I agree. I think ST has usually looked at the competitors before deciding to start any innovative program, and this is one of the reasons why it is often late to market.

We all live in a capitalistic society. It doesn't matter whether ST-E serves Europe or NOT. What matters is how to save a company and make it profitable. Having said that, ST-E seems over-staffed and may need to become lean and mean org.

It's easy to be an arm-chair analyst. But really, if there is one thing you want from ST-E today, what is it? LTE modem? (But its IPs share the same roots as that of Nokia. Now that Renesas bought Nokia's modem business, ironically, Renesas is the owner of that IPs) Many of us discussed breaking up the ST-E business, but one could also argue that the strength of ST-E today lies in the fact that it has ALL the elements necessary to make the next smartphone chips.

The new ST-Ericsson LTE/HSPA/GSM modem (in e.g. Thor M7400 and NovaThor L8540) is based on ex-EMP (Ericsson Mobile Platforms) architecture and accelerator IP, and ex-NXP DSP. There is no connection to the Renesas (ex-Nokia) modem.

STE should identify the key areas before it is completely dies in this competition.

Unfortunately ( or fortunately ) W. European policymakers do not think the same way as Wall St. / City of London or the masses who have swallowed their Kool-aid of so - called "free - market". Germany just put out a couple of 100 billons to bail out Greece. Whats a few more billions if there are no alternative to STE for addressing Europe's hardware needs ? Sale of Volvo to China was quite enuff ! The British, who lost industrial competitivenes to France & Germany almost since the advent of the steam locomotive ( invented actually by the Frenchman Cugnot years before Trevithick ), have long abandoned hard work and innovation needed to promote social responsibility and instead have depended on colonial exploitation and unabashed manipulation of the english speaking masses of America to do their bidding. It is British interference in US media & policies since Thatcher that have greased the skids for our suicidal policies in the name of "free trade".

This is the normal end of a company which has been managed by poor people (Philips Semi., ex. VLSI France,ex. SiLabs US, shark investor KKR, arrogant ST France, Ericsson) more interested to take over the power from the previous direction than to develop competitive and innovative solutions. This is as well very representative of the history of electronic in Europe. Let's see what will be the next steps of auto-destruction !! We shall certainly have very good suprises.
