The question is "how do you maintain that stream of revenue from the Japanese customers?” The general feeling is that Japanese OEMs tend to buy chips from their domestic venders. That’s partially the reason why the Japan market is so hard for U.S. IC suppliers to penetrate. Once Sanyo becomes OnSemi, a U.S. based company, the customers may just switch the boat.

Will definitely make the onsemi product portfolio much broader. It's not just the products but gaining the market share through these acquisitions is the basic rule for onsemi!!
