Emerson and Motorola Inc. have announced that the two companies have entered into a definitive agreement under which Emerson will acquire Motorola's Embedded Communications Computing (ECC) business for $350 million in cash.

Upon completion of the transaction, Motorola's ECC business will become part of Emerson Network Power. The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of the calendar year and is subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals.

Motorola's ECC business had a revenue of approximately $520 million in 2006. It is a provider of embedded computing products and services to communication infrastructure and equipment manufacturers in telecommunications, medical imaging, defense and aerospace and industrial automation. Based in Arizona, Motorola's ECC business has approximately 1,100 employees.

Emerson Network Power and Motorola ECC embedded computing technologies specifically feature industry standards known as Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (AdvancedTCA) and Micro Telecommunications Computing Architecture (MicroTCA). These standards are being adopted by major telecom companies because they increase network capacity while lowering the total cost of ownership.
