Datel Data Acquisition Becomes Private Company
On April 1, Datel Data Acquisition announced that it would split from parent company Murata Power Solutions and establish itself as a private, employee-owned company called Datel Incorporated.
Murata Power Solutions is just one of a series of owners under which Datel Data Acquisition has worked since 1974. Intersil, G.E., and C&D Technologies all laid claim to the company over the years, with Murata Power Solutions acquiring Datel from C&D Technologies. However, according to the press release, Datel management believes the company would be better positioned to serve its customers in the data acquisition and hybrid multi-chip markets as a private entity, which can use both existing and new sales channels.

Historically, Datel has served the military, medical, high-reliability, industrial, and scientific industries.
All of the staff, including the management team and the engineering and technical staff, marketing, sales, and production personnel will transition into Datel Inc. The company headquarters and production facilities will remain in the same location in which they had been previously established, in Mansfield, Mass.
Datel offers standard products such as sampling analog-to-digital converters, digital-to-analog converters, data acquisition systems, and sample-holds, as well as custom-designed modified products created by the engineering team in-house.
Murata Power Solutions is a supplier of AC/DC converters, AC/DC power supplies, digital panel meters, and similar. The Massachusetts-based company had six engineering design centers and eight manufacturing centers around the world, according to information released before the privatization of Datel.
