design capabilities and services.
The principal end markets that the Company serves include aerospace, communications, defense and security, and industrial. Microsemi products are found in applications, such as communications infrastructure systems, both wireless and wired LAN systems; implantable pacemakers and defibrillators; missile systems; military and commercial satellites and aircrafts, oil field equipment and airport security systems. The Company’s SmartFusion2 SoC FPGA Evaluation Kit is a platform designed to enable designers to quickly and easily accelerate evaluation or prototype their application. The Company’s ZL30250 and ZL30251 flexible clock generators are both a jitter solution in a 5x5mm package capable of replacing multiple high performance crystals and crystal oscillators. ZL30252 and ZL30253 are any-to-any frequency clock multiplier and jitter attenuator integrated circuits, featuring jitter performance as a clock multiplier and as a jitter attenuator all in an ultra-small 5x5 mm package, targeted at new applications with tough jitter budgets and tight board real estate restrictions.
Timberwolf platform of Digital Signal Processors enables Microsemi to leverage voice communications to bridge into new and emerging hands-free applications that require clear speech, free of noise and echo. ZL38040, powered by Microsemi’s AcuEdge acoustic technology, delivers voice communication solutions for the enterprise hands-free speakerphone markets. The Company's SmartFusion2 150K LE SoC FPGA Advanced Development Kit enables board-level designers and system architects to quickly develop system-level designs by using the two FPGA Mezzanine Card expansion headers to connect a range of new functions with off-the-shelf daughter cards, which is used to create new applications for communications, industrial, defense and aerospace markets.
The Company competes with Altera Corporation; Texas Instruments, Inc.; Integrated Device Technology, Inc.; Linear Technology Corp.; M/A COM Technology Solutions Inc.; Maxim Integrated Products, Inc.; Micrel Incorporated; Semtech Corp.; Silicon Laboratories, Inc.; Skyworks Solutions, Inc., and Xilinx, Inc.
