Mediatek buys Intel Power Management chipset

Announced a company Mediatek will acquire assets related to Intel’s named Power Management Chipset product line Enpirion Through its affiliate Richtek Corporation.

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 indicated that it will expand its product line After completion of the merger, it provides high-frequency, high-efficiency integrated power solutions for FPGA, SoC, CPU and ASIC semiconductors targeting enterprise-level system applications, to help scale operations and improve business performance and competitiveness.

The official Intel website states that the Enpirion Power Management Module is a cutting-edge solution on the market that can integrate the required power management components 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 the power source, and is responsible for power transmission, 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 integrated circuit chip business for a specific use ASIC 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.
