TAG Semiconductor was acquired by Temic Semiconductors. In March, 1998, the Temic Semiconductors division of Temic Telefunken Microelectronic GmbH was sold by parent company Daimler-Benz A.G. to Vishay Intertechnology, Inc., which kept the discrete active components business unit and immediately re-sold the integrated circuits business unit to Atmel Corporation. Temic Semiconductors, now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Atmel Corporation, designs and manufactures integrated circuits to serve the communications, automotive, data processing and aerospace markets using CMOS, BiCMOS, Bipolar and SiGe technologies. In August, 2000, the Temic Semiconductors subsidiary of Atmel Corporation was renamed Atmel Wireless & Microcontrollers. Subsequently, Atmel Wireless & Microcontrollers was absorbed into the core product lines of Atmel Corporation and no longer exists as a separate entity. Atmel Corporation, founded in 1984, is a worldwide leader in the design, manufacturing and marketing of advanced semiconductors, including advanced logic, nonvolatile memory, mixed signal and RF integrated circuits. Atmel is one of the few companies capable of integrating dense nonvolatile memory, logic and analog functions on a single chip using advanced BiCMOS, CMOS and Silicon Germanium (SiGe) technologies.
The types of products manufactured by TAG Semiconductor (-> Temic -> Atmel) include Silicon Controlled Rectifiers, Discrete Semiconductors.
