Hi there. Welcome, everyone. Thanks for your interest in Maxim’s automotive business and it’s a pleasure for me to represent that business. I’ve been with Maxim for over 19 years and I’ve been with this automotive group nearly from the very first days a little over 11 years. And I’ve actually spent 20 years of my career developing advanced mixed board automotive ICs. So I have a long history in automotive.

I actually initially started out in powertrain and safety applications. But when I moved here to Maxim, we actually started out with body electronics and infotainment. So early on, our model was to take our consumer grade products and convert them over to what we call slash V for vehicle. And we used a lot of that IP to gain traction in the automotive marketplace. And then since then, we’ve been developing more and more product lines and expanding our SAM base, as well as our technologies. And we’re confident that the run we’re on is going to continue for quite a few years for sure.

Yes. So early on, we went after infotainment that’s where our strongest product was and some body electronics. And we see the next wave of growth really coming out of electrification, which is a large focus on battery management systems for electric vehicle. There’s also some electrification occurring with converting over mechanical systems or hydraulic systems to electrical. We’re also participating in those events and then also ADAS converted these advanced drivers assistance for us safety-related.

So electrification is really focused on cleaning up the environment and ADAS s really focused on saving lives as kind of how we look at it. And I told you a little bit about our early days in infotainment. One of the things is that for eight years, I ran R&D for our smartphone applications. And it blended that that experience on this software in converting IP over to the infotainment as the vehicles expanded very quickly and providing the smartphone kind of user interface in the standard stack of the car. That business is going to continue to grow as well.

But in today’s call, we will focus more on the electrification and ADAS. Yes. So you can see here that over the last five years, we’ve had a 30% CAGR, very strong. They’re actually outgrowing the market. And you can see that most of it actually is in the infotainment area. But you can see ADAS and electrical vehicles electrification, they are showing up in 2017 forecast. And that’s going to continue to grow at a higher rate than some of the other areas that we’ve been investing in. So that’s why we’re focusing on ADAS and electrification today.

The business is very diversified. I like that – I always like to say that, we hit singles and doubles, so we’re diversified our product lines, as well as customers, as well as technology. I feel good about that. The – you can see here that the electrification or electric vehicles whether they be – this includes hybrids, as well as full EVs and plug-in EVs. You can see here the – from 2017 to 2022, the scare of the vehicles is going conceivably from 5% to a 11%, and actually a tripling of production for electric vehicles. And you can see here by the background, obviously, the air quality is really starting to improve.
