Worcester, MA, USA
Supplier of advanced mixed-signal analog power IC semiconductors and current sensors. Allegro MicroSystems, Inc. provides innovative system-level solutions in the design and manufacture of advanced mixed-signal Hall-effect sensor and analog power ICs serving high-growth applications worldwide within the Automotive Electronics, Office Automation, Industrial and Portable Electronics markets. Allegro provide vertically integrated mixed-signal ICs, adding more components and greater functionality. Allegro's line has extensive product breadth and depth, with standard "plug and play" products: the only Hall-effect manufacturer with BiCMOS design capabilities; BCD (Bi-polar, CMOS, DMOS) products offer greater efficiency, and control.
Allegro is currently organized into two technology-defined groups. These groups are paving parallel paths of expansion, up-integration, and diversification by entering or broadening into markets with higher growth. The Sensor group produces Hall-effect sensors offering contactless switching for applications such as direction-detection, geartooth, linear, position, and speed sensing for automotive, industrial, consumer, and portable electronics. The IC group produces power ICs for motor drives, motor control and power interface. Allegro's ICs are used in office automation (particularly printers), industrial, automotive and portable electronics markets. Allegro is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sanken Electric Company, Ltd., a billion dollar company who manufactures semiconductors, discretes, LEDs, and switch mode power supplies, with headquarters in Saitama, Japan. The two companies jointly develop and market leading-edge products in the areas of power management and motion control.
