Featured March 2001:

This month we are featuring Xemics, a fabless semiconductor company which develops and delivers ultra low-power, short-range wireless connectivity solutions. Their ICs include wireless, bluetooth, and GPS chips; microcontrollers; sensor conditioning ICs; audio ICs, intellectual property products, development tools, and custom-specific ICs for high volume applications. We've tried some of their chips, and not only are they neat products, Xemics provides great product support!

Editor's Note: Xemics was bought out by Semtech. The link below will now take you to the most current version of the XE chips.
