To continue supporting people’s rich and joyful lives by opening a path to the future with our innovative thinking, technology, and actions.
In January 2016, ABLIC became independent of Seiko Instruments Inc., and it has been operating as a maker of analog semiconductors under its current name since January 2018. Now ABLIC has made a fresh start upon becoming a member of the MinebeaMitsumi Group in April 2020.
We began in-house development and fabrication of CMOS ICs in 1970, based on the production of the world’s first practical quartz watches in which CMOS ICs were incorporated. Since then, while continuing to provide small, low-power consumption, and accurate analog semiconductor products, not only for watches, but also for a wide range of consumer, mobile, automotive devices and medical equipment, we have been making great efforts to bring about innovations in our in-house technology.
Our strength lies in the low-current consumption, low-voltage operation, and ultra-small package technologies we have developed over many years. As is the case with our protection ICs for lithium-ion batteries and our automotive memory products, many of our product lines hold some of the greatest market shares in the world and our products receive global praise for their high quality.
Analog semiconductor products will play a more critical role amid the accelerating progress being made in the shift to electronically enhanced vehicles and an IoT (Internet of Things) connected society. Accordingly, by leveraging synergy with the technological capabilities of the MinebeaMitsumi Group, a driver of the Japanese manufacturing industry, we will keep contributing to the enrichment of lives around the world under our vision of inspiring customers with our “Small, Smart, Simple” analog semiconductor solutions.
