Anadigm� Moves U.S. Base to Phoenix Area

Jun 30, 2004

Anadigm�, a fabless semiconductor company that specializes in programmable analog chips for audio, industrial, RFID, and environmental control systems, today announced that it is moving its U.S. base from California�s Silicon Valley to Tempe, Ariz., a suburb of Phoenix.

A venture-backed technology spinoff from Motorola, Anadigm was founded in January 2000 and completed a third round of financing worth $15 million in October 2003. The company�s field programmable analog array (FPAA) integrated circuits are the industry�s first such chips that can adapt in real time to put real-world interfaces under software control. As such, FPAAs represent a major advance over the static ICs and discrete components typically used for analog circuitry.

�Compared with Silicon Valley, Arizona provides us with a much more cost-effective location while providing access to a highly qualified pool of hardware and software engineering talent,� said Bill McLean, Anadigm� president and CEO. �With neighbors such as Freescale Semiconductor, Intel, and MicroChip, we feel very much at home in our new U.S. headquarters location.�

Anadigm employs software and hardware design engineers at its location in Tempe in addition to members of its executive staff. Employment opportunities at Anadigm are listed on the company�s Web site at

About Anadigm�

Anadigm� brings platform-based design to the analog world with pre-qualified software and hardware components that allow complex analog circuits to be implemented in an analog equivalent to the FPGA. Designed to implement signal conditioning, filtering, data acquisition, closed-loop control, and other analog functions in a wide range of embedded systems, Anadigm� FPAAs are first programmable analog ICs that can adapt on the fly to perform multiple functions, adjust to different environmental conditions, or compensate for equipment aging. Founded in January 2000 as a venture-backed technology spinoff from Motorola, Anadigm� maintains U.S. headquarters in Tempe, AZ and European headquarters in Crewe, UK.
