Thread regarding Freescale Semiconductor Ltd. layoffs

Some major chips are in the pipeline, too!

There are some major chips that are either coming back with first silicon or have just had tape out. Others are near DRC. Digital networking never made any sense in NXP's business model. I wonder if they ever tried shopping them around.

Gee, they do have a ton of IP. I wonder what will happen with that.

One of the "commitments" that was made was that there would have to be some layoffs but it would mostly affect divisions that had redundant operations, like marketing and accounting.

They shut down Adeilaide five or six years ago and Israel in May. That's a lot of designers. A LOT!

Semiconductor wages in Austin are about to go down. And last week everybody was talking about how technology hiring was keeping the unemployment rate down.

Rumor is DN was shopped to Qualcomm but they didn't bite, so now this. There is no longer any chip design in Austin
