(This was a business unit of ITT Industries Incorporated but was bought by M/A-COM, Inc. 20000307)
"The acquisition of GaAsTEK is an important step forward for M/A-COM because it enhances our capabilities in several areas,? said M/A-COM President Rick Hess. ?In addition to providing the capacity of a third gallium arsenide (GaAs) fabrication facility, M/A-COM is strengthening its product capabilities and market position in both the wireless and aerospace and defense markets.?
GaAsTEK has been at the forefront of Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) Integrated Circuit (IC) technology since the early 1980?s. GaAsTEK?s patented and unique GaAs MMIC process, called Multifunction Self-Aligned Gate (MSAG?) provides excellent power amplifier performance and allows the integration of multiple circuit functions (e.g., power, low-noise, switch, and digital) onto a single MMIC.

General Instruments
(Their Power Semiconductor Division was split off as General Semiconductor. See the next entry in this listing. Broadband products seem to be part of Motorola now and other IC's went to Microchip.)

General Semiconductor
(The split-off Power Semiconductor Division of General Instruments. See
Design, manufacture and sale of low-to-medium power rectifiers and transient voltage suppressors in axial, bridge, surface mount and array packages. These products are used throughout the electrical and electronics industries to condition current and voltage and to protect electrical circuits from power surges.
199707: GS is the semiconductor business of the former General Instruments Corporation. Following the re-structuring of General Instruments, GS will shortly be an independent company which exclusively manufactures discrete semiconductor components and already has production facilities in the USA, Taiwan, China and Ireland. The company's headquarters are located in Melville, near New York. Worldwide sales in 1996 were approximately DM 600 million.
Ron Ostertag, the designated Chairman of GS: This integration is strategically important to us. We have bought technology and know-how which strategically round off our business and give us worldwide marketing and distribution capabilities. In addition, we shall be represented in 45 % of the 13 billion dollar market compared with only 15 % at present.
