>> 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.
