Conexant to acquire Freescale’s ‘Sigmatel’ Multi-Function Printer Product Lines

Conexant has signed a definitive agreement with Freescale Semiconductor to acquire its “SigmaTel” multi-function printer (MFP) imaging product lines.
The single-chip solutions were developed by SigmaTel, prior to its acquisition by Freescale. Multi-function printers feature copy, fax, and scan capabilities. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, and is expected to close within the next 30 days. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

More than 50 Freescale employees, primarily based in Waltham, Massachusetts, are expected to join Conexant’s Imaging and PC Media (IPM) group when the transaction closes. The design team has extensive expertise in printer and imaging technologies, and has developed and delivered solutions with industry-leading processing speeds to major printer manufacturers worldwide.

Conexant will also acquire Freescale’s SigmaTel digital photo frame product lines, which allow users to view and share photos from traditional digital cameras, camera phones, and photo-sharing Web sites on high-resolution LCD displays. SigmaTel’s multimedia applications processor technology will be excluded from the acquisition.
