Krisi, yeah I remember PMC-Sierra, did not run into them in my past as I was typically full custom ASIC support and we did not focus outside of the chips. How is PMC-Sierra doing? I must confess to not having kept up with them as I moved on to an Engineering Project Manager position for a number of years (designing robotic control systems - what fun!).
Krisi, who did you work for (if you can say at this point)? I also worked for Toshiba, VLSI (VTI at one point, Gould AMI at one point as well) and on some IBM desgin support as well. I would be curious to know..
Rick while I am not a customer I did work on LSI custom ASICs for many years. I think that this will be a good move for LSI. It should add to the IP for the ASICs and get a little better market share for both companies..
