Intel Acquired Silicon Hive

EETimes: Intel has acquired Silicon Hive BV. In a statement Intel said that the acquisition would bring better still-imaging and multimedia video processor technology, compilers and software tools to the Atom processor portfolio. "The Silicon Hive capabilities will aid in the delivery of more differentiated Atom-processor based SoCs as multimedia and imaging grow in importance across the mobile smart device segments," Intel said.

Intel Capital was an investor in Silicon Hive (Eindhoven, The Netherlands), a spin off from the Philips Research Laboratories, and Intel has made a deal to license embedded parallel processor architectures, compilers, and programming tools for mobile phone applications in 2008.

The amount that Intel has agreed to pay has not yet been disclosed.
