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.
