    “It is no secret that the high-tech market in the country, and our field in particular, has reached a boiling point that makes our ability to recruit and retain talent increasingly challenging, so this connection is natural for us at this point in time,” said Shaked.
    “We have a golden opportunity here to be at the forefront of technological advancement in the field of chips like no other company."
