Intersil’s products include amplifiers, analog front ends, communication interfaces, data converters, digital potentiometers, display solutions, DSL solutions, optical storage products, power management products, real time clocks, switches/MUX’s, etc. In 2017 Intersil became a part of Renesas.
Intersil – Analog and Power Semiconductors
Intersil has developed into a leading analog semiconductor manufacturer with five specialized product groups: Consumer Power, Consumer Electronics, Analog Mixed Signal, Industrial Communications and Automotive & Military/Space Specialties.
Intersil was founded in 1967. After being acquired by General Electric Corp in 1981, it was sold to Harris Corporation in 1988, at which point the name was retired. Intersil at Wikipedia.
Cadence RF Design Methodology Kit enables customers to rapidly address wireless opportunities by addressing system-level, verification and IC parasitic challenges.
Cadence Design Systems and OrCAD
Cadence Functional Verification Kit for ARM offers a comprehensive verification solution specifically for engineers developing ARM processor-based designs.
Cadence PSpice A/D and Advanced Analysis
Spice-based simulator for system design. It simulates complex mixed-signal designs containing both analog and digital parts, and it supports a wide range of simulation models such as IGBTs, pulse width modulators, DACs, and ADCs.
Cadence OrCAD Capture and Capture CIS
Schematic design solution, supporting both flat and hierarchal designs from the simplest to the most complex. Seamless bi-directional integration with OrCAD PCB Editor enables data synchronization and cross-probing/placing between the schematic and the board design.
Cadence Tutorial for VLSI Design
This site contains a complete on-line tutorial for a typical bottom-up design flow using CADENCE Custom IC Design Tools (version 97A). The examples were generated using the HP 0.6 um CMOS14TB process technology files, prepared at North Carolina State University (NCSU) and made available through MOSIS.
Texas Instruments, better known in the electronics industry (and popularly) as TI, is an American company based in Dallas, Texas, USA, renowned for developing and commercializing semiconductor and computer technology.

A Vintage Calculator from TI
Texas Instruments – wiki
TI produced the world’s first commercial silicon transistor in 1950, and designed and manufactured the first transistor radio in 1954. Jack Kilby invented the integrated circuit in 1958 while working at TI’s Central Research Labs.
TI also invented the hand-held calculator in 1967, and introduced the first single-chip microcontroller (MCU) in 1970, which combined all the elements of computing onto one piece of silicon.
A Developer Evaluation Embedded System
Texas Instruments Embedded Portfolio Overview is made up of three sub-divisions: Wireless, Microcontrollers, and Processors
Embedded processors are the processing brains of electronics that gather inputs from analog chips and perform computational processing to operate a system.

Silicones are polymers that include silicon together with carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and sometimes other chemical elements.
Silicone at Wikipedia
Frederick Kipping was the chemist who pioneered the study of the organic compounds of silicon (Organosilicons), and invented the term silicone.
You know that Silicones play an important role to electronics manufacturing. When you want to Insulate a Power Device from the heatsink, Silpad is used in place of Mica. In some situations, where a higher temperature is expected, Mica or Alumina is inevitable, but these are fragile.
Silicone shrink sleeves, Silicone Insulating Sheaths or Surfaces, provide good electrical insulation and Thermal stability to survive in the industrial environment.
