offers one of the world`s broadest product
ranges, with over 3,000 main types of products.
The carefully balanced portfolio includes both
application-specific products containing a large
proprietary IP content and multi-segment
products that range from discrete devices to
high- performance microcontrollers.

five major high-growth sectors:
