Commented Balu Balakrishnan, President and CEO of Power Integrations, “We returned to year-over-year revenue growth in the third quarter driven by strength in our communications category, reflecting accelerated adoption of fast chargers for smartphones. Our InnoSwitch ICs, including our new higher-power devices with GaN switches, are winning in the market thanks to their industry-leading combination of efficiency and integration. Looking ahead, while trade issues and weaker macroeconomic conditions continue to weigh on demand, we expect strong year-over-year growth in the fourth quarter.”
Balakrishnan continued, “The settlement of our litigation with ON Semiconductor is a landmark win for our company, demonstrating the durability and the value of our intellectual property, as well as our determination to protect it from unlawful use by competitors.”
