Re: Aquire Dialog

Dialog is a public company so it could be expensive (but not impossible) to acquire the whole company.

But anyone can get hold of a piece of the company by buying the publicly traded shares.

For reasons outlined in the article Dialog might instead go for a software acquisition such as Movea SA of Grenoble ( through which it can offer value to the handset makers without getting involved in the delivery of the punishingly low-cost inertial MEMS.  

Those inertial MEMS are really a game for manufacturers such as ST and Bosch and even they are looking to get into higher ASP MEMS.

I reckon that if Dialog does acquire a MEMS hardware company it should be in one of the newer areas where there is room to charge a decent ASP and grow with the market. So that might be RF MEMS, oscillator MEMS, or gas sensors, lab-on-a-chip and so on.

Dialog would be a great aquisition for one of the large analog players like ADI or Freescale or Infineon that are looking to break the TI/Nationa/Linearl stranglehold on the PMIC market...

Sounds like the startup Colin wrote about

would be one good prospect, though no doubt there are many and MEMS is indeed a place to be as you have known for some time, Peter!

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
