>> 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.
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.
