Apex Microtechnology (Apex) offers industry-leading power analog innovation for applications requiring high precision control of current, voltage and speed in the industrial, defense and aerospace, medical, and semiconductor capital equipment markets. Apex Microtechnology develops and manufactures precision power analog monolithic, hybrid and open frame components for a wide range of industrial, test and measurement, medical, aerospace and defense applications. These devices are typically used to generate motion control, such as driving piezo electrical devices, and brush and brushless DC motors. With more than 300 catalog “off-the-shelf” products, Apex Microtechnology is a recognized leader for consistently developing products that lead the industry in terms of performance, quality, and reliability. Founded in 1980, Apex Microtechnology was acquired in 2007 by Cirrus Logic, a premier supplier of mixed-signal processing components for audio and energy markets. Following a five-year tenure as a division of the Austin, Texas, based developer of complex chip designs, Apex Microtechnology has returned to a stand-alone, privately-held corporation with its sale to a private investor group. The company is headquartered in Tucson, Ariz., USA.
Apex Microtechnology, Inc., which Cirrus Logic acquired in July 2007, has been re-established as a stand-alone corporation. Apex Microtechnology brand has a long-standing reputation as an innovator in the design and manufacturing of high-power analog microelectronics that help customers work with the inherent electrical and thermal management issues of end-use circuitry requiring power levels of up to 50 A and 1200 V. These devices are typically used to generate motion control, such as driving piezo electrical devices, and brush and brushless DC motors. Target application markets include high-reliability industrial, test and measurement, medical, aerospace and defense. During its five-year, Cirrus Logic tenure, the Apex Precision Power business unit added precision voltage references to complement its existing power operational and pulse width modulation (PWM) amplifiers. Today, the company has more than 300 product models in its catalog of off-the-shelf component solutions.
