Freescale Semiconductor has signed a definitive agreement to purchase Intoto, Inc., a provider of software platform products for networking and communications equipment manufacturers.

Freescale intends to apply Intoto's technology and talent to create high-performance applications and software components optimised to improve system performance, streamline development and enhance software support for its QorIQ multi-core communications platforms.
