Power Integrations, a manufacturer of high-voltage integrated circuits, has acquired CT-Concept Technologie AG. Switzerland-based Concept is a developer of integrated, energy-efficient drivers for high-voltage IGBT modules.

Concept's products are used in a range of high-voltage power-conversion applications including industrial motor drives, renewable energy generation, electric trains and trams, high-voltage DC transmission, electric cars and medical equipment.

Concept team, which includes total 65 employees, will remain at the company's Switzerland headquarters, which will serve as Power Integrations' centre of excellence for high-voltage driver design.

Balu Balakrishnan, president and CEO, Power Integrations, said, "The acquisition of Concept expands our footprint in the high-voltage power-conversion market, enabling us to bring the same benefits of integration—reliability, efficiency and ease of design—to high-power systems that we have long brought to lower-power applications."
