Integrated Device Technology (IDT) Inc. has announced the separate acquisitions of NXP Semiconductor NV's high speed data converter assets. The company also purchased Alvand Technologies Inc., an analog company specializing in data converters.

IDT hopes that the deals would strengthen its position in the wireless infrastructure market. The company said it could now offer technologies designed for wireless base stations, such as RF components, analog-to-digital converters, digital-to-analog converters and other products.

Ted Tewksbury, IDT's CEO, stated that the deal will enable them to deliver what customers have asked for C a complete signal chain lineup from antenna to network.

Tewksbury further stated that NXP's data converter portfolio provides leading edge production and Alvand's IP would be critical to IDT's next-generation product roadmap. He also stated that having access to all the critical analog and digital functions in the base station uniquely positions IDT to optimize our customers' system-level performance, power, cost and time-to-market.

Earlier this year, IDT�acquired connectivity chip vendor PLX Technology Inc.�in a cash and stock deal worth about $330 million.
