Digital Signal Processing Solutions:
TI to Acquire TDK's Subsidiary Silicon Systems Inc. (SSi)
TOKYO (June 5, 1996) TDK Corporation of Japan, through its
U.S. subsidiary TDK U.S.A. Corporation ("TDK"), and
Texas Instruments Incorporated (NYSE:TXN) today announced
the signing of a Stock Purchase Agreement by which TI would
acquire TDK's U.S. semiconductor subsidiary, Silicon
Systems Inc. (SSi). The acquisition strengthens TI's
position in DSP solutions and the mixed-signal/analog
marketplace, and firmly establishes TI as a leading
supplier of semiconductor products to the hard-disk drive
and removable data storage markets.

Solid State Music
SSM (solid state music) used to make music-synthesizer IC's like VCO, VCF and VCA. Later, when synthesizers became digital they concentrated on VCA for audio (mixing consoles, compressors) app they "merged" into PMI that revived with a large range of exellent audio IC's. They finally merged into Analog Devices. AD still has got some IC's "SSM".

Solid State Scientific
Joe da Silva told me:
Has been acquired by Sprague during the mid-80's.
I remember Sprague offering the SCL4000 series (for military only, I think) and using the SSS "cube" logo with the caption "Sprague Solid State"... Did Sprague only acquire a part of SSS or did they later "on-sell" SSS to ST?
