Avago Technologies has acquired Infineon Technologies AG's bulk acoustic wave (BAW) business, based in Munich, Germany for approximately 21.5 million euros in cash.

Infineon's BAW business complements Avago's existing film bulk acoustic resonator (FBAR) filtering technologies. The acquisition provides Avago with several strategic assets, including a strong IP portfolio and highly experienced R&D team, which forms the core team for its recently established wireless R&D center in Munich, Germany. The development team will focus on building upon Avago's existing FBAR filter product portfolio, which offers industry leading performance and manufacturability. The BAW products will be discontinued and obsolescence notices have been sent to affected customers.

"The acquisition of Infineon's BAW business is in line with Avago's commitment to strengthening our position in the analog RF wireless market," said Bryan Ingram, senior VP and general manager of Avago's wireless semiconductor division. "The Infineon team pioneered BAW filter design and manufacturing techniques, which are complementary to our existing FBAR filter technologies."
