I think this is just to be able to expand capacity for growing demand. TI still has a huge base in the US and has invested in Texas too, with the RFAB. I think it will be time before we see any CI.

TI fab in China! It may be good for TI to lower down its cost and therefore be more competitive in local low end analog market. Just wonder if TI will use this fab to build the HPA.

This is in accordance with TI's philosophy i.e to keep the Analog fabs. TI sold of its ASIC unit couple of years back and decided to concentrate on Analog portion. It might be recalled they bought fab in richardson this year. So far so good for TI. Best of luck.
