OCZ Technology, a brand name that everyone here at MyCE have become familiar with, have today announced they have signed a definitive agreement to acquire Indilinx Co.
Indilinx made a big name for themselves back in 2008 with their now famous Barefoot SSD controller, as found in the original OCZ Vertex SSD.
Indilinx have been rather quiet as of late, with their JetStream SATA 6Gbps SSD controller being well behind its expected release date.
OCZ will gain substantial intellectual property from Indilinx including approximately 20 patents and patent applications related exclusively to the business as part of the transaction. OCZ have also stated that Indilinx will continue to produce and supply its line of SSD controllers to manufacturers and OEMs on a global scale.
This acquisition puts OCZ in a very strong position.
Can we expect a new range of SSDs from OCZ featuring a new Indilinx controller?
