They are a _big_ chipset company, also doing reference designs
(boards) for their chipsets. The interesting part would be if they
continue on the precision timing path. If they were just after
eliminating/(get IP) a compeditor on the assisted-GPS market, that
would be less fun.

If they stay in the precision time segment, it could well be that we
get much more sources of good boards. Lots and lots of boardmakers are
using SIRF.
