The Teridian acquisition was really a good move providing the much needed exposure to Teridian, which can leverage Maxim's distribution network to further penetrate into the smart metering segment especially in the three phase class.

This is good news for the semiconductor market in general and analog chip makers in particular. Human Machine Interface is reaching new heights with capacitive touch sensing, optical navigation, accelerometers and others with increasing need for analog front end devices. As 'Robotics Developer' has mentioned, gaming & personal entertainment industries will further help proliferate these devices.

I am wondering if they are positioning themselves for the analog embedded ARM based market? It is great to see a company doing well and given the activity in consumer products (iPod, Netbooks, cellphones, etc.) I would not be surprised at the continued moderate growth of the analog devices that are needed. With touch screens, longer battery life, cameras, gaming devices proliferating it makes a lot of sense to see continued demand for analog chips.

1) Selling RFID IP 2) Buying company which is specialized making terminal with ARM-based MCU 3) Buying company which makes H264 chip. 4) Buying company which makes optical transceivers. It sounds like Maxim is going after a product. What do you think?

Interesting to see that analog will grow faster than IC market. Any idea where this faster growth is coming from. TI was not so bullish on the fourth quarter howcome Maxim is doing better than TI ?
