Dialog acquires LED backlight technology from ams

Nov 24, 2017: Dialog   Semiconductor plc, a provider of highly integrated power management, AC/DC power conversion, charging, and Bluetooth low energy technology, has announced today that it has purchased ams AG’s LED backlight technology and product portfolio. As part  of  the  transaction,  Dialog  has  also  acquired  specific  ams  intellectual  property rights.

The  acquired  LED  backlight products  are already  in  volume  production with Asia Pacific TV manufacturers.  The transaction is now closed, with the commercial terms of the deal undisclosed. “Dialog  continues  to  execute  on  its strategy  of  strengthening  its  technology leadership in advanced mixed-signal technologies with this acquisition from ams, our second  to close  in  the  last  weeks,”  said Jalal  Bagherli,  CEO  at  Dialog.

“We  are excited about the prospects of creating new products that will provide our customers with  next  generation, higher  quality  display  solutions  for  the  consumer  and automotive markets.” Large  panel  displays  are  transitioning  from  the  traditional  edge-lit  configuration  to multi-segment  direct  backlighting  to  provide  significant  performance  improvements, including  higher  dynamic  range  and  longer  lifetime.  Dialog’s  patented  AnyMode™ technology  enhances  the  display  contrast  ratio,  enables  faster  image  fadeout  and reduces motion blur,which for an automotive infotainment display will enable a safer driving experience. The combination of Dialog’s AnyMode LED technology and ams’LED driver assets will establish a worldwide leader in display backlight technologies and will allow Dialog to better serve customers in high value display applications.
