Motorola has confirmed it is to spin off its Semiconductor Components Group (SCG), part of the company's Semiconductor Products Sector (SPS) business group. The plan, first mooted in an internal memo leaked to US magazine Electronics Buyers' News, will see the SCG, which is based in Geneva and handles Motorola's discrete logic and integrated circuit products, separated from the SPS and renamed. Ultimately, Motorola hopes to sell the new, standalone division. The move is clearly part of Motorola's ongoing strategy of focusing on its core semiconductor products: its microprocessor line, including the PowerPC, micro-controllers and DSPs. These are the SPS' key products, and are sold through its various business units to specific vertical markets. The timetable for the spin-off process is not known. ®
