Today, Toshiba has announced that it will officially be leaving the systems LSI (large scale integration) business. With this business unit, Toshiba used to provide design proposals and specifications for systems used for things like image processing, sensors, etc. However, it turns out that the unit is not profitable and Toshiba will be dissolving it. With this move, about 770 employees of the unit will be moved to another work place or be provided with an early retirement plan. Despite ending the business in making SoCs, Toshiba is still going to support existing customers. What is going to be next for Toshiba is the area of analog ICs and microcontrollers for motors, which is supposedly more profitable than the past business unit. All of the resources used in the LSI group will be redirected to the new plan.
