@Sheetal its very simple, ex Thomson new Technicolor didnt have intention to buy whole unit, inspite wanted to grant their can tuners and position as a can-tuner source in far east. Also they didnt want to deal further with angry share holders at time due to sharp cuttings. Now its over company downsized well, and has IPs at market. thats fact they will cut further in order to cover depts sadly.

I'm amazed that tin-can tuners can still compete with silicon tuners, considering the labor required to assemble and adjust a can tuner. How long can that business remain viable?

NXP is removing the old but still working for the new like NFC thechnology chips and also it's strong on USB chips for audio and multimedia. It appears the trend is to downsize and be lean, concentrate on the strengths and cut away the weak limbs.

NXP is truly downsizing. They are selling and selling. I used to think this company is very healthy. This industry is becoming unpredictable if great firms like NXP could be caught this bad.

It is also true that the traditional CAN tuners will be becoming of less interest after Silicon Tuners, one can refer this article published on eetimes, http://www.eetimes.com/design/microwave-rf-design/4005736/Silicon-TV-tuners-kick-the-CAN
