Message from the President

May 2011
To our valued customers:
The mission of Holt Integrated Circuits is to provide the highest quality integrated circuit products with superior customer service to Aerospace and Industrial markets. It is also our objective to develop integrated circuits providing innovation and increasing levels of integration for the benefit of our customers’ products.   In addition we recognize and fulfill our customers need for the longevity of every product. Our first catalog was introduced over 20 years ago and today almost all of the listed products are still in volume production.   This is only made possible by successfully identifying vendors who share our long term commitment as well as defining products and processes that have enduring value.  
Along the way, we have continued to make investments in people, new technologies, and infrastructure which have allowed us to expand and accelerate our product offerings.   Today we offer a variety of data communications products including our newest introductions of highly integrated solutions for ARINC 429, MIL-STD-1553, and ARINC 825 (CAN) bus interface and data management.   The focus of our product strategy is to find the next level of integration which often mates challenging analog interfaces with unique data handling options on the same silicon.   We believe if we provide our customers with a smaller footprint, more powerful dedicated data processing, and the inherent cost savings and reliability of combining significant resources on a single chip, then we will share in our customer’s success.
Our product strategy is driven by feedback and collaboration with you, the customer engineer.   We continually solicit your ideas and needs to guide our developments.   A unique attribute of our business model is that we typically achieve our volumes by delivering each product to numerous customers, sometimes in small or very small quantities.   A benefit of this model is the stability of our base business. A benefit to our customers is the recognition of their needs for new technology and competitive advantages despite low volumes.    In this regard, I invite you to dream of ways that we could combine your functional needs in a single IC to achieve higher levels of integration. Please click on Customer Feedback or call us with that idea.  
Finally as you consider Holt as your IC supplier, I invite you to consider our historical performance for delivering product quality and reliability in the field.   We are especially proud of our record.   This has been and remains a top priority focus for all employees at Holt IC.    We have years of experience applying new technology to bus-related products.
I sincerely invite your ideas, criticisms, and comments. Please feel free to contact me anytime at 1-949-859-8800. 
Thank you for considering Holt IC as your technology partner,
David Mead
