Why surprised?. We have seen people buying company from Europe and Israel. In future expect more of buying from Asia. Espcially companies are hiring big in Asia. Look at all semiconductor hiring and see about 20-30 hiring in asia. so why not get the team.... Move where the action is......

A fabless American company buying a fabless Chinese company. I have not heard this before. Those who care about manufacturing should read Andy Grove's recent article in Businessweek. Grove makes the point that manufacturing is a skill that the western world voluntarily gives up. I took away from his article that manufacturing itself evolves too. The future of manufacturing is being invented in Korea and China. Maybe in the future the manufacturing giants there will do their own designs that take full advantage of their newly invented manufacturing technologies that the current fabless companies do not know or understand.
