Fable: The Great Man And The Great Engineer
There was once a great man, a former Navy officer, who left a great electronics company because its management chose to invest in a consumer finance operation rather than ICs.
He went to a microprocessor company where there was a great engineer who, while moonlighting at LSI Logic, invented a new kind of logic chip.
Together the great man and the great engineer founded a company which pursued a brand new semiconductor product area based on the engineer’s invention.
Last year the company had revenues of over $2 bn.
