ex-cavium : where are you working now ?
I'm ex Cavium. They're finished. Already had a round of layoffs about three months ago. The majority who remain are ex Vulcan from Broadcom (ie the stragglers). The chief architect left a couple of months ago for SiFive. The company was a complete sh–show when I was there, not surprised it failed.
It's already happened once earlier this year when they started decimating SPBU, which was what was left of Cavium.
Given that MSFT is SPBU's only customer at this point, having a second round of layoffs mid-summer sounds like typical Silicon Valley playbook.
Maybe someone can explain what is Marvell's core business at this point.
Is this confirmed or are you speculating?
