Bristol chip firm gets backing from US

Help

A technology company which is based in Bristol has said it has found it now has the backing of Silicon Valley after being sold to a Californian firm for $367m.

Icera, which makes chips that allow operators more control over how handsets "talk" to networks, was bought by Nvidia in the summer.

Before the sale, the firm found it was too small to deal with global manufacturers but now had the backing of Silicon Valley.
