We are deeply saddened by the loss of our friend and Chairman Mike Hackworth. In creating Cirrus Logic he led the way for the fabless semiconductor industry, and with the company's success proved that “real men really don't need fabs.” Through his work and philanthropy he had a tremendous positive impact on thousands of people. We will miss him greatly. Our thoughts go out to his family in this sad time.
