Without announcing the deal, Qualcomm (QCOM) recently acquired Pixtronix, a developer of low-power mobile device displays that rely on MEMS technology. Sources put the deal's price tag in the $175M-$200M range. Qualcomm might try to use Pixtronix's technology to bolster its Mirasol display line, which takes a different approach to using MEMS.
