"Through the combination of these resources and our systems expertise in infotainment networking, we will also open the door to new opportunities with prospective customers as infotainment applications are increasingly integrated into the automotive platform. We look forward to contributing to SMSC's business expansion and becoming part of an even larger leading semiconductor organization," Hetzel added.
