Synaptics Expands Product Portfolio With Acquisitions Of Ultra Thin Keyboard Technology And Video Display Controllers For Timing And High-Speed Interface









SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Synaptics Inc. (NASDAQ: SYNA), a leading developer of human interface solutions for mobile computing, communications and entertainment devices, today announced the acquisitions of Pacinian and the Video Display Operation of Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDTI).

Synaptics' superior TouchPad technology, used in the majority of today's notebook PCs, will be coupled with Pacinian's innovative ThinTouch keyboard technology to provide an unparalleled human-interface experience, which is up to 40% thinner than a conventional keyboard.  This new technology, coupled with capacitive TouchPad technology in the same keyboard deck, will deliver a synergistic, multi-interface capability. 

The acquisition of the Video Display Operation (VDO) enhances Synaptics' technology portfolio with key technologies such as embedded DisplayPort (eDP) and Panel Self Refresh (PSR) and adds highly experienced analog and mixed signal engineering talent to the company's development team.  The acquisition underscores Synaptics' commitment to leadership in the emerging large touch screen market for notebooks, Ultrabooks and tablets with an expanded technology platform for next generation touch enabled video and display applications.

"The innovative, growth driven cultures of Synaptics, Pacinian and VDO are a natural fit; together with market and customer synergies, the integration of the teams will accelerate the development of the next generation human interface  experience," said Rick Bergman, president and CEO of Synaptics.  "These acquisitions enable us to expand our industry leading product portfolio with a broader set of solutions that will work seamlessly together to provide opportunities to shrink component footprint and costs, reduce power consumption while improving system performance and the overall user experience."
