IXYS Integrated Circuits Division

IXYS Integrated Circuits Division, formerly Clare, Inc., an IXYS Company, designs, manufactures, and markets high-voltage integrated circuits (ICs) and optically isolated Solid State Relays (OptoMOS®) for the communication, industrial, power, and consumer markets.

As a pioneer in the development of Solid State Relays (SSRs), we have become a leading supplier to the telecommunications, security, utility metering, and industrial control industries. IXYS Integrated Circuits Division SSR solutions are rapidly replacing older electromechanical devices in many applications, and enhancing overall system performance. We continue to develop leadership products that offer higher levels of integration and electrical performance.

Our products enable communications by providing the critical interface between high-voltage electrical signals and the low-voltage electronics that process these signals. Leading manufacturers of communication, industrial, power, and consumer equipment around the world rely on us for semiconductor solutions.

With the recent introduction of new power solid state relays, high-voltage analog switches, and electroluminescent display driver products, IXYS Integrated Circuits Division has greatly expanded its product portfolio for the communication, power, medical, and display markets.

Distribution Channels
We sell our products worldwide through a network of direct salespeople, sales representatives, and distributors.

Corporate Heritage
IXYS Integrated Circuits Division, formerly Clare, Inc., formerly CP Clare Corporation, was founded in 1937 by Carl P. Clare to provide high-voltage switching technology to a growing telecommunications market. Over the past 60+ years, the company has built upon this high-voltage expertise, evolving from a manufacturer of electromagnetic components to a leader in silicon solutions for the last inch of the last telecommunications mile.

On July 6, 1998, Clare acquired Micronix Integrated Systems, Inc. Micronix specializes in the design and manufacture of analog and mixed-signal ASICs and ASSPs, utilizing CMOS, BiCMOS, and Bipolar semiconductor technologies. Micronix products sell into the data and wireless communications, medical, industrial and automated test equipment marketplaces.

In June 2002, Clare, Inc. was acquired by IXYS Corporation and is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of IXYS. 
IXYS Corporation designs, manufactures, and markets a broad spectrum of power semiconductors, including Power MOSFETs, IGBTs, Ultra-fast Reverse Recovery Diodes, silicon and gallium arsenide Schottky diodes, thyristors and rectifiers, Multi-chip Modules, DCB ceramic substrates and Power Interface Integrated Circuits for the global power market.
