Under the terms of the agreement, over 300 CSR employees will join Samsung, including a number of senior managers and engineers from Europe, U.S.A. and India, who will focus on the development of advanced connectivity, and location products and technologies.

CSR'a Klaus Buehring, senior vice president of Product Development, will join Samsung's System LSI Business to lead the connectivity product development activities.

The agreement also sees Samsung receive perpetual rights to CSR's intellectual property and gain full access to CSR's mobile connectivity and location technology.
