The need for faster networking among automotive components has led companies such as Micrel and Marvell to develop Ethernet solutions capable of operating in the automotive environment.
Micrel agreed to acquire Altos Semiconductor, a maker of temperature sensing products used in computers, in a cash deal. Micrel paid $1.8 million for the firm, buying its outstanding shares. "As form factors shrink and performance improvements out-pace power reduction techniques, system temperatures are rising ever higher. Our nascent line of sensors and system management ICs will provide simple solutions to this increasingly prevalent system design issue," Micrel CEO Ray Zinn said in a statement.
