PA Semi founder leaves Apple to work at startup

Posted on Wednesday, March 17 2010 @ 00:00:22 CET by

CNET reports Apple has lost another key executive at PA Semi, as Dan Dobberpuhl, founder and CEO of the chip design company, jumped ship to work at a chip-related startup. The Linley Group analyst Linley Gwennap speculates Dobberpuhl may have left because he enjoyed the freedom of startups and didn't like the new corporate structure brought in by Apple.
Dobberpuhl isn't alone. Other key PA Semi team members have left Apple, including one of PA Semi's leading members, Mark Hayter.

Linley Gwennap, president and principal analyst of The Linley Group, said Dobberpuhl was the leading light at PA Semi.

"He was the CEO at PA Semi and leader of the team, and one of the guys that was driving the whole thing," Gwennap said. But "those guys are start-up kind of people, and within the structure of Apple, they may [have been] chafing."
