SiGe enables wireless multimedia capabilities for consumer electronic giants with innovative RF solutions
Consumer electronics manufacturers take advantage of SiGe Semiconductor's integrated circuits and front end modules to build better mobile, entertainment and computing devices
With end customers that include Apple, Dell, Linksys, HP and Nintendo, SiGe Semiconductor’s mission is to be the key enabler of wireless multimedia capabilities by providing innovative RF solutions for consumer electronics. The company draws on a large intellectual property base of patents and more than 100 employees to exploit advances in process technology, passive die, and multi-chip modules to give its customers smaller form factors, longer battery life, higher speed, enhanced quality of service, and improved coverage. These benefits have opened an enormous market opportunity in personal navigation devices, media players, gaming systems, Bluetooth(R)-enabled devices, and cellular handsets.
SiGe is a privately-held fabless semiconductor company with offices in Ottawa, Boston, Hong Kong, London, and San Diego. The company was founded in 1996 as SiGe Microsystems, a spinoff from the National Research Council of Canada. In 2001 the name was changed to SiGe Semiconductor to more accurately reflect the company's core competencies — RF IC design and manufacturing primarily using silicon germanium BiCMOS and HBT technologies.
