Our semiconductor solutions can be found in many of today’s cutting-edge consumer electronics, such as mobile devices, smartphones, wearables, tablets, and wireless charging platforms. High-performance silicon and small footprint are two key features that make Semtech wireless charging, electrostatic discharge (ESD) circuit protection, and capacitive touch controller integrated circuits (ICs) the go-to solutions in today’s trending consumer electronics industry.
The implication was that people purchase consumer electronics for casual use and entertainment rather than professional use. However, each year, consumer devices become as sophisticated as yesteryear’s professional gear. In addition, smartphones, tablets, and smartwatches fit into both consumer and business categories.
Wearable technology or wearables are the most regularly used consumer technology, it is a technology craze that has been adopted by the fitness and fashion industries. Clothing, watch, and jewelry manufacturers are equipping their products with electronic devices enabled by Semtech power management, wireless charging, touch sensing, and touch controller devices for high performance in ultra-small form factors.
Today’s home appliances and white goods – air conditioners, refrigerators, washing machines, and dishwashers – are equipped with electronics enabled by Semtech’s wireless charging, LoRa Technology, power management, and sensing products to optimize performance, connect to the Internet of Things, and home automation systems, and feature state-of-the-art design and functionality.
