Established in 1996, Silicon Laboratories, Inc. is a leading global provider of silicon-based products. The fabless chipmaker maintains a headquarters in Austin, Texas, and conducts its international operations from a Singaporean complex. The company employs 1,700 people worldwide, and has a presence in Canada, France, Denmark, India, Hungary, Finland, and Norway.
Silicon Labs has partnerships with firms operating in the automotive, entertainment, HVAC, data center, smart home, Internet of Things (IoT), retail, and industrial fields. The firm’s lineup includes wireless connectivity products, mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs), sensors, microcontrollers, buffers, oscillators, jitter attenuators, isolators, FM radios, data and voice modems, power management ICs, and demodulators.
Since its founding over two decades ago, Silicon Labs has strived to make the world a more connected, efficient, and environmentally-friendly place. In pursuit of that goal, the firm established a reputation as a true innovator within the semiconductor industry. The company proved its bona fides early on by unveiling a data access arrangement (DAA) design that beat competing products on footprint and cost.
That product launch enabled Silicon Labs to grow its annual revenue from $5.6 million to $47 million in one year. Today, the firm’s yearly gross income exceeds $800 million.
Despite its success, Silicon Labs is still driven by a passion for innovation. It continues to release cutting-edge new offerings on a regular basis.
Recently, the company expanded its isolated gate array lineup with its Si825xx series drivers. The new product family has a latency rate that is 50 percent lower than products of the previous generation. The line also features a voltage input range of 4.5V to 20V, transient immunity, and over-temperature protection.
Those groundbreaking characteristics make the Si825xx series ideal for industrial, data center, and automotive power supplies.
Silicon Labs’ devotion to pushing the semiconductor industry forward will help it continue to grow for years to come.
