We design, develop, manufacture and sell a wide range of semiconductor integrated circuit (“IC”) products, including microcontrollers, advanced logic, mixed-signal, nonvolatile memory and radio frequency (“RF”) components. Leveraging a broad intellectual property (“IP”) portfolio, we supply our customers complete system solutions, with particular emphasis on solutions incorporating microcontrollers. These complex system-on-a-chip solutions are manufactured using our leading-edge process technologies, including complementary metal oxide semiconductor (“CMOS”), double-diffused metal oxide semiconductor (“DMOS”), logic, CMOS logic, bipolar, bipolar CMOS (“BiCMOS”), silicon germanium (“SiGe”), SiGe BiCMOS, analog, bipolar double diffused CMOS and radiation tolerant process technologies. We develop these process technologies ourselves to ensure they provide the maximum possible performance. In 2008, we fabricated approximately 93% of our products in our own wafer fabrication facilities, or “fabs.” We believe our ICs enable our customers to rapidly introduce leading edge electronic products that are differentiated by higher performance, advanced security features, lower cost, smaller size, longer battery life and more memory. Our products are used primarily in the following markets: industrial, consumer electronics, automotive, wireless communications, computing, storage, security, military and aerospace.
 
We were originally incorporated in California in December 1984. In October 1999, we were reincorporated in Delaware. Our principal offices are located at 2325 Orchard Parkway, San Jose, California 95131, and our telephone number is (408) 441-0311. Our website is located at: www.atmel.com; however, the information in, or that can be accessed through, our website is not part of this report. Our annual reports on Form 10-K, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, current reports on Form 8-K, and amendments to such reports are available, free of charge, through the “Investors” section of our website as soon as reasonably practicable after we electronically file such material with, or furnish it to, the SEC.

General
 
Semiconductor integrated circuits (“ICs”) are key components in almost all electronic products and systems produced. Their capacity to process and store information gives manufacturers of electronic products an ability to add new features, adapt to changing demands and quickly develop new products. As additional semiconductor elements are added into smaller areas, ICs offer valuable new capabilities important to manufacturers of electronic products.
 
We design, develop, manufacture and sell a wide range of IC products, including microcontrollers, advanced logic, mixed-signal, nonvolatile memory and radio frequency (“RF”) components. Leveraging on a broad intellectual property (IP) portfolio, Atmel is able to provide the electronics industry with complete system solutions. These complex system-on-a-chip solutions are manufactured using our leading-edge process technologies, including complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS), double-diffused metal oxide semiconductor (DMOS), logic, CMOS logic, bipolar, bipolar CMOS (“BiCMOS”), silicon germanium (“SiGe”), SiGe BiCMOS, analog, bipolar double diffused CMOS and radiation tolerant process technologies. We develop these process technologies ourselves to ensure they provide the maximum possible performance. In 2006, we fabricated approximately 95% of our products in our own wafer fabrication facilities, or “fabs.” We believe our broad portfolio of manufacturing capabilities allows us to produce ICs that enable our customers to rapidly introduce leading edge electronic products that are differentiated by higher performance, advanced security features, lower cost, smaller size, longer battery life and more memory. Our products are used primarily in the following markets: communications, computing, consumer electronics, storage, security, automotive, medical, military and aerospace.
 
In July 2006, we completed the sale of our Grenoble, France, subsidiary to e2v technologies plc, a British corporation. We have reclassified the results of our Grenoble, France, subsidiary as Discontinued Operations for all periods presented in this Annual Report on Form 10-K. For further information, see Note 18 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements. In December 2006, we announced restructuring initiatives that include seeking to sell our North Tyneside, United Kingdom, and Heilbronn, Germany, facilities to optimize our manufacturing operations. We also announced our intention to move to a fab-lite manufacturing model with increased utilization of third-party foundry capacity. On May 1, 2007, we announced the sale of our Irving, Texas, wafer fabrication facility for $37 million in cash.
