The company is interested in acquiring Renesas' LSI chip production facility and converting it to a CMOS sensor facility.
Deal for flash storage processor provider gives LSI an expanded position in the market for solid-state drives made with NAND flash memory chips.
The storage acquisition cauldron bubbles. Both HP and LSI/Engenio buy relatively small scale-out NAS file system players. Is there a connection? Is this an emerging trend?
The chipmaker pinches Robert Payne from Philips Semiconductors to fill the position.
The company plans to separate its storage systems unit from its mainstream semiconductor business and is considering an IPO for the new company.
Major semiconductor maker signs deal to use nanotube-based memory technology from Nantero, just weeks after LSI Logic licensed it.
The chipmaker says it is acquiring IBM's Mylex unit as a way to expand its presence in the storage systems market.
LSI Logic and Hitachi Global Storage Technologies are joining forces to work on creating better serial-attached SCSI connections, which should rev up data transfer speeds for disk drives.
LSI Logic on Tuesday completed its acquisition of the RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) unit from American Megatrends. LSI, a custom chipmaker, paid $221 million in cash for the unit, representative Kevin Brett said. As part of the deal, Milpitas, Calif.-based LSI gets AMI's MegaRAID software intellectual property and host bus adapter products. These boards support Fibre Channel, SCSI and other storage input/output standards. LSI Logic also acquired more than 200 RAID employees, including 120 hardware and software engineers based in Norcross, Ga.; Fremont, Calif., and other locations. The deal was first announced in late May.
