Detals start to emerge on Apple’s acquisition of P.A. Semi
When word came out that Apple had acquired chip designer P.A. Semi it wasn’t immediately clear what their motivation was.
Details are starting to come out about the deal and it looks like the reason behind the acquisition was that Apple wants P.A. Semi to design a chip for them, but the company was basically out of money having “more or less burnt through its venture capital funds.”
What exactly Apple wants P.A. Semi to design a chip for is still a mystery.
I just tried to check out P.A. Semi’s website at www.pasemicom and apparently it’s gone over it’s bandwidth allocation and it’s provider has taken it offline. Oops.
