Techwell is a smart move by Dave Bell. Gaining in the industrial segment is a good idea for stable future. Also, considering the high fragmentation in Analog, some amount of consolidation will actually help drive quality products into the market. With Kenet, Rock and Zilker already in the bag, what else could be on Intersil's mind.. and what about the digital onslaught?

I see the $1 billion as very possible. They actually grew R&D in 2009 while the rest of the industry was retrenching; and 40% of R&D spend goes into areas where they have little to no revenue today, thus assuring revenue streams into the future. Though there is competition, Analog is still a highly specialized art, so there is a high barrier to entry. The challenge for Intersil is to ensure that Sales is not biased too heavily into one geographic region or end-market. Moreover, encroachment of Digital into traditional Analog circuitry may cut into ASPs and Revenue.
