@elctrnx_lyf- I think you might be mixing up the 15% reduction at Rambus with the 250 job cuts at ON Semiconductor. Rambus has about 500 employees; 15% is about 75 jobs. ON Semi has something like 20,000 employees, so it's 250 job cuts translate into a lower percentage. Is 15% significant? I would say so. And for any of the people losing their jobs at ON Semi, Rambus, or elsewhere, it's pretty significant, regardless of the percentage.

Is 250 jobs are really significant portion of Rambus? There seems to many changes to key positions with in Rambus.
