Panasonic Completes Transfer Of Semiconductor Business To Nuvoton

News


Panasonic Corp of Osaka, Japan has completed the transfer of
its semiconductor business - which is mainly operated by Panasonic
Semiconductor Solutions Co Ltd (PSCS) - to Taiwan-based Nuvoton Technology
Corp, a semiconductor company under the umbrella of Winbond Electronics Corp
group, following the receipt of regulatory approvals.

Since the transfer was announced last November, Panasonic
and Nuvoton have been collaboratively pursuing anti-trust clearance and other
customary regulatory approvals from the competent authorities, with a target
effective date of 1 June. However, the closing date was postponed due largely
to the COVID-19-induced delay in clearance processes. The transaction has now
been completed with all the necessary approvals obtained.

Restructuring of the semiconductor business, announced along
with the transfer, has already been completed prior to the transaction.

Panasonic says that, going forward, it remains committed to
focusing on its B-to-B business. In the industrial solutions business, it has
identified ‘Automotive CASE', ‘Information Network Infrastructure' and
‘Automation/Labor-savings' as three key areas of focus.

Following completion of the transfer, PSCS is being renamed
Nuvoton Technology Corporation Japan.

The transaction includes all shares of PSCS, equipment and
inventories of Panasonic Semiconductor (Suzhou) Co Ltd, and assets, liabilities
and contracts related to predefined specific business of Panasonic Industrial
Devices Semiconductor Asia.

Nuvoton not only acquires PSCS' R&D manpower, plus
sensing, microcontroller and component technologies but also land in Nagaokakyo
City, Kyoto Prefecture and four other locations. In the long term, Nuvoton is
expected to enhance the technology capabilities, diversify the product line,
enlarge its business scope as well as revenue growth, gain additional market
shares and therefore increase its visibility in both Japan and the global
market.

Through the acquisition, Nuvoton aims to capture the
long-term growth trends in the industrial automation and automotive sectors,
create a strategic position for its industrial growth, expand global sales
channels and boost its influence in the global semiconductor industry.








AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
