C-Cube Microsystems today announced the spin-off of its semiconductor division into an independent company. The spin-off is connected with C-Cube's merger of DiviCom, its former subsidiary specializing in digital video, with networking firm Harmonic. The spin-off marks a temporary change in C-Cube's stock symbol. The company's stock will trade on the Nasdaq market under the symbol CUBED for approximately 20 trading days. It will then return to its original CUBE symbol.
