Profile: Monolithic Power Systems Inc (MPWR.OQ)
Monolithic Power Systems, Inc., incorporated on February 26, 2004, designs, develops and markets integrated power semiconductor solutions and power delivery architectures. The Company provides power solutions for systems found in industrial applications, telecommunication infrastructures, cloud computing, automotive and consumer applications. The Company operates in the design, development, marketing and sale of high-performance power solutions for the communications, storage and computing, consumer and industrial markets segment. The Company has approximately two primary product families that address multiple applications within the communications, storage and computing, consumer and industrial markets. Its product families include Direct Current (DC) to DC Products, and Lighting Control Products and alternating current (AC)/DC Offline Solutions.
The Company's DC to DC integrated circuits (ICs) are used to convert and control voltages within a range of electronic systems, such as portable electronic devices, wireless local area network (LAN) access points, computers, monitors, automobiles and medical equipment. Lighting control ICs are used in backlighting and general illumination products. Lighting control ICs for backlighting are used in systems that provide the light source for liquid crystal display (LCD) panels typically found in notebook computers, LCD monitors, car navigation systems and LCD televisions. Backlighting solutions are either white light emitting diode (WLED) lighting sources or cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL). In addition to AC/DC offline solutions for lighting illumination applications, the Company also offers AC/DC power conversion solutions for end products that plug into a wall outlet.
The Company offers networking and telecommunication infrastructure, routers and modems, wireless access points and voice over Internet protocol (IP) for communications applications; storage networks, computers and notebooks, printers, servers and workstations for storage and computing applications; set-top boxes, televisions, monitors, gaming, lighting, chargers, home appliances, cellular handsets, digital video players, global positioning system (GPS) and infotainment systems, stereos and cameras for consumer applications, and automotive, power sources, security, point-of-sale systems and industrial meters for industrial applications.
The Company competes with Analog Devices, Fairchild Semiconductor, Intersil Corporation, Linear Technology, Maxim Integrated Products, Microchip Technology, Microsemi Corporation, O2 Micro International, Ltd., ON Semiconductor, Power Integrations, Inc., Richtek Technology Corporation, Rohm Co., Ltd., Semtech Corporation, STMicroelectronics N.V. and Texas Instruments Inc.
