re: ST-Ericsson passing processors to ST, cutting staff

From Philips to NXP to ST-NXP to STE to ST. Looks like things are back to square one, first they align complementing IPs by integrating companies and now reversing this direction by splitting them up. Only NXP seems to have gained here, guys at the private equity are smart for sure!

Sorry for hearing this news. Finally, the ST-E got this step to save itself. The employees are the most affected part, but who is responsible for this? My colleagues, hopes you are all well.

I feel sorry for those employees of ST who has to leave the organization. But I believe most of them will easily find jobs considering the most astonishing times of tablets and smart phones.

Saw this coming! Apart from those who transferred back to ST, how many will lose jobs? For the App processor acquisition, its a good move by ST. Hope they can utilise their existing channels to sell more processors than what STE did.

In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
