Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) announced that it has finalized its previously announced acquisition of Chipcon, a company that designs short-range, low-power wireless RF transceiver devices. This acquisition will enable TI to provide customers with ZigBee-compliant solutions and a broad range of proprietary RF chips that are said to enable low-power wireless applications.

The acquisition combines Chipcon's RF portfolio, technical support and development tools with TI's analog silicon technologies and sales network.

Chipcon offers proprietary low-power CMOS RF ICs for wireless applications in the 300MHz to 1000MHz, and 2.4GHz ISM frequency bands. This product portfolio includes transceivers as well as SoC solutions, which is said to deliver everything the designer needs in a single die without requiring off-chip memory.

Chipcon will continue to operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of TI from its headquarters in Oslo, Norway, as well as from its software design center in San Diego, California. TI is paying approximately $200 million for the acquisition.
