David Milne QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
All the action, in semiconductors at the present time is in the new consumer applications, and that's where we have focused our activities since we started doing our own products in the late '90s.
Quotation of David Milne
Another dynamic of this last year was our increased penetration into the Japanese market.
Quotation of David Milne
But, when we started our product portfolio, we focused the mixed signal requirements first for image processing devices and then in audio applications , targeting our technology into the growing use of digital technology in consumer markets.
Quotation of David Milne
Clearly, Japan is a most important market for digital consumer products.
Quotation of David Milne
I don't really like to talk specifically about customers by name - but we work with nearly all the leading manufacturers of consumer products worldwide and at quite a detailed engineering level.
Quotation of David Milne
I think we have demonstrated that we can get into the most competitive of opportunities in the digital consumer market.
Quotation of David Milne
In terms of development of the company, the vast majority of our sales are in the Far East and we will expect to strengthen our activities there, perhaps even moving some of our engineering activities abroad.
Quotation of David Milne
Jim Reid and I started the company as a design company, as I said earlier, back in '85 and and we transformed it into a product company in 1995.
Quotation of David Milne
One of the attractive things about being in Scotland is that we have a very good pipeline of new people coming into the company from the excellent universities around us.
Quotation of David Milne
One of the key parameters of any successful analog semiconductor company is t he differentiation of their products.
Quotation of David Milne
Our history before that was doing custom design for a wide range of mainly European and then Far Eastern customers.
Quotation of David Milne
The fastest-growing was the portable space, which was driven by end applications like digital cameras, MP3 players, and to a lesser extent mobile phones ,-- that is something for the future for us when quality audio becomes a major feature, and products like headsets, PDAs, etc.
Quotation of David Milne
The growth of a company like ours tends to be a relatively steady because, like some of the other successful mixed signal companies, we have a wide range of products servicing a wide range of end applications.
Quotation of David Milne
The main driving force last year was the increase in our penetration into portable applications, or products that are portable and use our chips.
Quotation of David Milne
There is a wide range of opportunities for us and we see a main part of our strategy as being a company that supplies products across a range of different end applications and indeed we have quite a wide product portfolio which we enhance each year.
Quotation of David Milne
We are also fortunate in being in quite a sheltered environment, in terms of people moving on to do other things, because there are relatively few companies in Scotland that are looking for the skill set that we've developed.
Quotation of David Milne
We are quite open, however, to looking at acquisitions and there are opportunities that we periodically consider. and I think that may be something we do in the future, but I must say that there is no commitment to that at the present time in any form or size.
Quotation of David Milne
We believe we've got the skill base and the techniques to supply the chips that really enable the end manufacturers to develop exciting, innovative products themselves.
Quotation of David Milne
We have been a fabless semiconductor company for a number of years now.
Quotation of David Milne
We have substantially improved our position in Japan which now represents a major part of our business.
Quotation of David Milne
We opened a design center in the South of England last year as part of our strategy for being close to our customers and developing innovative products for exciting new markets.
Quotation of David Milne
We received the PLC of the Year award for the mid-cap company in Scotland - wWe won an U.K. wideEnglish one in London last year - and also won the innovation award.
Quotation of David Milne
We see portability in electronics being a continuing requirement, higher functionality, better battery life, requiring lower power for the actual electronics.
Quotation of David Milne
Well, I think first of all, probably the most fundamental thing is that we are a mixed-signal analog semiconductor company, which, along with some of the other well-known names in the industry, enjoys very good economics.
Quotation of David Milne
Well, we are expanding in all of our segments of the market.
Quotation of David Milne
What we are doing is providing very low-power, high-performance products, particularly for the portable market.
Quotation of David Milne
Wolfson specializes in this particular area. We focus only on the analogue and mixed signal area; we don't do the stand alone digital technology.
