W^3, I think you have a valid point, I was not thinking of that when I read the article.

Looks like the prognosis for Japanese companies is not that good if this survey is considered to be scientific enough! MP Divakar

5 years is a reasonable amount of time.If some other new technology comes in by 2014 and by 2017 all the above needs to either shift to it or vanish.

Five years is a short time horizon. I wonder how different the responses would be if the time frame were changed to 10 years?

I think there is no way that a big, established semiconducter company, which leads the field in audio and power technologies, will go down. So I think I can safely say that National Semiconductor will be around for at least another decade. Oops, did I miss something? Read Ecclesiastes 9:11 - "The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the sttrong...but time and circumstance happen to them all" - or words to that effect.

Ditto. I also would like to see what this alleged list contains... :-)
