>> Osaka-based MegaChips will acquire SiTime, a leader in the MEMS timing market for $200 million in cash.

Great buy - I have never seen a more nicher area than timing mechanism in MEMS including XLs and gyros. The timing is such a huge challenge for designers and buying a small leader in that sector is small acquisition.

@Junko: it looks like Dialog focused on acquiring mainstream power management components companies like iWatt. MEMS does not appear to be in its gunsights.

I hope it was a good exit for SiTime folks.

SiTime - Dialog?

I seem to recall that SiTime has done some research with Dialog on stacking its MEMS oscillator for crystal replacement on top of a Dialog PMIC. Peter Clarke reported that a year ago. I wonder whatever happened to the research project; and I also wonder why Dialog wasn't interested in acquiring SiTime.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
