Bzzzt! Guess again! Five examples, but there are undoubtedly others:

* disk drives, now at Maxtor

* tape drives, now at Quantum

* StrongARM processor, support chips, and networking chips, now at Intel

* networking equipment, was at Cabletron -- they fissioned and I'm not
       sure which resulting company wound up with it

* most PDP-11 software, now at Mentec
