Maxim Integrated Products
Linear, Mixed-Signal Circuits
Maxim's mission is to continuously invent high-quality analog engineering solutions that add value to our customers' microprocessor-based electronics Worldwide. We have consistently increased our stockholders' equity by meeting our cost and performance goals, minimizing time-to-market, and maximizing our engineering productivity.
Linear / Mixed-Signal Integrated Circuits
What We Do
Established in 1983, Maxim Integrated Products is a worldwide leader in design, development, and manufacture of linear and mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs). Maxim circuits "connect" the real world and digital world by detecting, measuring, amplifying, and converting real-world signals, such as temperature, pressure, or sound, into the digital signals necessary for computer processing.
Products and Applications
Our products include data converters, interface circuits, microprocessor supervisors, operational amplifiers, power supplies, multiplexers, switches, battery chargers, battery management circuits, RF wireless circuits, fiber optic transceivers, sensors, and voltage references. Maxim markets approximately 5,000 analog ICs — more than any other company in our industry. Our products are used in a wide variety of microprocessor-based electronics equipment, including personal computers and peripherals, process control, instrumentation, test equipment, handheld devices, wireless and fiber communications, and video displays.
Net revenues were $1.439 billion for the year ended June 26, 2004. The Company has over 7,500 employees. Our headquarters is in Sunnyvale, California, and we have facilities in San Jose, California; Dallas and San Antonio, Texas; Beaverton, Oregon; Cavite, the Philippines; Chonburi Province, Thailand; and other locations worldwide. Maxim stock is listed as MXIM on the NASDAQ exchange.
About Dallas Semiconductor
Dallas Semiconductor was founded in 1984, went public in 1987, and became a wholly owned subsidiary of Maxim Integrated Products in 2001.
Consistent with Maxim's corporate mission, Dallas Semiconductor combines innovative circuit designs with proprietary fab processes to create mixed-signal semiconductor products that serve diverse end markets. In addition, the Company uses design and manufacturing expertise in module assembly and innovative packaging techniques to further differentiate some of its products.
With over 1,200 employees and its own wafer fabrication facility at the main campus in Dallas, Texas, the Company has successfully introduced hundreds of base products having thousands of variations.
Products Dallas Semiconductor organizes its products into over 40 product lines that are managed by 6 different business units. Business units and selected product lines include:
