Mediatek buys Intel Power Management chipset

Mediatek announced that it will acquire assets related to Intel’s Enpirion power management chip product line through its subsidiary Richtek.

It is unlikely that this deal will have a significant impact on the smartphone market, but it strengthens Taiwan’s Mediatek website and its competitiveness.

The total amount of the transaction is estimated at $ 85 million, and the date of completion of the transaction was initially set in the fourth quarter, provided that the actual date will be determined after the completion of the relevant legal procedures.

Mediatek said it will expand the production line after the completion of the merger, and provide integrated, high-frequency, high-efficiency power solutions for FPGA, SoC, CPU and ASIC semiconductors targeting enterprise-level system applications, to help expand the scale of operations, improve business performance and competitiveness.

The official Intel website states that the Enpirion Power Management Module is an advanced solution on the market that can integrate the components required for power management; In order to meet FPGA, ASIC, CPU and other semiconductor power requirements.

The power management chip is usually used in devices equipped with a battery as a power source, and is responsible for power transmission and distribution, and other energy management in the electronic equipment system.

The power management chip is mainly used to convert a source of voltage and current into a power source that microprocessors and sensors can use.

MediaTek is actively developing the ASIC specific circuit chip business for servers.

It has also reportedly received requests from Google to integrate the Enpirion product line, in order to obtain a more complete server solution, and to expand these solutions to the world of 5G modems.

It is reported that Intel sold its smartphone modem segment to Apple last year.
