“We are delighted to have the SiliconSystems team join WD,” John Coyne, president and CEO of WD, said as part of the announcement. “The combination will be modestly accretive to revenue and margins as a result of SiliconSystems’ existing position as a trusted supplier to the well-established $400 million market for embedded solid-state drives."
