Dialog Semiconductor Acquires Sarnoff Corp. CMOS Imaging Business
Jul 2002
KIRCHHEIM/TECK-NABERN, Germany, July 2 --Dialog Semiconductor announced yesterday it has acquired the CMOS imaging business and associated CMOS Active Pixel Sensor (APS) patent portfolio from New Jersey-based Sarnoff Corp., the research and development institute formerly known as RCA Laboratories.

The two companies will partner for long-term development of imaging technology, and Sarnoff will continue its CMOS business in advanced imaging for medical, government and low-volume applications.

Effective immediately, the new technology extends Dialog's product portfolio. Its power management and audio chipsets are already established in mobile phones, and now Dialog can offer advanced camera-on-a-chip technology as a high-volume fabless CMOS imaging company.

As part of the agreement, a core team from Sarnoff will transfer and implement the technology at Dialog. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
