Indeed, I said it was not a name consumers would be overly familiar with. Of course anyone in the electronics world knows about Fairchild. It's an iconic semiconductor company.

Fairchild a $1.6 billion firm with many diverse product lines. Examples include traditional analog and mixed signal, optoelectroncis, lighting, logic, circuit protection and of course automotive. They have many power management products and acquired several large power product firms based in Asia. Anyone who looks at the trade press and blogs would run across Fairchild Semiconductor advertisements.

I would think anyone working in electronics would recognize the Fairchild name...but an average consumer on the street obviously not...that applies to Analog Devices, Broadcom, Qualcomm etc as well
