Analog Devices (NASDAQ: ADI) is a world leader in the design, manufacture, and marketing of a broad portfolio of high performance analog, mixed-signal, and digital signal processing (DSP) integrated circuits (ICs) used in virtually all types of electronic equipment. Since our inception in 1965, we have focused on solving the engineering challenges associated with signal processing in electronic equipment. Used by over 100,000 customers worldwide, our signal processing products play a fundamental role in converting, conditioning, and processing real-world phenomena such as temperature, pressure, sound, light, speed, and motion into electrical signals to be used in a wide array of electronic devices. We focus on key strategic markets where our signal processing technology is often a critical differentiator in our customers' products, namely the industrial, automotive, communications, and consumer markets.
We currently produce a wide range of innovative products—including data converters, amplifiers and linear products, radio frequency (RF) ICs, power management products, sensors based on microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology and other sensors, and processing products, including DSP and other processors—that are designed to meet the needs of our broad base of customers.
The memory industry is forecast to play a critical role in enabling trends towards automation and data exchange. With new technologies and processes from Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Internet of Things (IoT), Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) Cloud Computing, Cognitive computing and artificial intelligence relying on memory such as DRAM and Flash Storage to enhance capability and capture data, as a result memory is now more relevant than ever.
Partnering with a specialist who can provide you with access to world-class technology and support along with foresight on where the technology trends and market volatility will impact your designs and productions requirements, offers a significant competitive advantage.
