Maxim Integrated ships billionth automotive IC

Today’s vehicles are increasingly energy efficient. However, they also have more complex electronic demands placed on them as customers seek increased efficiency, safety and convenience. Maxim Integrated Products has shipped its one billionth IC to the automotive market, ICs that enhance infotainment, safety, keyless access and powertrain applications. Customers rely on these highly integrated products for automotive subsystems that are smaller and more reliable.

Maxim’s automotive electronic products continue to be in high demand and represent the fastest-growing segment of the company’s revenues. Currently representing 16% of the company’s sales, automotive was about 5% of revenues in 2012. Maxim continues to grow revenues above the company average.

Maxim will showcase some of its automotive solutions at CES 2016:

  • The MAX9286 gigabit multimedia serial link deserialiser enables the design of surround-view systems for ADAS with fewer components and faster time to market. It receives and automatically synchronises video from up to four cameras.
  • The MAX16984 automotive DC/DC converter with USB charge emulator quickly and reliably charges any portable device over USB in a car with a single IC.
  • The MAX2173 DAB RF to Bits tuner for DAB applications enables SDR through its RF to Bits architecture. It saves space, lowers the BOM and significantly increases system flexibility.

Randall Wollschlager, Vice President of Automotive, Maxim Integrated, commented: “The shipment of our one billionth automotive IC is an important milestone for Maxim. Automotive electronics system designers are increasingly looking to us for leading edge solutions for vehicle access, safety, infotainment and power control.”

Maxim’s automotive solutions meet the Automotive Safety Integrity Levels defined by ISO 26262 and are designed for a harsh operating environment while providing higher integration, high/low voltage protection and a broad operating temperature range.
