National Semiconductor was founded in Danbury, Connecticut by Dr. Bernard J. Rothlein on May 27, 1959, when he and seven colleagues, Edward N. Clarke, Joseph J. Gruber, Milton Schneider, Robert L. Hopkins, Robert L. Hoch, Richard N. Rau and Arthur V. Siefert, left their employment at the semiconductor division of Sperry Rand Corporation.

On September 23, 2011, the company formally became part of Texas Instruments as the "Silicon Valley" division.

The lighting is moving from power hungry incandescent bulbs to fluorescent, LED or HID lamps. Fairchild Semiconductors have designs for Lighting applications too.

Smart Power Module SPM evaluation board

This motion Smart Power Module SPM evaluation board is designed to evaluate Fairchild Semiconductor’s SPM3V2_V4 and SPM45H SPM families of parts.

The motion SPM is installed as the motor power module on the evaluation board to drive a three-phase AC Induction Motor (ACIM), Brushless DC (BLDC) motor, Brushless AC (BLAC) motor, or Permanent-Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM). A Switched-Mode Power Supply (SMPS) is integrated into the design, along with the necessary bulk capacitors and microcontroller (MCU) interface circuitry.
