Mixed-Signal Innovator Chosen by Needham & Company for Steady Growth
and Overall Performance in 2012
AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Laboratories Inc. (Nasdaq: SLAB), a leader in high-performance,
analog-intensive, mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs), today
announced that it won the prestigious Analyst Favorite Semiconductor
Company Award presented by Needham & Company at the Global Semiconductor
Alliance Award Dinner Celebration held on December 13 in San Jose,

price or financial performance but steady improvements throughout 2012,"
said Vernon Essi, senior analyst for analog and mixed-signal
semiconductors, Needham & Company. "All of the nominees deserve
accolades for their 2012 performance and overall strategies. However, I

differentiated products. I am pleased to name Silicon Labs as the
recipient of this well-deserved award."
