Renaming Motorola SPS
With the news that Motorola Inc. is planning to spin-off its Semiconductor Products Sector as a separate company (see October 6 story) here at Silicon Strategies we wondered what the name would be.
We also thought some of the more creative readers might like to have a go at naming what, at its appearance, is still likely to be one of the world's major semiconductor companies and a company with a prestigious pedigree in automotive, computer and wireless electronics.
Digital DNA Inc. may be an appropriate name for SPS.
Thanks Rajesh - PDC
We here in device development have an internal technology naming convention called 'HiPerMOS', or 'HiP' for High Performance CMOS. While high performance CMOS is only a small part of SPS's portfolio I think it's a catchy name in general. Therefore, I think the name of my new company should be High Performance Semiconductor, or HiPer Semiconductor, or HiP Semiconductor.

Thanks Paul. Anyone want to bet against the Motorolan? - PDC.
Name for Moto's SPS after the spinoff? Bloatarola.
Unlikely to be selected, methinks - PDC
A giant like this needs an impressive monkier. Automotive and Wireless Electronics Semiconductor: Offspring of Motorola Excellence (AWESOME or AWE Semiconductor for short) fits the bill! Just have them send the check here to the office.

Thanks for the suggestion Kim. According to discussions I had the other night the going rate is $2 million for a name but $10 million for the name PLUS the logo - PDC
