Mellanox Completes Acquisition of Kotura

Mellanox Technologies completed its previously announced acquisition of Kotura, a developer of advanced silicon photonics optical interconnect technology, for a total cash purchase price of approximately $82 million.

Kotura holds over 120 granted or pending patents in CMOS photonics and packaging design.  The company has made a number of ground breaking innovations in optical interconnects by integrating multiple high speed active and passive optical functions onto a silicon chip.

Kotura’s current location in Monterey Park, California, will serve as Mellanox’s first R&D center in the United States.
