Intersil Wireless Group On The Block?
As Techdirt discussed earlier, the fallout from making the wrong bet on which WiFi technology would be the next dominant WLAN standard (802.11 ‘a’ or ‘g’) may be leading to consequences for Intersil. There are rumors circulating that Intersil may sell off its wireless chip business shortly. Until we see more details, we’re not sure whether the motivation is financial or strategic, or even if this is true. More as this develops… Update: Okay, well, now it’s official. Intersil has sold off their wireless networking products group to GlobespanVirata.
