    1. Well, there is a lot of work ahead. Hynix definitely has a potential to compete in the first tier, but one needs to convert this potential into the really competitive products. This is not easy.

      I met him at ISSCC and indeed he was very happy with his new assignment. But to be honest with you, I did not expect anything else. Can you imagine that someone decides to take up a new job and tells you that he is not happy with his decision ...

  3. He made this move early last year. There was a big Austin-shaped hole at ON after he left.

    1. It is useful and interesting if you are part of the small image sensor technologist community. Negative useless comments... not so interesting.
