October 06, 2002 by Jeff Shepard

AMI Semiconductor Inc. (AMIS, Pocatello, ID) announced that it has acquired the micro power products division of Microsemi Corp. (Irvine, CA). Financial details were not disclosed. The purchase marks the second acquisition to be completed by AMIS this year, and follows the recently completed integration of the mixed-signal business activities of Alcatel Microelectronics (Belgium) by AMIS.

“AMI Semiconductor is very excited about this acquisition,” said Christine King, AMIS president and CEO. “In addition to new medical customers and developed products, we will acquire a great deal of know-how in developing low-voltage/low-power medical devices. This addition of expertise is consistent with our focus at AMIS to continue to provide world-class, mixed-signal solutions to our customers.”
