Rocketdyne, a rocket engine manufacturer stripped from North American Airlines in 1955, was re-acquired in 1984, when Rocketdyne occupied most of the US rocket engine market. Rockwell also acquired the Light Commercial Aircraft Manufacturer Air Commander Company and introduced the newly designed Rockville Commander 112 and 114 aircraft.
Desktop calculatorNorth American Airlines once built a MOSFET-based desktop calculator for its engineers. After Rockville acquired North American Airlines in 1967, it established a factory specializing in the production of such a calculator, which later became Rockwell Semiconductor. Rockwell Semiconductor's modem chip is its most famous product.
Audio decoder chipConexant provides audio chips to US manufacturers such as Hewlett-Packard, Dell and Thinkpad. The main chip models are CX20468, CX20493, etc. of Conexant AC97, and CX20561, CX20549 and CX20708 of Conexant HD Audio. Conexant did not release the public version of the driver, but issued the sound card driver to the computer manufacturer, which led to the drivers provided by the various vendors are not universal.
MindSpeed, which specializes in high-speed communication chip design and production from Conexant, has integrated two to four ARM7 TDMI cores in its various high-speed communication chips.
In 2017, Synaptics, a leader in providing human-machine interface development solutions, announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire Conexant Systems, LLC and Marvell's multimedia businesses for $ 395 million in cash and 726,666 Synaptics common shares.
Conexant is product portfolio consists of Audio codecs, HD audio ADCs, audio DSPs, voice processors, embedded modems, and audio/imaging solutions.
