@Junko: ditto, I think this is a marriage of two technologies that either startup probably didn't target as a market to address prior to the union. I think they may not be able to pull off product next year, is too soon for a product with complexity described above. MP Divakar

I am not sure if this can be described as legal innovation, but this is certainly creative on the part of Spectra7 to figure out a way to put together two startups into one company -- and making it more attractive to investors.

MP Divakar, absolutely right. What products will Spectra7 eventually develop needs further investigation. We wil be on it.

It is an interesting story. The technology mentioned here is also good idea. Hope this superset company finally can rock the world!

This is another level of legal innovation that we should expect to see going forward. It is a giant experiment which few quarters will help us make sense of.

@selinz: the 3DIC packaging technologies are an intermediate enablers when you are integrating multiple radio technologies that are not on the same substrate. I wasn't implying that the microchip technology of the Spectra7 is going to be tied to a developmental packaging technology. On the contrary, Fresco may have technology that can integrate digital, analog and RF on the same substrate with the tens of Gbps of high speed interconnects. MP Divakar

It's still not clear to me how handcuffing your microchip technology to a developmental packaging technology makes sense. Or am I missing something?

@Junko: Interesting move... I have had a chance to work with Tony Stelliga/Quellan (before Intersil acquisition) and he certainly has the experience. I hope you can dig more into "brand new market the company is gunning for" and "its proximity to a new product launch" perhaps in a follow up this fall? One of the use cases mentioned "13 radios are getting crammed into a mobile" is being addressed by some companies leveraging the progress made in 3DIC/2.5DIC using Si interposers. This is perhaps where Fresco’s RF and mixed signal expertise can show the differentiation and value add's? MP Divakar
