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.

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.

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.

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!

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
