Analog Devices to acquire secure-systems supplier

August 19, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Analog Devices has announced the acquisition of the Cyber Security Solutions (CSS) business of Sypris Electronics LLC. This acquisition represents, ADI says, a “significant leap forward” in its ability to deliver secure high-performance analogue solutions demanded by current and future market needs; it will be operated as ADI’s Secure Technology Group (STG).

The CSS business of Sypris Electronics, LLC, in secure system and software products and technology, has a 50-year-plus history. Sypris has provided high-assurance information security services to the customers including military and government organizations needing to protect against sophisticated nation-state level threats and attacks. ADI says the move enhances its aerospace and defence capabilities in the area of secure radio communications, bolsters its portfolio of system hardware and software-based cryptographic technologies, and adds a cybersecurity software and services business that supports its ability to offer more comprehensive high-performance analogue solutions across multiple market segments such as Internet of Things (IoT), industrial, and automotive.


The company adds; “With this acquisition, we have accelerated our ability to offer our customers trust ‘from the sensor to the cloud’ through next-generation cyber-physical security solutions. The competencies and offerings of the CSS business are a great complement to our Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, as security increasingly becomes paramount to the success of IoT implementations.”
