Skorpios Technologies, Inc., an Albuquerque, NM-based System on Chip (SoC) company, acquired Novati Technologies LLC, a semiconductor integration company and fab located in Austin, TX.
The amount of the acquisition – closed on Oct. 2, 2017 – was not disclosed. The combined corporation will be called Skorpios Technologies.
This acquisition gives Skorpios the ability to meet the growing customer demand via the vertical integration of its proprietary heterogeneous integration process, decreased fab cycle times and faster time to market.
Led by Stephen Krasulick, chairman, founder and CEO, Skorpios delivers integrated products based upon its proprietary, wafer-scale, heterogeneous integration process, which process leverages the existing silicon manufacturing ecosystem to enable high bandwidth interconnectivity at mature CMOS manufacturing costs. The company’s platform can be used to address a wide range of applications including high speed video, data and voice communications for networking, cloud computing, consumer, medical, and more.
Prior to the acquisition, Skorpios had developed its heterogeneous integration process in collaboration with Novati, and was building its ICs in Novati’s Austin, TX-based foundry, which is known for its innovative work in 2.5D/3D integration, photonics, MEMS sensors, micro fluidics for medical, and more. After the acquisition, Skorpios will immediately ramp up production, starting with its 100Gb QSFP CWDM4 product.
