Warm like an LP.

I thought Texas Instruments owned A-D.

Digital? Every idiot can count to one

No they haven't

Moore's law helped general purpose CPUs surpass the power/performance curve of Analog Devices DSPs 20 years ago and has been leaving them in the dust ever since.

Subby, you do realize that not all semiconductor devices are digital?

That really depends on your application and price-point.

Texas Instruments bought Burr-Brown, not Analog Devices.

Nope. The field of top-performance analog ICs, AFAIK, consists of
- TI
- AD (having purchased Linear Tech and Hittite microwave)

Then you have others that compete in mostly lower performance devices, because they know they don't have the resources to match TI or AD. The two main players are Microchip and Renesas, then more smaller players. Vishay also does linear ICs but it's not their main focus.

Nobody just does analog any more of course... TI and AD and Microchip are all top competitors in mixed-signal processing and embedded digital. And there's plenty more companies that do digital only or specialist digital.

Thanks guys -
And National Semiconductor is in there somewhere.  I've lost track of who owns who.

The old Analog Devices office along Rt. 9 in Westborough had the OG stolen off their sign by the road. Not only was it hilarious, it stayed that way for longer than one might have thought prudent.
