Thank you Peter. A least one voice of reason here. Not everything Silicon Valley (where I leave and work) makes or thinks of is all we need, and not all we need comes from Silicon Valley. Steve Sanghi is one of the smartest people in this industry. Just the fact that he knew how to turn around a failing NVM company and make good dough for over 20 years as its head, navigating it safely around troubled waters and keeping it financially strong, is deserving a lot of credit. The Tesla example is perhaps misused by Peter, or Maybe overly emphasized. Don't just use one quote to dismiss the whole person. Read carefully, there's some wisdom in there.

You are entitled to have an opinion, although clearly "junk" is a generally considered a derogatory term. It would be helpful to other readers to elaborate on any issues you see. People do buy a considerable numbers of Microchip ICs and one person's "cheap" is another person's value for money.

Microchip products are cheap junk - the only reason people buy their stuff is because it is cheap.

I wish the exec described a more broader and appealing use case than the one with Tesla. To that end, to make some of the vision at Microchip happen, the question on "MEMS technology and multi-die packaging is on the horizon from Microchip?" is a relevant one. For one, I have not come across initiatives or efforts from Microchip to take part in industry standards bodies and events to make its efforts known. MP Divakar

Great, an overpaid spoiled executive is making judgements based on his Tesla.
