You are absolutely right. But there is nothing really new in this. Many IC suppliers faced the same issues in the past few years when working with big names in the mobile business. One day, millions of chips sold, the next day zero. Cheers

This illustrates the perils of being too dependent on one customer. It might keep the marketing expenses down,  but unless your IP's airtight and really hard to replicate, you're at their mercy. (Especially if you've taken on debt to ramp up supply for them.)
