Business Review
Revenue for the third quarter improved sequentially due to strength in both the C&C and I&I businesses. Seasonal growth in C&C, particularly in computing, increased C&C revenue to its highest point since 2014. The ramp of next generation PC processors continued to drive demand for the company's computing power products, and design win traction in mobile platforms remained strong.

Strength across a number of product areas contributed broadly to the I&I sequential revenue improvement and year-over-year growth. I&I power revenue reached its highest level in six quarters, with power modules achieving record revenue in the quarter.

Intersil's automotive revenue reached record levels as well. The company also introduced new products in Q3 that address the major trends in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and around view displays.

"The third quarter marked a significant milestone for us as we achieved the gross and operating margin goals we set for the business. The top line has continued to show progress towards our goal as well, as new product investments translated into solid year-over-year revenue growth. This reflects the high quality foundation of the business we've built over the last three years," said Necip Sayiner, president and CEO of Intersil. "Strong execution has been an important aspect of our turnaround efforts and we have been able to successfully intersect a number of key trends with our power management and precision analog solutions in every one of our target end markets. With power efficiency becoming a consistent thread through virtually every application, we believe Intersil solutions can be central to the evolution of next-generation electronics."
