Chip vendors boost the future of IoT business through acquisition

December 25 news, according to foreign media reports, the Netherlands Xsens Technologies (hereinafter referred to as "Xsens") is a Hollywood star, designed 3D motion tracking technology and body tracking software, its technology is widely used by Hollywood studios.

Fairchild Semiconductor (Fairchild Semiconductor) announced in April that it will acquire Xsens for $60 million (approximately RMB 368 million) and acquire the latter's motion tracking technology and expertise in the emerging Internet of Things market. Get ahead.

Some M&A deals in the chip industry last year showed that companies are enhancing their technology and product capabilities to better capture the opportunities in the IoT market. According to Hedgeye Risk Management, as of August 25, there were 142 mergers and acquisitions in the chip industry, more than any year since 2010.

Matthew Ramsey, an analyst at Canaccord Genuity, an investment company, said: “Most analysts' forecasts show that the number of IoT devices will increase from the current 12.5 billion to 25 billion to 50 billion by 2020.” The fastest is embedded non-consumer devices. ”

IoT spending increased by 14%

Market research firm IDC expects that with 15 billion IoT devices, next year's IoT spending will increase by 14% this year to US$1.7 trillion (approximately RMB 10.41 trillion). IDC expects that the number of IoT devices will reach 30 billion in 2020, and IoT spending will reach 3 trillion US dollars (approximately 18.37 trillion yuan).

The M&A transactions in 2014 showed that chip vendors hope to become big winners in the Internet of Things. This month, Silicon Valley chip makers Cypress Semiconductor and Spansion announced a $4 billion (RMB25.4 billion) swap deal. The deal will create a company with annual revenues of up to 2 billion U.S. dollars (about 12.3 billion U.S. dollars), products that cover flash memory and other key IoT memory chips, as well as many microcontroller chips for IoT products. The detachable controller chip has been used in 3D car dashboard control devices.

According to John Kispert, chief executive officer of ISP, Cypress Semiconductor and FIS acquisitions will bring operational efficiency, economies of scale, higher coverage in markets such as Japan, and the Internet of Things, cars, Key technology markets such as industry and communications.

The two companies are expected to save more than $135 million (approximately RMB 827 million) in expenditure within three years, and will increase non-GAAP profits within one year of completion of the transaction.

NXP Semiconductors acquired Quintic at an undisclosed price in November. Quintic produces chips for sports/fitness equipment, human-machine interaction devices, and accessories for smartphones and mobile communication devices. Mark Hamersma, senior vice president of emerging business at NXP Semiconductors, said the deal will help NXP develop safety and connectivity for medical/fitness, wearables, mobile commerce, smart homes and cars. product.
