MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- NetLogic Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ:NETL - News), the leader in the design and development of knowledge-based processors, today announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Aeluros, Inc., a privately-held, fabless provider of industry-leading 10-Gigabit Interface technologies and semiconductor products. Low-power, multi-gigabit interface technology is an increasingly important component in driving next-generation knowledge-based processors, as well as in enabling 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GE) physical layer (PHY) connectivity for enterprise and datacenter networks.

Since its founding in 2001, the Aeluros team has delivered significant innovation to the performance, functionality and low-power operation of 10GE PHY technology. This leadership in 10GE PHY technology has led to Aeluros’ products being designed into numerous next-generation systems at leading networking OEMs and optical module manufacturers.

Through the acquisition, NetLogic Microsystems also expects to expand its worldwide leadership in knowledge-based processors by delivering next-generation processors that incorporate the industry’s best-in-class, ultra low power interface technology from Aeluros. Leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are driving the requirements for higher speed interfaces at lower power and lower cost to support bandwidth-hungry video applications in the enterprise and datacenter. NetLogic Microsystems expects the acquisition of Aeluros to raise the bar of innovation for the industry and to accelerate its next-generation knowledge-based processor roadmap.

“We are very excited to have such a very strong and proven team join NetLogic Microsystems. Aeluros will provide us with a strong leadership position in interface technology for our next-generation knowledge-based processors, and will complement our team and product portfolio with their advanced portfolio of 10GE products,” said Ron Jankov, president and CEO of NetLogic Microsystems. “We believe this synergistic combination will allow us to continue to deliver highly compelling products to our customers and partners.”
