TI has acquired CICLON Semiconductor Device. The acquisition expands TI's capability to improve energy efficiency in today's end-equipment designs, including high-power computing and server systems.
"Combining CICLON's technology and expertise with TI's industry-leading power management semiconductor portfolio gives us a tremendous advantage when solving customers' complex power design requirements," said Steve Anderson, senior vice president for TI's Power Management business unit.
