Battaglia said the combination of the two companies’ technologies “bridges the gap between wired and wireless applications.” He said that allows the firms “to bring our innovations to a wide variety of 5G use cases, from autonomous driving to advanced robotics and everything in between.”

Mobix Labs was founded last year and its board chairman is longtime area executive Jim Peterson.

“Today’s announcement is the first of many more that will transform Mobix Labs into a household name,” said Peterson, the lead architect of the acquisition.
