Looking at histor for other acquisitions, the acquisition or merger will kill most of Atmel's products, as cultures collide.
Look at the Motorola spin-out that killed the 68000 family.
The IBM actions that effectively abolished the PowerPC.
And many lesser ones in the microcomputer world.
I hope not, as Atmel's architecture and pretty bug-free chips are a great thing.
