Enabling a Connected World

As our world links more tightly together, you’ll need underlying technologies to bring intelligence and connectivity to your products and systems. With its acquisition of Icron Technologies Corporation, a global developer and manufacturer of high-performance USB and video extension solutions for commercial and industrial markets, Maxim extends its focus on solutions for Industry 4.0, building automation, and healthcare/wellness.

Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, Icron is a worldwide leader in extending USB 1.1, USB 2.0, USB 3.0/3.1, and HD video extension solutions. The company’s patented ExtremeUSB® technology extends the range of USB over multiple types of media, such as CAT 5e/6/7, fiber, LAN, wireless, coax, and powerline. Users benefit from plug-and-play simplicity; reliability; commercial-grade, robust connections; and compatibility with all devices and operating systems. The products are available in a variety of formats: finished goods with the Icron branding, unbranded finished goods for private-label and turnkey PCBA boards, core modules, and chipsets for OEM integration. These solutions are used in industrial and building automation, education, medical diagnostics and imaging, security, surveillance, and professional audio/visual applications.

Maxim has been focused on creating industrial solutions for smarter, more automated factories and buildings, paving the path to industrial convergence. In the healthcare and wellness space, we’re continuing to advance our sensor solutions, low-power microprocessors, and embedded security technologies. The trusted Icron and ExtremeUSB brand expands Maxim’s portfolio to include additional data compression and audio/video transmission solutions. Maxim will continue to support our solutions as usual, while Icron, now a subsidiary of Maxim, will maintain support of its products. Our combined expertise will enable us to assist you in overcoming challenges as you design the products that connect our world.
