Established in 1983, Maxim Integrated Products is a worldwide leader in design, development, and manufacture of linear and mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs).
Maxim circuits “connect” the real world and digital world by detecting, measuring, amplifying, and converting real-world signals, such as temperature, pressure, or sound, into the digital signals necessary for computer processing.
Maxim Integrated delivers innovative analog and mixed-signal engineering solutions used in a wide variety of microprocessor-based electronics equipment. Maxim product offerings include data converters, semiconductors, interface circuits, RF wireless circuits, clocks and oscillators, microcontrollers(MCUs), operational amplifiers (op amps), sensors, and more.
Maxim products are used in a wide variety of microprocessor-based electronics equipment. A sampling of the applications for Maxim circuits includes consumer electronics, personal computers and peripherals, handheld electronics, wireless and fiber communications, test equipment, instrumentation, video displays, and automotive applications.
Dallas Semiconductor, acquired by Maxim Integrated Products in 2001, designed and manufactured analog, digital, and mixed-signal semiconductors (integrated circuits, or ICs). Its specialties included communications products (including T/E and Ethernet products), microcontrollers, battery management, thermal sensing and thermal management, non-volatile RAM, microprocessor supervisors, delay lines, silicon oscillators, digital potentiometers, real-time clocks, temperature-compensated crystal oscillators (TCXOs), iButton, and 1-Wire products.
