US technology company Microsoft will purchase Israeli company N-trig, specialised in fast-response touch techniques and digital pens, with a total cost of $200m. The 190 company’s employees will be moved to Microsoft to be part of a research centre developing the touch technology and digital pens, according to Israeli newspapers Yedioth and Calcalist.
Microsoft has previously cooperated with the Israeli company within an agreement using N-trig’s digital pens with Surface Pro 3 tablets. N-trig also offers its services to other companies, including Asus, HTC, Sony and Acer.
