Intersil Corp. has signed a definitive agreement to acquire D2Audio Corp., a privately-held provider in the design of digital audio power amplifiers for consumer, commercial, automotive and professional audio applications.

Founded in 2002, D2Audio is the developer of the Digital Audio Engine (DAE) family of ICs, which deliver superior sound quality. The patented D2Audio technology monitors, perfects and enhances audio quality with real-time digital feedback.

"With the D2Audio acquisition, we expand our leadership position in the consumer market and broaden our growing product portfolio," said Dave Bell, CEO of Intersil. "D2Audio's innovative technologies work synergistically with Intersil's power and signal conditioning products," Bell said, "and we expect to leverage these new technologies to further penetrate new and existing markets."

D2Audio's intelligent amplifiers and D2Audio SoundSuite technology offer audio equipment manufacturers the highest possible sound quality that dramatically improves the consumer's listening experience. "We are very excited to be part of the Intersil family," said Brian Wong, D2Audio president and CEO. "We believe that D2Audio's products will further strengthen Intersil's leadership position in the consumer electronics market," Wong said.

The boards of directors of both companies have unanimously approved the merger.
