Agnilux: A chip start-up acquired by Google from ex-Apple designers

Thomson Reuters’ PEHub reported that ““Agnilux,” a stealth chip start-up in San Jose, Calif., is acquired by Google. A company spokesman confirmed the parties had reached a deal but provided no further details on one of Google’s more curious acquisitions in recent memory. Little is known about Agnilux other than the fact that it was founded by former employees of P.A. Semi and Apple employees, as well as Scott Redman, a former software architect at TiVo, the chip start-up Apple bought in 2008. That raises more than a few questions about what Google might have in mind for the start-up. Google has commissioned its own server hardware for years, and the Times believes that Agnilux is working on a server chip. But with a former TiVo employee on board, it’s possible Google has the Google TV effort in mind for any custom chips produced by the start-up. Either way, rank this one among one of the more interesting acquisitions Google has made in the seven months since CEO Eric Schmidt said the company was ready to open its wallet again,” posted Tom.
