Probably the two most pertinent quotes from the joint Intel/Marvell press release is:
"After the close of the transaction, Intel intends to continue manufacturing products currently sold by this business for handheld devices and embedded applications, and to manufacture products that are being designed into upcoming devices. This arrangement is expected to continue while Marvell arranges other manufacturing resources. Intel and Marvell do not anticipate disruptions in the supply of these products due to this planned sale."
The last sentence says it all.
A little confusing is the statement "This planned sale does not impact the ability of other Intel businesses in the networking and storage market segments to continue to use ARM*-based, Intel XScale® processors. Those Intel businesses will be able to continue licensing chip designs directly from ARM Holdings PLC and modifying the designs for their needs."
That might suggest that some ARM/xScale processors *may still be used* by Intel *after* the sale - and that further development may be possible on these.
Either the first/second or both statements could be taken to indicate that there is *no problem* regarding use of the IOP321 in Iyonix or its continued availability - contrary to what two previous drobe stories indicated.
