Fairchild Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS) announced the addition of three analog development teams, with approximately 25 individuals, to bolster its power analog business. These teams bring an aggregate 479 years of analog experience to Fairchild and will focus on developing next generation analog IC solutions for both dc to dc and ac to ac power management applications.

"These highly educated and experienced design engineers have joined over the last six months, and I'm confident they, coupled with the other solid members of our Analog Products Group, will drive our long term success metric of growing our business between $450 to $500 million in analog revenues with 45% to 50% margins," said Bob Conrad, executive vice president and general manager, Analog Products Group. "I'm very pleased such highly skilled teams chose Fairchild Semiconductor as their analog employer of choice."

Fairchild's three new development teams have extensive process experience across bipolar, DMOS, CMOS, and BiCMOS technologies, using analog, digital and mixed signal design techniques. Additionally, they have experience in both system and IC development in areas such as power supplies, power management, high frequency communications, motor drivers, phase lock loop products and high precision analog. The three teams are located in Silicon Valley, North Carolina and New Hampshire - their members holding numerous patents and having been widely published.
