Linear Technology Corporation, incorporated on October 20, 2000, is engaged in designing, manufacturing and marketing a line of analog integrated circuits. The Company produces power management, data conversion, signal conditioning, radio frequency (RF) and interface integrated circuits (ICs) and wireless sensor network products, among others. The Company's principal product categories include amplifiers, high speed amplifiers, voltage regulators, voltage references, interfaces, data converters, battery stack monitors, silicon oscillators and timer blox, phase locked loop (PLL) synthesizers and clock distribution, SmartMesh embedded wireless sensor network, radio and microwave frequency circuits, Power Over Ethernet (PoE) Controllers, and Other. The Company's products provide a bridge between analog world and the digital electronics in communications, networking, industrial, transportation, computer, medical, instrumentation, consumer, and military and aerospace systems.
Silicon Oscillators and Timer Blox circuit provides a range of timing functions and clock signals for frequencies ranging from less than 1 hertz up to 170 megahertz. SmartMesh IP and SmartMesh WirelessHART product consists of low power electronic components, board level products, and software. SmartMesh sensor networks consist of 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 and control of physical attributes, such as temperature, pressure, light, sound and motion.
The Company for industrial/medical market offers products, which include wireless sensor networks, position/pressure/temperature sensing and controls, energy management/harvesting, scanning electron microscopes, voltmeters/multimeters/ oscilloscopes/curve tracers and infusion pumps. The Company for space/military/harsh environment market offers products, which include sonar systems, firing controls, ground support equipment, guidance and navigation systems, surveillance equipment and radar systems. The Company for automotive market offers products, which include headlamps, navigation and safety system, electronic steering and braking, antenna power supplies, daytime running lights, hybrid/electric vehicle battery systems and emission controls. The Company for communications market offers products, which include smart phones, point-to-point wireless modems, cable modems/networks, Internet appliances, Power over Ethernet and cellular phones. The Company for computer/high-end consumer market also offers various products, which include desktop computers, communications/interface modems, workstations, digital still cameras, video/multimedia systems, digital video recorders and notebook computers.
The Company's SmartMesh IP and SmartMesh WirelessHART technology offers 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. The Company's wafer fabrication facilities are located in Camas, Washington (Camas) and Milpitas, California (Hillview). In addition to wafer fabrication facilities, the Company has an assembly and test facility located in Malaysia and a test and distribution facility located in Singapore.
