Avago Technologies

Avago Technologies brings together the capabilities and track record of an established global leader with the energy and responsiveness of a startup. They spent their first three decades as part of HP, where they acquired a reputation for innovation, quality and superior customer service and amassed a large intellectual property portfolio. During the next few years they continued to diversify and grow as the semiconductor division of HP’s spinoff, Agilent Technologies. Then in late 2005 they were acquired by KKR and Silver Lake Partners, and became an independent company.

Avago provides an extensive range of analog, mixed-signal and optoelectronic components and subsystems to more than 40,000 end customers, including many of the world’s top original equipment manufacturers. Avago Technologies has the industry’s best on-time delivery record, and an unsurpassed global distribution network. Their worldwide design and application resources allow them to work face-to-face with customers, and they have the R&D, manufacturing and global supply chain to deliver cutting-edge technology in high volume to accelerate market adoption.
