Conexant Systems, Inc.
Conexant is a fabless semiconductor company that, amongst other things, specializes in the design of a number of convergence video products such as Demodulator, MPEG2 Encoder, and A/V Decoder chipsets. Conexant was formed, in 1999, when Rockwell Semiconductor was spun off from its parent company, Rockwell International. For its part, Conexant's convergence video operations can trace their origins to 1996, when the former Rockwell Semiconductor had acquired Brooktree Corporation. Conexant become a fabless design house in 2002, when it spun off its manufacturing facilities as Jazz Semiconductor, and has since outsourced product production to other semiconductor foundries.
