Merger Would Allow 'System-On-a-Chip' Solutions

National Semiconductor Corp. and Cyrix Corp. have announced a merger that will allow the two companies to pursue plans to develop semiconductor technology for entry-level PCs, Net-PCs, and so-called information appliances. The merger needs the approval of Cyrix's stockholders and regulators. "The unique combination of technologies resulting from the merger gives us all of the building blocks to provide complete system-on-a-chip solutions for sub-$500 PCs and a broad range of low-cost information appliances," said Brian Halla, National Semiconductor CEO.
