@Warren: couldn't agree with you more on the comment about DOJ (I wrote something similar on this forum when Advantest made the first bid on Verigy). I too wonder if the proposed merger gets the attention of antitrust regulators particularly in the Europe Union? If the bid goes thru, I wonder what is left for Teradyne to acquire? The semi test business has endured a brutal period over the last couple of years and the ones left standing are a few. It is probably better for the industry to remain competitive if the bid does not go thru! Dr. MP Divakar

Well it looks to me like LTXC would be a very nice addition to Verigy - in terms of a bit of synergistic diversification. On the flip side, teaming with Advantest would really provide a strengthened position in memory test; DOJ opinion on the impact competition in the area of memory test could be quite different from that of Barclays' Muse.
