Communication ICs simplify design of electronic communication equipment by providing complete building blocks or application specific functions in a single chip. This results in higher reliability designs that require lower power, less space, smaller BOM and faster time to market. Our high-performance communications devices support multiple technologies including wired, powerline, optical, and wireless communications. These highly integrated solutions address critical functions within the telecom, cable, data center, mobile and automotive markets.
