Intel acquires SiPort for digital radio technologies

From the SiPort web site:

Dear Valued Customer:

On May 25, 2011 Intel Corporation acquired SiPort. On behalf of Intel Corporation, we want to take this opportunity to assure you of Intel’s commitment to our customers and a seamless transition.

Digital radio is poised to become an important ingredient for handsets and other mobile devices as broadcast radio transitions from analog to digital. Intel’s acquisition of SiPort enhances our abilities to continue as the leading provider of low power, single-chip CMOS solutions enabling wide spread adoption of broadcast digital radio. SiPort’s digital radio expertise and solutions will leverage Intel’s market and technology leadership to provide best-in-class digital radio solutions. 

The sales support and order management system provided by SiPort prior to the acquisition will continue in a ‘business as usual model’ for your product support needs on SiPort branded products. We are currently in transition planning phase, with the objective of making this transition as smooth as possible for you. Please be assured that as transition plans firm up we will provide you with detailed updates. 

Please continue to contact the sales representative you worked with at SiPort before the acquisition for support or questions until directed otherwise by Intel through future communications.

Intel is excited about this acquisition and values your business. We look forward to working with you during this transition and in the future. Thank you in advance for your support during this transition.
