Intersil Announces New Automotive Analog IC Innovation at Convergence 2006 in Detroit

Automotive & Specialty Products VP/GM Susan Hardman to Host Press Conference at Convergence on Tuesday, October 17, 2006

MILPITAS, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 10, 2006 -- Intersil Corporation (NASDAQ: ISIL), a world leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance analog semiconductors, today announced its expanded offerings in the automotive market with the display of analog products and technology in booth #1153 at Convergence 2006, October 16-18 at the Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan. Intersil will display its complete family of high-performance analog solutions targeted for the rapidly-growing automotive market.

Intersil has developed industry-leading expertise in a broad range of analog technologies critical to next-generation automotive infotainment applications, including video distribution, display power management, heads-up and cluster displays, body electronics, LED lighting, light-to-digital sensors and sensors for pressure, acceleration and rain.

Intersil's LVDS technology, which reduces cabling by using serializing and deserializing (SERDES) parallel signals, can be used anywhere there is a need for moving high-speed digital data from multiple ports to a host for processing or display. This innovative solution developed by Intersil delivers the high pixel rates needed to support crystal clear video signal distribution throughout a vehicle.

The company also has established a leadership position in devices ranging from boost regulators to fully-integrated multi-channel regulators with integrated amplifiers to support LCD displays. In addition, Intersil is a pioneer in highly-integrated, low-power light-to-digital sensors that can improve display panel visibility in backlight control applications or be integrated into an automatically adjusting vehicle interior lighting solution that uses Intersil LED drivers.
