>> 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
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
