Glad to see this

I'm really glad to see this merger. My impression from both of these companies is that they aren't afraid to get out ahead and try new technologies. I learned so much from TriQuint about GaN, and so much from RFMD about picocells. Glad to see both sides of the ecosystem coming together. Looking forward to seeing what comes of this.

I'd be curious to hear from RFMD and TriQuint folks on how they see the corporate cultures coming together. They seem different to me.

This strikes me as similar to the Agago/LSI combination in some respects. Two medium-sized, relatively complementary companies combine to broaden reach and cut costs.

I'm holding my breath for the layoff notices TK. Like Janine, I'd love to hear some views from folks working there.

I'm surprised we haven't heard more already from those working at both of these companies. Clearly, this is a significant occurence in the industry. It opens up all kinds of possibilities and brings together two very complementary companies.
