Recode, an online news site, is reporting that Google has acquired Nuteech Industrial Parts for $1.5 billion.
The deal is worth about $3 billion, according to Recode.
Nuteches patented technology is used in a wide range of products, including automotive, wearable, automotive accessories, and health care.
Google bought the Nutechi unit from NXP in 2016.
The NuteCh unit, which includes some Nutecha patents, is in charge of Nutechrome, the company’s industrial parts division.
NXP acquired Nutes technology in the early 2000s, but was forced to shut down the business after the collapse of its Nutechan division.
Nutech has a number of patents covering many types of industrial products.
NXplode was founded in 2003 by three MIT grads, and it developed the first industrial-grade silicon-based chip, which eventually made it into the NXP Nuke.
The company also developed chips that power personal computers, smartwatches, and drones.
The acquisition of NXPLODE marks Nutechal’s move from its original focus on the automotive industry, which led to the Naze and Naze 2X computers.
Naze is an affordable computer that uses the Nuevo chip architecture, which was first introduced in the N8, which Google acquired for $4.2 billion in 2015.
The other NXPlode-related patents include patents covering “automotive sensors, computer software, and related technologies,” according to the Recode report.
Naxel has patents covering digital cameras and wireless charging, as well as various sensors and control systems.
Naxel also has patents related to wireless charging and the wireless communication protocol known as Bluetooth.
