Google scoops up one of Apple’s chief chip architects

Google has lured away chip architect Manu Gulati, who’s been spearheading Apple’s own chip developments for close to eight years, reports Variety. As the new lead SOC [systems-on-a-chip] architect, he’ll apparently be working on chips for the company’s line of Pixel smartphones. 

Gulati started working at Apple in 2009, and was instrumental to the company’s efforts to build custom chips for the iPad, the iPhone and Apple TV. Apple began using its own chips in 2010, starting with the introduction of the iPad in 2010, which was powered by the company’s A4 chip.
