austriamicrosystems has announced that "ams" will be its new company brand. According to the company, the move unites austriamicrosystems and the brand and identity of Texas Advanced Optoelectronic Solutions Inc. (TAOS), a global supplier of intelligent light sensors, acquired last year.

ams, headquartered in Unterpremstaetten, Austria, is a global designer and maker of high performance analog ICs that provides innovative analog solutions to the most challenging applications in sensors and sensor interfaces, power management and wireless, said the firm. ams' products are geared at applications that require high accuracy, wide dynamic range, sensitivity and immunity to noise or ultra-low power consumption.

The company builds on more than 30 years of operation in analog semiconductors and is responsible for numerous breakthroughs in applications such as magnetic encoders, medical imaging, power management, low-power RF, optical sensing, audio amplification and battery sensing, ams boasted. The company draws on this experience, and on the unique CMOS, high voltage CMOS and SiGe fabrication processes it has developed, to create new high-performance standard products and ASICs targeting the consumer and communications, industrial, medical, and automotive markets all around the globe, ams added.
