Allegro is currently organized into two technology-defined business units. These business units are paving parallel paths of expansion, up-integration, and diversification by entering or broadening into markets with higher growth.
The Sensor group produces Hall-effect sensor ICs offering contactless sensing for applications such as direction-detection, gear-tooth, speed, linear, angle, current and position sensing for automotive, industrial, consumer, and portable electronics.
The IC group produces power ICs for motor drivers, motor control and switching regulation. Allegro's ICs are used in office automation (particularly printers), industrial, automotive and portable electronics markets.
Allegro understands that investment in manufacturing is critical to long-term success. The ongoing investment in IC fabrication, packaging, and testing facilities, both in the US and abroad, ensures that Allegro is poised to meet the needs of all customers. The company is committed to manufacturing integrated circuits with the highest standards of quality, reliability and service.
Allegro has forty years experience in the semiconductor industry. With over 3,000 employees worldwide, Allegro is headquartered in Worcester, MA, where corporate management, design, marketing and customer service are located in a 250,000 sq. ft. facility. The company also has a 100K sq. ft. business development facility in New Hampshire that houses business management, marketing, design, and product test.
Wafers are manufactured at an affiliated company (Polar Semiconductor) located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Production test and select product assembly is housed in a wholly owned subsidiary located in the Philippines.
