Samsung buys UK wi-fi chip unit

Samsung buys UK wi-fi chip unit

Samsung has bought the mobile-phone technology division of CSR – the British firm formerly known as Cambridge Silicon Radio.

The $310m (£198m) deal includes patents to the firm’s bluetooth, wi-fi and GPRS location innovations.

Samsung said the move would allow its semiconductor unit to “strengthen” its line-up of mobile-device processors.

The firm’s chips are already used in its best-selling Galaxy handsets as well as Apple’s iPhones and iPads.

Samsung competes for business from other handset makers against the chip-makers Qualcomm, Texas Instruments and Intel.

Integrated tech

CSR’s chief executive said his firm offered “extremely important” technologies, but was aware of a trend in which larger firms were acting to integrate many functions into a single chip-set reducing demand for specialist parts.

“I believe under Samsung’s ownership the handset operations will be in a better place to prosper in the global handset market,” said Joep van Buerden.
