Semtech Corporation, incorporated on December 19, 1960, is a global supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductor products. The Company designs, develops and markets a range of products for commercial applications, which are sold into the enterprise computing, communications, consumer and industrial end-markets. Its product lines include Signal Integrity, Protection, Wireless and Sensing, and Power and High-Reliability. Applications for the industrial market include video broadcast studio equipment, automated meter reading, smart grid, wireless charging, military and aerospace, medical, security systems, automotive, Internet of Things (IoT), industrial and home automation, video security and surveillance, and other industrial equipment. Enterprise computing end-markets include desktops, notebooks, servers, graphic boards, printers, monitors, datacenter related equipment, passive optical networks, storage networks and computer peripherals. Communications end-market applications include wireless base stations, long-haul optical networks, carrier networks, switches and routers, cable modems, signal conditioners, wireless local area network (LAN) and other communication infrastructure equipment.
Signal Integrity Products
The Company designs, develops and markets a portfolio of optical communications, broadcast video, surveillance video, active cable transceiver and backplane products used in a range of enterprise computing, industrial, communications and consumer applications. Its portfolio of integrated circuits (ICs) for optical transceivers, backplane applications and high-speed interfaces ranges from 100 megabits per second (Mbps) to 100 gigabits per second (Gbps) and supports industry standards, such as Fibre Channel, Infiniband, Ethernet, passive optical networks (PON) and Synchronous Optical Networking (SONET). Its broadcast video products offer solutions for video formats, ever increasing data rates and evolving input/output (I/O) and distance requirements.
The Company designs, develops and markets protection devices, which are referred to as transient voltage suppressors (TVS). TVS devices provide protection for electronic systems where voltage spikes (called transients), such as electrostatic discharge (ESD), electrical over stress (EOS) or secondary lightning surge energy, can permanently damage sensitive complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) ICs. Its portfolio of protection solutions include filter and termination devices that are integrated with the TVS device. Its products provide protection while preserving signal integrity in high-speed communications, networking and video interfaces. Its protection products are found in a range of applications, including smart phones, liquid crystal display (LCD) televisions (TVs), set-top boxes, tablets, computers, notebooks, base stations, routers, automobile and industrial instruments.
Wireless and Sensing Products
The Company designs, develops and markets a portfolio of radio frequency products used in a range of industrial, medical and communications applications, and sensing products used in industrial and consumer applications. Its sensing interface platforms can interface to any sensor and output digital data in any form. The proximity sensing solution of its devices enables user interface solutions for mobile and consumer products. Its wireless and sensing products can be found in a range of applications in the industrial, medical and consumer markets.
Power and High-Reliability Products
The Company designs, develops and markets power product devices that control, alter, regulate and condition the power within electronic systems. The product types within the power product line include switching voltage regulators, combination switching and linear regulators, smart regulators, charge pumps and wireless charging. Its Power products feature integrated functionality for the communications, industrial and computing markets, and small form factor products for mobile phones, notebook computers, computer peripherals and other consumer devices. The primary application for these products is power regulation for enterprise computing, communications, consumer and industrial systems. Its discrete semiconductor products consist of rectifiers, assemblies (packaged discrete rectifiers) and other products that are used to convert alternating currents into direct currents, and to protect circuits against high voltage spikes or high current surges. Its products are found in a range of applications, including industrial, military, medical, automotive, aerospace and defense systems, including satellite communications.
The Company competes with STMicroelectronics, NXP Semiconductors N.V., ON Semiconductor Corporation, Infineon Technologies AG, Texas Instruments Incorporated, Maxim Integrated Products, Inc., MACOM Technology Solutions Holdings, Inc., Inphi Corporation, Broadcom Limited, Applied MicroCircuits Corporation, Linear Technology Corporation, Microsemi Corporation, Monolithic Power Systems, Silicon Laboratories, Atmel Corporation, Analog Devices Inc. and Cypress Semiconductor Corp.
