Prior to Summit's founding, Myers was a design manager for National Semiconductor and Fairchild Semiconductor. Before that he spent 14 years with Xicor as a design and operations manager.

Summit Microelectronics designs, develops, and manufactures programmable analog integrated circuits for the manufacturers of telecommunications and data communications switching equipment.

The company uses an electrically erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM) process that allows customer programmability for trim and calibration functions. Many of the circuits in the company's portfolio offer extra EEPROM cells that can be used for any system memory function.

Currently, the company produces circuits for hot swap control, microprocessor supervision and reset control, in-circuit trim and calibration and environmental monitoring.
