Microchip To Buy Silicon Storage for $284 Million – WSJ.com: “Microchip To Buy Silicon Storage for $284 Million”
This announcement, on the heels of the December 15 “On Semi to Buy California Micro” for $108 Million announcement, shows that Silicon Valley M&A in the semiconductor sector, and related industries, is roaring back to life. This is not a surprise to me, as I have been tracking the global semiconductor industry for some time now. After an almost nuclear devastation, this industry has been experiencing a month to month return to growth for perhaps close to a year now.
Furthermore, a semiconductor index of publicly traded companies’ performance has led the S&P 500 by a significant margin for several months.
