In 2005, PTC formed a new RFIC division via outside acquisition in order to quickly address the increasing popularity of RF products in communication and home entertainment devices, and as a result, PTC’s product lines have become more complete. In December of 2006, PTC obtained ISO/TS16949 certification, a standard of quality that is widely recognized by automobile manufacturers. Consequently, the PTC-brand has gained prominence in the lucrative car-use IC market and the quality of PTC’s products has become more renowned.
Recently, in response to the market trend of Green Power (Energy Conservation), PTC has invested in developing IC technology for energy-saving lighting solutions. To date, PTC has successfully designed a series of energy-saving Ballast Driver ICs and LED Lighting/Backlight Driver ICs, which may be applied to all kinds of outdoor and interior lighting products.
