About IMP Inc.
IMP Inc (IMP or the Company) was founded as a California corporation in 1981 and reincorporated in Delaware as International Microelectronic Products, Inc (IMP Inc) in 1987. The Company designs, manufactures and sells integrated circuit (IC) semiconductor devices, also known as microchips. The Companys focus is on a specialized technology sector called the analog IC and mixed signal market. IMP sells its analog IC technology in two basic forms: IMP manufactures IC wafers for other semiconductor vendors using IMPs own and customer-developed processes which the Company refers to as foundry services and IMP designs, manufactures and sells standard analog power-management ICs which the Company refers to as standard products.
IMPs wafer production, design and research and development activities are located in San Jose, California. IMP operates its own wafer fabrication plant in order to develop and control the specialized analog technologies that are essential for the design of products offering technical advantages to the customer.
Products and Services
The Companys revenues derive primarily from two types of activities:
Wafer Foundry and Custom IC Manufacturing Services Processed wafers are round silicon slices that contain hundreds or thousands of completed microchips ready to be separated and assembled into individual packages. This activity is referred to as the wafer foundry business. A number of older IMP-designed and owned products for tape-based, mass-storage systems are today essentially custom circuits because each is sold to a single customer.
Power Management ICsThe Company focuses its research and development activity on low-power and high-voltage features for handheld and portable battery-operated communication systems, such as pagers, cell phones, and electronic organizers. In addition to communications systems, power management products are used in just about every piece of electronic equipment being designed today.
The Companys competitors in the analog silicon foundry services market include American Microsystems Inc., a division of Japan Energy Corporation; Austrian Micro Systems; California Micro Devices; Supertex and Tower Semiconductor, as well as internal manufacturing facilities within its customers. To a lesser degree the company competes with large Asian foundries, such as Chartered Semiconductor of Singapore, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, and UMC Group of Taiwan.
With respect to application-specific data communications devices such as SCSI termination devices, the companys principal competitors are Maxim Integrated Products, Microsemi Microelectronics and Unitrode, a division of Texas Instruments. The Companys competitors for power management products include Micrel, Supertex, Sipex, Microchip, Linear Technology and Maxim Integrated Products. Other competitors include Analog Devices Inc., Linfinity Microelectronics, Motorola, National Semiconductor Corporation, Texas Instruments, and certain European and Asian manufacturers.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
