Maxim acquires two product lines from Zilog

Acquires Wireless Control and Secured Transaction product lines from Zilog

By CBR Staff Writer

Maxim Integrated Products, a manufacturer of semiconductor products, has acquired the Wireless Control and Secured Transaction product lines from Zilog, a supplier of embedded system-on-chip services.

Maxim and Universal Electronics have jointly purchased the Wireless Control business of Zilog. Maxim purchased the hardware portion of the Wireless Control product line from Zilog, which consists of the microcontroller silicon chip business and supporting intellectual property.

Maxim intends to combine the Zilog wireless microcontroller product line with its own ultra-low power Infrared microcontroller family. Universal Electronics (UEI) purchased the software portion of Zilog’s Wireless Control product line, which consists of its patents, universal remote database and software, and related assets.

Maxim has also acquired Zilog’s Secure Transaction product line, which features the Zatara 32-bit arm-based microcontroller family of high performance Arm system-on-chips (SoCs) used in PCI payment terminals.

Chris Neil, division vice president of Maxim, said: Maxim’s purchase of the Secure Transaction business is consistent with our strategy to strengthen our position in the POS and A markets. This acquisition allows us to further leverage the application and software expertise recently added by our purchase of Innova Card to create the highest performance, fully integrated SoCs and most complete open software platform for financial transaction terminal markets.
