Acquisition Will Broaden Solutions Offering For Texas Instruments

Texas Instruments Inc., provider of DSP and analogue technologies to meet signal processing requirements, has acquired Chipcon, an international semi-conductor company. Combining Chipcon’s design experience in RF transceiver and system-on-chip devices with TI’s advanced analogue silicon technologies and broad systems expertise will enhance TI’s ability to offer customers complete short-range wireless solutions. The acquisition also broadens TI’s offering of RF solutions and strengthens the company’s position in ZigBee, a global standard for wireless monitoring and control applications.

Chipcon’s CEO, Geir Forre, will lead TI’s group, integrating short-range wireless personnel and products from both Chipcon and TI. Chipcon will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of TI and will continue to operate from its Oslo, Norway headquarters.
