WICED chips, used in Photon, moves from Broadcom to Cypress Semiconductor

Looks like the IoT part of Broadcom is being sold to Cypress Semi for $550M.


Big Money :money_with_wings:

Broadcom makes most of their money from chipsets that go in smartphones, so this $550M is actually not a huge part of their $8B in sales.


hello bko,

how do you think this will have an effect on the photon modules?

Brand New model called the Neutron!

Here is another press story on the move:


I hope this rather gives a boost to the intended (aleged) open-sourcing of the WICED code rather than knocking it back and hopfully the good understanding between Broadcom and Particle will carry over to Cypress.
