ARM confirmed Filippo’s exit in a statement offered to Bloomberg. “Mike was a long-time valuable member of the ARM community,” the company said. “We appreciate all of his efforts and wish him well in his next endeavor. ” Apple, on the other hand, has yet to officially confirm the move.
Per his LinkedIn account, former ARM Lead CPU Architect Mike Filippo joined up with Apple last month, following a 10 year stint with the semiconductor company.
Apple has clearly spent the last several years dreaming of a world where it didn’t have to rely on third-parties to create its components.
