Classic Avago's SerDes team under APD has been combined with classic Broadcom's SerDes team under PLP. As a result, huge layoffs were announced yesterday, with the count coming in at 50%. All of the cuts came from classic Avago's side. The SerDes team in Fort Collins, CO, and San Jose, and Singapore were all decimated. Rough day.

Majority of the cuts were all damn good engineers. What a shame.
