Fairchild Semiconductor Features Technologies To Help Designers Reduce Energy Consumption At electronica 2008

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fairchild Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS), a leading global supplier of high performance products that enable energy efficiency, will display its product solutions for today's consumer, industrial, automotive and ultra-portable applications at electronica 2008, Hall A4, Booth 121, held in Munich, Germany, November 11-14.

Fairchild will demonstrate products that enable energy-efficient power supplies (AC/DC and DC/DC), motors, LED lighting, automotive, portable systems, solar, induction cooking and TV applications.

The efficient use of energy is the quickest, cheapest, cleanest way to extend the world's energy supplies and with Fairchild Semiconductor technology, innovative power solutions achieve energy savings and increased efficiency while meeting performance, cost and size requirements.

Fairchild's high-performance discrete products and highly-integrated devices help design engineers develop energy-efficient electronic applications. For instance, inverter-controlled motors using Fairchild's Motion-SPM™ devices use 40 percent less energy over non-inverter motors. An energy-efficient set-top box on standby power, using Fairchild's Green FPS™ e-Series™ devices, uses one tenth the power of a traditional device; and LED lighting, using Fairchild technology, uses one tenth the power of an incandescent light bulb. Fairchild IGBTs and MOSFETs along with advanced packaging provide efficiency benefits for automotive applications such as engine management, interior displays, braking and safety features.

Please join us at electronica 2008 to see Fairchild's portfolio of products that enable efficiency in electronic applications.
