Not sure, but I think Conexant got lots of cash when spinning off Skyworks. That's short-sighted (when Skyworks was not worth much).

Skyworks is doing pretty well. How much stake conexant have in skyworks? Couldnt they just sell the interests in the spinoffs to payoff the debt?

As an ex-Conexant in the early 2000,I agree with most of the analysis. Broadcom and Conexant are neighbors in Newport and many Broadcom employees are from Conexant. The only major difference is the vision of the management team. As far as I can remember, Conexant's CEO Dwight Decker was a nice guy, and we didn't have a strong CTO (don't even remember the name, or did we have one?). I was told Broadcom's CTO Henry Samueli was a visionary, so that might be the difference (in addition to the M&A strategy).

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
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.
