Google Buys Some of Apple’s Former Chip Team | News & Opinion | PCMag.com


Google has purchased Agnilux, a secretive chip house made up of engineers who architected the heart of the iPad, then left the company.

Reuters’ PEHub reported the story Tuesday night. A Google spokesman also confirmed the acquisition to PCMag.com.

“We’re pleased to welcome the Agnilux team to Google, but we don’t have any additional information to share right now,” a Google spokesman said Tuesday night via email.

What is Agnilux up to? No one really knows. Company executives include those from PA Semi, which Apple purchased in 2008. That team then created the A4 chip, which powers the iPad. According to The New York Times, the team, which includes Amarjeet Gill, Mark Hayter and Puneet Kuma, was working on some sort of a server. Dan Dobberpuhl, the chief executive of PA Semi, was reported to have led Agnilux as well, after he departed the company.
