MANHASSET, N.Y. Mixed-signal semiconductor supplier TDK Semiconductor Corp., has changed its name to Teridian Semiconductor Corp., effective immediately.
In April, private equity firm Golden Gate Capital, in partnership with the semiconductor management team of TDK, acquired
the Irvine, Calif.-based company from TDK-USA, a subsidiary of the Japan-based TDK Corp., for an undisclosed amount.
"The company's new name, Teridian Semiconductor Corp., represents an important step in our evolution as a leading mixed-signal device company. We believe the timing of the re-branding is especially important as we launch a number of new products in the residential and industrial meter, smart card reader, Ethernet, and WAN markets," said Gerald Fitch, president and chief executive of Teridian Semiconductor Corp., in a statement.
