Texas Instruments Inc has announced that it has acquired Integrated Circuit Designs, Inc. (ICD), a privately-held company that specialises in the design of RFIC's. Combining ICD's design expertise with TI's extensive high-performance analogue and low-power microcontroller product portfolio will enhance TI's ability to provide industry-leading low-power RF solutions for industrial, commercial and consumer applications.

This acquisition is the latest strategic move by TI to strengthen its low-power RF portfolio and follows the successful acquisition of Chipcon, a leading provider of short-range, low-power RF transceivers for ZigBee-compliant and proprietary-based wireless systems.

"With the rapidly growing demand for industrial, commercial and residential systems to incorporate more short-range wireless technology, it is important for TI to provide a broad portfolio of innovative RF devices. The addition of ICD's design expertise will complement our existing low-power wireless business and enhance our ability to offer customers complete RF solutions," said David Jones, Precision Analog business manager at TI.

Edward Chalfin, founder, chairman and president of ICD, said, "We are very excited to join Texas Instruments and expand TI's existing design resources and expertise in the field of low-power RF."
