Freescale Semiconductor has signed an agreement to purchase Intoto Inc., a provider of software platform products for networking and communications equipment manufacturers.

The company intends to apply Intoto's technology and talent to create high-performance applications and software components optimized to improve system performance, streamline development and enhance software support for its QorIQ multicore communications platforms. QorIQ platforms are Freescale's new brand of communications processors designed to take embedded multicore to new levels of adoption.

"Successful multicore development requires a deep understanding of how the architecture, applications and OS integrate to achieve system solution and performance goals," said Lynelle McKay, senior VP and general manager for Freescale's networking and multimedia group. "Intoto's leading-edge development team strengthens our QorIQ solution and helps us offer our customers software applications expertise that assists their migration to embedded multicore."

The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close within the next 30 days. Terms of the agreement are not disclosed.
