Apple paid three hundred million dollars for the share of European chip maker Dialog Semiconductor. At the same time, some of the company’s technologies and 300 engineers (16% of Dialog’s total workforce) received some of the company’s technologies.
Apple will not stop at this: in the next three years, the company will pay the same amount for full control over Dialog Semiconductor. Thus, the “apple” corporation wants to get more opportunities when developing its chips. Companies have already collaborated on processors for the early generations of the iPhone.
Also yesterday, it became aware of the purchase of Apple another company. Danish startup Spektral came under the wing of the Cupertine for $ 30 million. They hit the hands at the end of 2017, and the information has leaked only now.
