Apple is going to extend their team by hiring 300 computer chip engineers after cracking a deal for hiring the candidates from one of them reliable British consultancies. It is paying Dialog Semiconductor $300m (£227m) for the possession including few of the researching -based company’s facilities and patents.
Apple has used the products of Dialog for controlling and monitoring the power consumption in its iPads and iPhones.The deal is a representation of one of the biggest takeovers of Apple in discussed terms.
Johny Srouji, the Chief of the handset maker and hardware technology, said, “ Dialog has deep expertise in chip development and we are thrilled to have this talented group of engineers who have long supported our products now working directly for Apple.”
The California based company already integrates their own computer processing unit and declared in the last year about the ending of partnership with Imagination Technology, the another UK company, for creating their own in-house graphics processing units.
In last November, the rumours appear that Apple also planned to trim the use of the components of Dialog, prompting the supplier’s shares to collide 20%.
Hence the buzz was merely an exaggeration which was probed while Apple has also declared about the pre-paid Dialog with a further $300m to secure the products for the next three years.
Ian Cutress, the senior editor of the engineering-based news site AnandTech said, “ In the industry, this kind of move is known as being more vertically integrated. It is something that is already true of Samsung and its smartphones – for example, it also makes its own displays. The benefits of Apple having full control at the component level should be lower overheads and therefore reduced costs. ”
