The last incisive electronics website analysis I did was of the intriguing minicircuits.com site. (Unfortunately I was not wise enough to take a screenshot of the bizarre page, luckily archive.org has it for you to check out!)

Today I’m trying to figure out whats the story behind Potato Semiconductor.
At first I was thinking, ‘well, yknow it could mean something else in another language.’ But their logo is pretty clearly a Potato.

They reason:

Why called Potatosemi as Brand?
We are the IC design house making chips. Potato chips are the most popular chips in the world. They are high volume, low price & taste good. All of the people like to eat them. All of the people are happy with them. This is exactly our goals. We will like to make our chips as popular as potato chips, as high volume as potato chips, as low price as potato chips. All of the computers & electronics devices like our chips’ taste. All of the people like to use them because they are easy to use & all of the people are happy with potato chips.

Need I mention they’re in San Jose?

Their blog which is kinda awesome…
