Skorpios Technologies, a system on chip (SoC) specialist, announced this week that it has acquired Novati Technologies, a semiconductor and MEMS integration company whose fab is located in Austin, Texas. The acquisition closed this week for an undisclosed amount. This acquisition gives Skorpios the ability to better meet growing customer demand via vertical integration of its proprietary heterogeneous integration process by increasing volume throughput and allowing control of its critical supply chain. Skorpios said that it expects to now have decreased fab cycle times by providing access to focused production lines in the foundry. As a result, the company expects to have a faster time to market as well expediting development of new products, resulting in accelerated revenue realization.
