Analog Devices, Inc. is a major player in the semiconductor industry as they are involved in the process of conceptualizing, manufacturing, and distribution of analog, digital signal processing (DSP) and mixed-signal technology such as software system and subsystems, integrated circuits (ICs), as well as algorithms.

Analog Devices Inc operates in key areas globally, including the USA, Europe, China, Japan, and the entire Asian region.

It’s signal processing products function in conversion and conditioning and real-world process phenomena like sound, speed, temperature, light, pressure, and motion into signals.

Analog Devices’ range of products includes data converters, power management products, linear products, processing products, amplifiers, an integrated circuit for radio frequency (RF), micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) sensor tech as well as related sensors and processing products.

A wide range of devices and systems uses the use of Analog device products such as electronic equipment of varying types, which include portable electronic devices, optical systems, medical imaging systems, and industrial process control systems.

Analog Devices Inc. was involved in the $14.8 billion acquisition of Linear Technology Corp. This deal essentially is a step in the right direction as it implies a union between two respected companies in a lucrative niche of the semiconductor industry.

The niche of the semiconductor industry where Analog and Linear Tech are specialists in the production of chips is employed to handle real-world signals like pressure, sound, and light heat. They are transformed into electrical signals for use in several electronic types of equipment.

Interestingly, analog chips are used in smartphone production as it serves to manage the phones radio signals. This is an important component of smartphone production, making Analog devices a major player in the smartphone industry.

Analog Devices features more than 100,000 customers and users in the following industries: industrial, communications, computer, and electronics, automotive, instrumentation, and military/aerospace industries.
