PLX will also give Teranetics two promissory notes for approximately $6.9 million for up to three years from the close of the deal, which is expected to be in October.

In addition, PLX will take over some $18 million of Teranetics debt, employee bonuses and transaction expenses.

Teranetics owns the world's first and only fully integrated single-chip implementation of single-port and dual-port 10GBase-T PHY silicon.
