If you are a customer of Avago or LSI I'd love to hear your thoughts on the possible impacts for you

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..

I agree, good move...I never worked for either but was competing against LSI

Synergetic merger

This is clearly a synergetic merger with both companies benefitting as a result. There will be job losses in support divisions but Engineering should be fine.

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..

I don't see how either company could lose out in a move like this...maybe a bit better for LSI, but Avugo is going to fare well with all the additional IP as well.

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!).

I left 10 years ago so I am not really up to date but they are doing well, especially in storage

Krisi, well I left ASIC support after 18+ years and spent 5+ as an engineering project manager, now I am back into customer support..  interesting career paths all of them!
