Profile: Microsemi Corp (MSCC.O)
27 Feb 2017
Microsemi Corporation, incorporated on September 27, 1960, is a designer, manufacturer and marketer of analog and mixed-signal semiconductor solutions. The Company offers a portfolio of semiconductor and system solutions for aerospace and defense, communications, data center and industrial markets. Its products include high-performance and radiation-hardened analog mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs); field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs); system on chip solutions (SoCs); 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; enterprise storage and communication solutions; security technologies; Ethernet solutions; Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) ICs and midspans, and custom design capabilities and services. The Company's products are used in a range of applications, such as communications infrastructure systems, both wireless and wired local area network (LAN) systems; implantable pacemakers and defibrillators; radar systems; military, commercial satellites and aircraft, and enterprise storage and hyperscale data centers.
The Company's Switchtec PFX PCIe switch provides peripheral component interconnect express (PCIe) switch for data center, communications, defense and industrial applications. Its Flashtec NVM Express (NVMe)2032 and NVMe2016 controllers enable the enterprises and data centers to realize the solid state drives (SSDs) utilizing Not And (electronic logic gate) (NAND) technologies. Its Flashtec NVM Express (NVMe)2108 eight channel and NVMe2104 four channel controllers enable the enterprises and data centers to realize high capacity SSDs. Its LiteFast solution, which is a point-to-point serial communication protocol, enables customers to reduce design-in efforts and time to market with its implementation of serial links leveraging Serializer/Deserializer (SerDes) transceiver blocks within its FPGA.
The Company's PDS-EM-8100 PoE 2.5 gigabits per second (Gbps) Multiplexer enables installations of 802.11ac access points with 2.5 Gbps rates without the need to replace the Ethernet switch with a 2.5G NBASE-T interface. Its Chip Scale Atomic Clock (CSAC) components with full operating and storage temperature offer the power holdover atomic clock technology. Its miTimePLL is a family of network synchronization phase-locked loops (PLLs) for Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE), IEEE 1588 and optical transport network (OTN) is designed to address the demands of phase alignment performance required by networks, such as wireless infrastructure.
The Company competes with Altera Corporation, Analog Devices, Inc., Broadcom Limited, Integrated Device Technology, Inc., M/A COM Technology Solutions Inc., Maxim Integrated Products, Inc., Semtech Corp., Silicon Laboratories, Inc., Skyworks Solutions, Inc., Texas Instruments, Inc. and Xilinx, Inc.
