What do IBM layoffs mean for New York's chip initiative?
(Is this the end of IBM fab club....) N.Y.just dumped a ton of money attract semi business - you might recall the TV adds- showing an operator holding a wafer in a clean room)
And there won't be A Glofo IPO either - at least my guess.
BTW IBM Burlington once was the largest semiconductor facility in the world - two sections DRAM and logic - logic was for power PC -
of course as a supplier I spent lots of time at IBM and Moto....
and I even spent more time at Intel...
I am curious about Intel 10nm roadmap - onece again something radically new?
The Bloomberg news service, citing Alliance@IBM, reported Thursday that the layoffs that had been reported so far included at least 165 semiconductor R&D jobs. But that total is all but certain to climb.
