Silicon Labs has acquired the full product portfolio and IP of California-based Touchstone Semiconductor Inc. The company is an early-stage power management technology company and provider of high-performance, low-power analog IC products. Silicon Labs purchased the assets of Touchstone for $1.5 million.

Touchstone's low-power analog products and technologies complement Silicon Labs' embedded portfolio of energy-friendly microcontrollers (MCUs), wireless products and sensors for the Internet of Things (IoT) market. The transaction adds almost 70 analog products to Silicon Labs' portfolio including op-amps, current sense amplifiers, low-power ADCs, comparators, power management ICs, timers, and voltage detectors and references. When combined with Silicon Labs' existing embedded portfolio, these high-performance analog products enable new levels of power savings in battery-operated systems, which are becoming more prevalent in the IoT market, the company stated. Silicon Labs will continue to sell the Touchstone IC products under the Silicon Labs name and plans to expand this product line going forward.
