IXYS Corporation, an integrated semiconductor company, designs, develops, manufactures, and markets power semiconductors, digital and analog integrated circuits (ICs), and systems and radio frequency (RF) power semiconductors worldwide. Its power semiconductors include power metal-oxide-silicon field-effect transistors; insulated-gate bipolar transistors; and thyristors and rectifiers, such as fast-recovery epitaxial diodes, which are primarily used to control electricity in power conversion systems comprising uninterruptible power supplies and switch-mode power supplies; motor drives; medical electronics; and renewable energy sources, such as wind turbines and solar systems. The company’s ICs comprise solid state relays; line card access switch and data access arrangements integrated products; high voltage, mixed-signal, and analog application specific integrated circuits; power management and control ICs; and microcontrollers that are primarily used in telecommunications, display, power management, security systems, and appliances. Its RF power semiconductors consist of field-effect transistors, pseudomorphic-high-electron-mobility transistors, and gunn diodes, which enable the amplification and reception of radio frequencies in wireless infrastructure, industrial RF applications, medical systems and defense and space electronics; and systems and other products comprise laser diode drivers, high voltage pulse generators and modulators, high power subsystems, and direct copper bond substrates that are used in power semiconductor industry. IXYS Corporation sells its products through direct sales personnel, independent representatives, and distributors. The company was founded in 1983 and is headquartered in Milpitas, California.
