PLX Technology Inc. has signed a definitive agreement to acquire HiNT Corp., a semiconductor supplier of PCI and PCI-X bridge chips.

The combined company will provide electronic equipment suppliers with a single source for a complete selection of advanced interconnect chips and design support. The PCI, PCI-X, and HyperTransport standards are the architectural foundation for a broad range of communications, server, storage, and embedded control systems.

"PLX and HiNT share a common vision to be the leading supplier of I/O interconnect silicon to the communications, storage, server, and embedded control markets," said Michael Salameh, president of PLX. "Both companies have market leadership positions in complementary products based on PCI, today's most widely used interconnect technology. Both have begun IC product development based on PCI Express technology, PCI's next-generation interconnect. Each company has experienced management and engineering teams that have proven their ability to define and execute differentiated products," he added.
