Halim, Mindspeed’s chief executive officer. “We also expect to close the Picochip acquisition in February 2012, a pivotal transaction that firmly positions us as the leader for semiconductor and software solutions in the high-growth small cell base station market.” Outlook Mindspeed expects fiscal second quarter of 2012 total net revenue to be within a range of $33.5 million to $35.5 million. The company expects fiscal second quarter of 2012 non-GAAP gross margin to be within a range of 58.0 to 60.0 percent. The company also expects non-GAAP operating expenses to be within a range of $25.5 million to $26.5 million in the fiscal second quarter of 2012, assuming a February 2012 close of the Picochip acquisition without the benefit of material operating expense synergies that are expected to be realized in the third fiscal quarter of 2012.
