NORWOOD, USA: Analog Devices Inc. has acquired Multigig Inc., a small, privately-held San Jose, California, company specializing in highly innovative high-performance clocking technology. The acquisition will enhance ADI’s clocking capabilities in stand-alone and embedded applications, and will strengthen ADI’s industry-leading position in delivering high-speed data converters and signal processing solutions for customers.
“The acquisition of Multigig fits squarely in the middle of our high-speed signal processing strategy and will further strengthen our portfolio of very high performance stand-alone and integrated clocking solutions,” said Peter Real, ADI VP of Linear and Radio Frequency products and technology. “Continually evolving end markets such as wireless and wire line communications place ever more stringent demands on signal processing solutions and high-performance clocking capabilities are critical to meeting customers’ system requirements.”
Analog Devices acquired Multigig Inc. in a cash transaction completed on March 30, 2012. The engineers will become part of ADI’s existing clock design team and will move to ADI’s San Jose, CA facility.
