Santa Clara, CA - May 25, 2011 - Silicon Valley semiconductor developer Siport has been acquired by Intel. In a statement about the transaction, Intel wrote the following:

"Digital radio is poised to become an important ingredient for handsets and other mobile devices as broadcast radio transitions from analog to digital. Intel's acquisition of Siport enhances our abilities to continue as the leading provider of low power, single-chip CMOS solutions enabling wide spread adoption of broadcast digital radio."

Siport's major product is the CMOS, single-chip SP1010 terrestrial digital broadcast receiver, which receives and decodes FM + HD, AM + HD (with separate AM tuner), T-DMB (the digital transmission standard in South Korea) and Eureka-147 (DAB).
