OCZ Acquires UK SSD Design Team

OCZ Technology has announced its acquisition of the UK design team of PLX Technology, a move aimed at strengthening its position in the SSD market. Also included in the deal is some unspecified intellectual property. The design team has extensive experience with System on Chip, or SoC, design and should allow OCZ to "accelerate solid state drive development, reducing its time to market for next generation SSD products, while also reducing development costs." Hopefully cost savings will enable prices in the SSD market to come down, and therefore benefit the consumer and allow more people to jump into SSD technology.
