Fairchild Unveils Why It’s the Best Power Management Company to Work with at APEC 2014

At APEC 2014, Fairchild’s highly regarded power experts will present innovative new products and design solutions that make it the best company to work with in the power management field.

Fairchild has a rich history as a pioneer in the semiconductor industry, and that pioneering spirit endures today. In an era where diversity can dilute focus and hamper innovation, the company specializes in the development and manufacturing of a complete portfolio of low- to high-power solutions for the mobile, industrial, cloud, automotive, lighting, and computing industries.

“Since the last APEC, we’ve made a significant shift toward a customer-centric philosophy that includes customer input in the development of innovative products and amazing services that shorten time-to-market and make our customers successful,” said Vijay Ullal, President and COO of Fairchild. “And, we are getting confirmation from many of our customers and distributor partners that this new philosophy is working—they recognize and praise us for raising the bar on customer satisfaction.”

Karim Khebere, Technical Director EMEA for EBV Elektronik, an Avnet Company, recently commented, “It is really remarkable to see how open you are with your customers, as well as conscious of how important that relationship is to accelerate your market penetration / growth.”

As part of this transformation, Fairchild will unveil a new company logo and deliver an updated company strategy at a special event, on March 18th at 4:30pm, in Hall D in the Fort Worth Convention Center. We invite all customers, partners and the editorial community to join us to learn about recent changes in our product offerings and what’s new in power technology.

Fairchild technologists will be available in booth #905 to discuss and showcase the latest power management solutions intended to meet critical design challenges in lighting, DC-DC conversion, industrial power and motion control.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.
