Cavium Buys QLogic (Storage, Networking Merger)

Another semiconductor merger

"Cavium Inc. will take on Broadcom, Intel and Mellanox in storage and networking with its billion-dollar acquisition of Qlogic Corp. The deal teams one of the semiconductor’s fastest growing companies with one just starting to emerge from a decline.

The acquisition adds Qlogic’s Fibre Channel and Ethernet controllers and boards to Cavium’s line up of communications, security and general-purpose processors, positioning Cavium as more of a full-line supplier to data centers. "
