    Intel acquires NetSpeed - SoC design tools and Interconnect Fabric IP

    Today Intel announced that they have acquired NetSpeed, NetSpeed has become part of Intel's Silicon Engineering Group (SEG) which Jim Keller leads (Jim Keller with Interconnects and SoC design, coincidence? I think not) Intel expects to honor any customer contracts NetSpeed currently has but NetSpeed will become an internal asset going forward.

    I believe Jim Keller chose NetSpeed at Tesla so this makes sense. I will look more into it later.

    It was a technology acquisition for sure. NetSpeed was doing very well in automotive so that is where Intel is headed. Netspeed was also in the datacenter and AI. This is the same space as ArterisIP so they just lost a competitor. The semiconductor IP consolidation continues....... Who is next?
