Who we are and what we do

Leading Edge Technology; from digital healthcare to 5G connectivity, from autonomous and electric vehicles to the digitised factory, Analog Devices is passionate about turning tomorrow’s possibilities into reality, making the world smarter, safer, healthier and greener. Wherever digital meets physical, we’re there. Virtually every wireless call, text, and download today passes through an Analog Devices IC. Our automotive battery monitoring technology is used in the majority of petrol and diesel engine cars with engine start-stop functionality. This helped prevent 33 million metric tons of carbon vehicle emissions last year globally, which is more than half of all the carbon emissions the whole of Ireland produces in a single year. In digital x-ray imaging our technology enables delivery of increasingly high image fidelity at lower radiation dosages. Because we are dedicated to solving the toughest engineering challenges, Analog Devices is one of the top 10 semiconductor companies in the world.

We don’t just talk about innovation, we live it. At ADI, we believe that work should be exciting and meaningful. We encourage initiative and creativity, and we actively support the free exchange of ideas.
