As a result of Cirrus Logic selling Apex Precision Power business unit to a group of private investors led by Alerion Capital, Apex Microtechnology, Inc. has been re-established as a standalone corporation.

During the five-year Cirrus Logic tenure, the Apex Precision Power business unit added precision voltage references to complement its existing power operational and pulse width modulation (PWM) amplifiers.

The Apex Microtechnology brand has a long-standing reputation as an innovator in the design and manufacturing of high-power analog microelectronics that help customers work with the inherent electrical and thermal management issues of end-use circuitry requiring power levels of up to 50 A and 1200 V.

The company has more than 300 product models in its catalog of off-the-shelf component solutions.

These devices are typically used to generate motion control, such as driving piezo electrical devices, and brush and brushless DC motors. Target application markets include high-reliability industrial, test and measurement, medical, aerospace and defense.

Greg Brennan, chief executive officier, stated that Apex will focus its resources on evolving the technical design expertise needed to keep the company poised as an industry innovator.

Apex Microtechnology will continue design engineering and manufacturing operations at its headquarters 50,000 square-foot facility which includes a 20,000 square-foot Class 5 clean room. The company will retain more than 80 employees.
