Embedded semiconductor manufacturer Freescale Semiconductor has agreed to acquire California-based Intoto for an undisclosed sum.
Intoto provides software platform products for networking and communications equipment manufacturers. It has 165 employees and has design and development centers in India.
The company is planning to use Intoto’s technology to develop high-performance applications to streamline development and software support for its QorIQ multicore communications platforms.
The deal follows Freescale’s April acquisition of SigmaTel for approximately $110m to expand its i.MX multimedia applications processors.
Lynelle McKay, senior vice president and general manager of Freescale’s networking and multimedia division, said: Successful multicore development requires a deep understanding of how the architecture, applications, and operating systems integrate to achieve system solution and performance goals. Intoto’s leading-edge development team strengthens our QorIQ solution and helps us offer our customers software applications expertise that assists their migration to embedded multicore.
The transaction is expected to close within 30 days.
