Both IQE and QinetiQ will provide staff and equipment, but the joint venture's services will be marketed through IQE. Initially, the company will be based at QinetiQ's facility in Malvern.

The move came just a few weeks after Qualcomm escaped a hostile takeover bid from Broadcom, which would have made similar cuts. Surprisingly, management also ousted its chairman and former chief executive, Paul Jacobs, Irwin’s son.

Given all the drama, Irwin had every reason to spew invective in an interview at the Imec Tech Forum, where he received a lifetime achievement award. But deep into retirement, Jacobs is as upbeat and energetic as ever.

You have to pull back and let people run things,” he told me. But that said, he was not without opinions.

I was very unhappy that [Centriq] was discontinued. I would hope that it gets picked up by others. Maybe a company involving Paul and/or Sanjay [Jha, a former Qualcomm vice president recently ousted as CEO of GlobalFoundries] or others that have left will join in that kind of effort,” said Jacobs, responding to online calls for them to rescue the group.

I can’t predict how this will work out. It’s looking more favorable for the NXP deal now, but that could change tomorrow,” said Jacobs, recounting stories of a nearly 10-year battle to get China to license Qualcomm’s CDMA technology in the 1990s.

Jacobs expressed no anguish that the deal would change the character of the company he founded.
