Intel išče prodajo priključenega domačega oddelka



Intel is reportedly looking to sell its connected home devices division, a company unit used for designing semiconductors that enable WiFi connection in all kinds of devices and SoCs made for managing network devices like WiFi routers. Following a previous deal, where Intel sold its modem division to Apple for 1 billion USD, Intel is now looking to 'get rid of' another unit that is not doing any data-centric design workload.

Oddelek Connected Home je imel v lanski letni prodaji približno 450 milijonov USD, vendar se zdi, da je konkurenca dobra s konkurenčnimi ponudbama Broadcom Inc. in Qualcomm Inc. Če bo enota potencialno prodana drugemu podjetju, bi Intel lahko ponovno preusmeril sredstva za raziskave in razvoj. drugim skupinam znotraj podjetja. Poleg tega je treba omeniti, da je bilo po ocenah najeto finančno svetovanje, ki bo ocenilo morebitne ponudbe, ki jih prejme Intel.
