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.

iSim Online Designer
 
Advanced design tool for creating complex solutions, this is available both as a software download or an online app.

Capture schematic, view waveforms, perform application analysis and more. It is an interactive web-based design tool for selecting and simulating devices from Intersil's broad portfolio. (power management devices and operational amplifiers.)

Remote Strain Gauge Reference Design
 


"Intersil's applications engineer, Daniel Goodhew, presents the remote strain gauge reference design using Nextreme's thermal energy harvester and Intersil's low power, low noise chopper amplifier."

History

The original 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.

My own analog design carrer (while in college) started with national semiconductor databooks and Intersil CMOS Hot ideas.
