I just read that Qualcomm might be buying NXP for over $30 billion.

M&A keeps rolling in the semiconductor industry. It’s getting to the point where it is hard to keep track and remember who is buying who and for what? I am sure it is also getting difficult for the employees of these semiconductor companies. I talk to engineers all day long and while it can be exciting to find out your company is being bought or is doing the buying, it can also be quite nerve racking. These engineers are never quite sure if their jobs are secure.

I will be watching and if anyone out of Qualcomm is interested in speaking to a recruiter with lots of positions in the semiconductor industry, please let me know.
