MILPITAS, Calif., Oct. 5 -- Oxford Semiconductor Inc., a maker of high-performance connectivity controllers for the storage, multimedia communication, computing and industrial markets, has acquired Irvine, Calif.-based TransDimension Inc., a provider of USB connectivity solutions for embedded applications. Oxford officials say the move strengthens the company's connectivity product portfolio and expands its global presence through the creation of a new, US-based parent company.

Oxford Semiconductor says it's acquisition of TransDimension makes it the preeminent supplier of complete FireWire- and USB-based connectivity solutions for the rapidly growing consumer electronics, storage, audio and add-on card markets. It says the acquisition also enhances the new company's prospects for the successful participation in wireless USB, projected to be widely used in many future consumer, storage and PC peripheral applications.

Formerly headquartered in the UK, Oxford Semiconductor has relocated its headquarters to Milpitas. The company will maintain its UK design center as well as its regional offices in North America, Singapore and Taiwan. TransDimension's Irvine facility will remain in place. TransDimension's product portfolio will become one of four product lines at Oxford; as a wholly owned subsidiary, TransDimension will change its name to Oxford Semiconductor.
