Rambus To Acquire Memory Interconnect Business From Inphi
Rambus has announced it has signed a definitive agreement to purchase the Memory Interconnect Business from Inphi Corporation for $90M in cash. The acquisition includes all assets of the Inphi Memory Interconnect Business including product inventory, customer contracts, supply chain agreements and intellectual property. The combined business further strengthens Rambus' market position for memory buffer chip products and amplifies execution for future memory programs to meet the needs of the server, networking and data centre market.
"We are constantly evaluating ways to build upon our solid foundation and grow our businesses in order to better meet the needs of today's market dynamics," said Dr. Ron Black, president and chief executive officer at Rambus. "By combining our buffer chip team with the Memory Interconnect Business of Inphi, we are able to instantly gain a strong market position and be well situated for future growth. This acquisition brings existing product revenue, proven technology, and faster time-to-market with a best-in-class memory technologies portfolio."
Inphi is a leading provider of high-speed analog and mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, having created solutions that accelerate the movement of data across a wide variety of applications in the server, data centre and computing markets. The combination of Inphi products and Rambus server DIMM chipset offerings will provide fast, efficient solutions and expand the Rambus product offerings.
This acquisition remains subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close during the third quarter of 2016. These acquired technologies will be part of the Rambus Memory and Interfaces Division.

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
