TE Connectivity buys Silicon Microstructures

Author: EIS Release Date: Sep 25, 2019

TE Connectivity is buying Silicon Microstructures from Elmos Semiconductor.

The acquisition of Silicon Microstructures will expand TE’s capabilities in pressure sensing technology, particularly in medical, transportation, and industrial applications.

The transaction brings together SMI’s MEMS sensor technology design and manufacturing capabilities, with TE’s operational scale, customer base and existing sensors technologies into a more comprehensive global sensing solutions offering for customers.

“Silicon Microstructures’ MEMS pressure sensing design and manufacturing capability is utilized in various applications requiring miniature design and high-performance packaging,’ says TE’s John Mitchell,  “the MEMS low pressure sensing capability compliments TE’s pressure offering while strategically aligning to its market and application focus.”
