San Jose, California – January 2, 2008 – Fairchild Semiconductor’s (NYSE: FCS) single-bit, bi-directional translator, FET plus driver module and the industry’s first SD multiplexer were selected as top products in the power and logic categories in the quarterly EETimes and eeProductCenter Ultimate Products Survey.

In the Power category, Fairchild’s FDMF6700, a fully optimized and integrated FET plus driver power stage solution in ultra-compact 6mm x 6mm MLP packaging, ranked four out of ten in technical significance. This product targets space-constrained applications such as small-form-factor desktops, media center PCs, ultra-dense servers, blade servers, advanced gaming systems, graphic cards, networking and telecom equipment and other DC-DC applications.

In the Logic and Programmable Logic category, two of Fairchild’s products were chosen as best of the best, the FXLH1T45 and the FSSD06. The FXLH1T45, a single-bit, bi-directional voltage translator with guaranteed operation from 1.1V to 3.6V, was ranked three out of ten products. This translator offers both uni-directional and bi-directional translation between a variety of voltage levels and provides a needed interface between processors to electronic subsystems. Since this device operates down to 1.1V, it is ideal for the low-power requirements of portable applications. The FSSD06, the industry’s first multiplexer supporting high voltage and dual voltage secure digital (SD)/secure digital I/O (SDIO) and multimedia cards, was ranked nine out of ten in technical significance. Beyond expanding SD/SDIO/MMC capability in multi-functional portable designs, this secure data, two-port multiplexer enables a 1.8V host processor to interface with high-voltage and dual-voltage cards, providing seamless, bi-directional communication while consuming only 1µA of battery power.

The Ultimate Products award is a product peer-review program developed by EE Times and eeProductCenter. Each quarter the editors of eeProductCenter select the ten most significant new products in seven categories, and qualified readers are asked to score the products in terms of technical significance and usability.
