About Linear Technology Corp.
Linear Technology Corporation engages in the design, manufacture, and marketing of linear integrated circuits.
The companys products include amplifiers, comparators, voltage references, monolithic filters, linear regulators, DC-DC converters, battery chargers, data converters, communications interface circuits, RF signal conditioning circuits, uModule products, and other analog functions.
Amplifiers: These circuits amplify the output voltage or current of a device. The amplification represents the ratio of the output voltage or current to the input voltage or current.
High Speed Amplifiers: These amplifiers are used to amplify signals from 5 megahertz to various megahertz for applications, such as video, data acquisition, and communications.
Voltage Regulators: Voltage regulators deliver a controlled voltage to power electronic systems. This category of product consists primarily of two types, the linear regulator and the switch-mode regulator. Switch-mode regulators are also used to convert voltage up or down within an electronic system for power management and battery charging.
Voltage References: These circuits serve as electronic benchmarks providing a constant voltage for measurement systems usage. Precision references have a constant output independent of input, temperature changes or time.
Interface: Interface circuits act as an intermediary to transfer digital signals between or within electronic systems. These circuits are used in computers, modems, instruments, and remote data acquisition systems.
Data Converters: These circuits change linear (analog) signals into digital signals, or visa versa, and are often referred to as data acquisition subsystems, A/D converters, and D/A converters. The accuracy and speed with which the analog signal is converted to its digital counterpart (and visa versa) is considered a key characteristic for these devices. Low speed data converters may have resolution up to 24 bits, while high speed converters may operate in the region of 100s of megahertz sample rates.
Radio Frequency Circuits: These circuits include mixers, modulators, demodulators, amplifiers, drivers, filters, oscillators/synthesizers, and power detectors and controllers. They are used in wireless and cable infrastructure, cell phones, and wireless data communications infrastructure.
Power Over Ethernet Controllers (POE): POE controller circuits enable transmission of voltage and current over standard Ethernet cables to power equipment or devices connected to the network.
DC/DC µModule Power Systems: A DC/DC µModule simplifies the design of a DC/DC regulator circuit by integrating a circuit into a protective and encapsulated package. The customer design requires limited knowledge of analog and DC/DC regulator circuits and allows a time-to-market power supply solution for digital systems using FPGAs, ASICs, DSPs, or microcontrollers.
Signal Chain Modules: Signal chain functions utilizing data converters, filter, amplifiers, RF circuits, and related passive components are encapsulated as SiP (System in a Package) modules.
Other: Other linear circuits include buffers, battery monitors, motor controllers, hot swap circuits, comparators, sample-and-hold devices, drivers, and filters (both switched capacitor and continuous time), which are used to limit and/or manipulate signals in such applications as cellular telephones, base stations, navigation systems, and industrial applications.
The companys linear circuits are used in various applications, including telecommunications; cellular telephones; networking products, such as power over Ethernet switches; tablet, notebook, and desktop computers; computer peripherals, video/multimedia, industrial instrumentation, security monitoring devices, high-end consumer products, such as digital cameras, smart phones, and media players, global positioning systems, complex medical devices, automotive electronics, factory automation, process control, military, space, and other harsh environment systems.
The company sells approximately 15,000 original equipment manufacturer customers directly and/or through the sales distributor channel. Its primary domestic distributor is Arrow Electronics.
The company's sales organization is divided into domestic and international regions. Its sales offices located in the United States are in the following metropolitan areas: Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Minneapolis, Boston, Philadelphia, Sacramento, San Jose, Denver, Portland, Seattle, Austin, Dallas, Houston, Raleigh, Irvine, Los Angeles, Phoenix, and San Diego.

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?
