Name That Com­pany

The Saratogian (Saratoga, NY) - - BUSINESS -

Few peo­ple know my name, but my chips are very likely in your smart­phone, ca­ble box and other de­vices. I’m the prod­uct of merg­ers and spinoffs, and for more than 50 years I have been tied to Hewlett-Packard, Agi­lent, AT&T, Bell Labs and Lu­cent, and I’m the prod­uct of a 2016 ac­qui­si­tion by Avago Tech­nolo­gies. I or my pre­de­ces­sors in­tro­duced the first LED dot-ma­trix dis­plays in the 1960s and launched the first Wi-Fi/Blue­tooth/FM combo chip for mo­bile phones in 2007. I have shipped more than a bil­lion op­ti­cal mouse chips. My mar­ket value re­cently topped $100 bil­lion. Who am I? Think you know the an­swer? We’ll an­nounce it in next week’s edi­tion.
