I worked at Silicon Image full-time (More than 8 years)
HDMI Specs for microchips [transmitter/ receiver] development
MHL Spec development for mobile devices
Smart Engineers and nice people
Management could bring a company to its prosperity, but Lattice Semiconductor acquired wireless technology only.
Advice to Management
Love employees and create them a friendly environment for a peaceful place to work, that employees could enjoy the work they do.
I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Silicon Image.
People seems nice but laid back. The initial work involved maintaining code. The biggest problem was the manager would not give a firm answer about whether to hire me, and keep blaming other factors for the delay.
