Tyan to be purchased by Mitac International

While you probably haven't heard of Mitac, you've definitely heard of Tyan Computer. They are infamous for not only making robust server equipment, but high-end desktop equipment as well, and were one of the first companies to make dual-processor boards for home use. Now, Mitac International will be acquiring Tyan, with a stock trade. Currently, Mitac already holds a 35% share in Tyan, so for them it is not much of a surprise. The companies are not in direct competition, with Mitac doing OEM work and Tyan doing reselling.

The ultimate goal is to increase Tyan's product lines and production volume, enabling them to better compete with other high-end vendors like Intel and SuperMicro.

They make a lot of stuff, including personal supercomputers, IPMI management cards and such. This move is mainly to merge the IP and technology into Mitac's already large infrastructure. Mitac can not only compete into the channel distribution market, but now they have more potential to get more projects with global Tier-1 customers.btw: you misspelled "Mitac"
