Intersil boosts MOSFET expertise with $19m acquisition



In a $19million cash deal, Intersil has acquired MOSFET developer Great Wall Semiconductor (GWS). Founded in 2002, GWS has been awarded 22 patents related to lateral low voltage power MOSFET technology

According to Intersil, GWS’ existing and emerging FET products, combined with Intersil’s power controller portfolio, are expected to provide opportunities to accelerate innovation in the development of next generation power stages.

“This small, but experienced, team will be a great asset as we continue to expand our power management capabilities,” said Mark Downing, pictured, senior vice president of corporate strategy and infrastructure power products. “Intersil’s strategy is based on establishing market leadership through the development of highly efficient and highly integrated power management solutions. This acquisition is aligned with that effort and augments our existing team with additional intellectual property and talent.”

Sam Anderson, GWS’ CEO, added: “GWS has differentiated itself through expertise in lateral power MOSFET device and processing technology, combined with miniature chipscale packaging. We have developed important IP that enables energy savings and environmental progress that can now reach a broader set of customers and markets as we become part of Intersil.”
