There's a statement from Microchip up on their site:

They're promising not to cut the product lines. I can't believe they won't slim them down a bit, but perhaps they think that they can improve efficiency by combining other aspects of the businesses - less fabs, less people doing identical jobs, etc. If I worked for Atmel I'd be worried, that's for sure.

We wait and see, I guess.

Tom
