…agreeing to buy the sole supplier of display driver chips for the iPhone.
More on the significance of the acquisition:
With the acquisition, Synaptics is also aiming to integrate its touch technology with Renesas SP’s display drivers, which would both improve performance and lower costs. “There is no one else that can do touch display driver integration right now. There is no other competitor,” Feltl analyst Jeffrey Schreiner said.
Synaptics, whose chips are used in Samsung devices such as Galaxy S5 smartphones and Galaxy Note 3 phablets, is also expecting growth from smartphone fingerprint sensors, in which it claims 90 percent of the market after acquiring a company specializing in the technology last year.
We have a really big winner here, it seems.
