24 May 2012 Intersil to cut workforce by 11% Analogue chip vendor Intersil is to cut its workforce by about 11% as part of its plan to cut costs and revamp its product portfolio. In a regulatory filing on Wednesday, the company said its restructuring plan involved cutting operation costs by about $40million per year.

The company now plans to focus on its top 10 growth drivers and revise its target operational model.
