I think this is a great move by Apple. Since all Apple products strongly rely on the FLASH as the storage, acquiring Anobit to start an in-house development for the FLASH controller and at the same time adding 200 more brilliant engineers to its chip design work force is great. For Anobit...it should be great to be part of Apple!

Anobit technologies is lucky because now more funding to the Anobit team is possible by Apple to do advanced research and bring out more innovative devices.

Most of the old iPhones are locked to AT&T and there is no unlock method for the current modem. When sold it looks like they re-flash the baseband and sell them as unlocked phones in India and China.

Smart move. They have the former PA-Semi engineers doing first the A4, then the A5 and most likely working on the A6, and now they have another hardware team with unique flash controller IP to extend the useful life of NAND flash. But this also raises an interesting question. A big part of Apple's sales come from its loyal fans who buy every new generation of Apple product, or perhaps every other new generation. What happens to all the older gen devices that still work perfectly -- still have useful flash memory life, useful battery life, etc.?

Did they stopped PA-Semi?

The NAND flash itself is. The controller that uses it isn't!

Probably Apple will stop Anobit from selling to others as a strategic move.

Anobit got their payday. I'm sure that they are happy.

Nice one Apple but I never knew this NAND memory has good value for $390m. Thought this is a commodity business, but Apple is wiser.
