Malta NY site too ... most of the Avera folks given notice till Jan 6 too
I heard about 100 were laid off at the burlington VT site today.
All these guys have ever done is have their design, fab and test been linked together and done in one company. Now not only are they switching from the fab that they know how to design for they also have to do it in another company which they have never done either. They have to learn all new processes and procedures. Setup all new contacts with TMSC. That's a large change and pretty much a new game for these talented asic designers that you tlak about.
Sorry, but they bought it for the talented asic designers. Of course administrator functions are always hit. HR, Sales, Marketing, Admin, Accountants, and etc... I doubt they have that many of those folks. But at the core, they are a talented team. Now they get to work on TSMC designs. It's a big upgrade for them. Smart move Marvell.
