Ralink Technology Corporation and TrendChip Technologies Corporation, both based in Taiwan, are to merge, creating a leading company in the global home networking and broadband access semiconductor markets.

The merged company will be called Ralink Technology Corporation.

Wireless chipset specialist Ralink, which has a development centre in California, as well as headquarters in Taiwan, provides 802.11n solutions to customers in the Americas, Europe, and Asia.

Its products are found in all major Wi-Fi market segments including personal computers, broadband gateways, digital televisions, Blu-Ray players, web cameras, and IPTV set-top-boxes.

Semiconductor supplier TrendChip, which is also headquartered in Taiwan, has development centres in China.

Chris Kao, Chairman of Ralink Technology, said: “By combining Ralink and TrendChip into a single company, Ralink Technology Corporation will be positioned to drive the growth of high-performance yet cost-effective ‘triple play’ voice, video, and data services throughout the Networked Digital Home.”

Shinjou Fang, Chairman of TrendChip Technologies will be CEO of Ralink Technology and Chris Kao will continue to serve as Chairman.

Earlier this month Ralink announced that its 802.11n Plus Bluetooth Combo has completed Bluetooth 3.0 + HS qualification by the Bluetooth Qualification Board.
