In 2001, Mitel sold both its PBX business division and corporate name. The remaining part of the original company was then renamed Zarlink Semiconductor.

In October 2005, Zarlink sold its RF Front-End technology (TV tuner and demodulator) business line to Intel. Intel has incorporated the Zarlink products into its Demodulator and Tuner Division (DTD), and they are now marketed under new part numbers. See Intel.



The specifications for Zarlink ICs were usually freely available. Consequently, these chips are typically well supported under Linux.
