I worked 19 years in Motorola Semi (DSP Division). The 'warring tribes' mentality at Motorola eventually reached the point where the handset and infrastructure groups would buy other company's semiconductors over Motorola Semi - often in spite. They argued against working together to build processors tuned to their needs because "it would expose their IP to their competitors". Then, they would go to other semiconductor companies and collaborate on processors and firmware, often just to spite Moto Semi. "Warring Tribes".I worked in a mobile lab at Motorola and we took apart mobiles from Bosch and others to see how they worked.
I should add, a fair amount of Motorola's competitors used Motorola's IC's and transistors in their radios. So at the time Motorola was in good shape to have competition. Then they decided to cash out the Semiconductor group to others forfeiting IP rights, revenue, R&D resources( Fab labs) and having to buy those parts on the market instead of with "blue money".
There never was an "adult in the room" with the courage to force what should have been a very favorable symbiotic relationship.
It was a great company when I started....
