Terry, I would not say that TI does not have higher performance products. They have some of the industry leading Data Converters and Op-amps et al. In any case, you can not convince a designer to Design In an ADC which does not meet the noise constraints, no matter how "right" the price is. It is all about having better products according to the market need. True that ADI, Maxim and LTC have products that cater to some very specific applications, but those applications dont have a huge market, is my guess.

Agreed Goafrit. And thats quite unique considering the competition was very close a few years back. The fragmented Analog market is finally seeing a clear winner in TI which, it appears, will only increase the gap between itself and the rest of the pack. Disappoiting to see ADI lagging behind, though they did have a strong YoY.

TI is really strong leader in the seminconductor market. It is doing quite good in analog market, both with good enough product and relatively good price. I may not say they are having the highest performance product but they just price the product aggressively (or some people called it priced right) so higher performance makers (like ADI, MAXIM and LTC) just can't compete with them. TI just won't give up any market segment! Anyway, I would expect it stays at top for years in the future as there won't be another company that can support the market in such scale.

There seems to be no movement in the top 4 for these years. The top ones are just there

In the year 1977 i used the Texas Instruments TTL data book a mild yellow base coloured thick top wrapper.For many years i loved the book and used their IC's very much.Those days only access was through data books and sheets very hard to get them in India. Now just compare these facilities on line refering desigining testing makes me feel that TI has climbed up together with the whole world.Their participation so intelligent and calculated so the results are given above. All to see and follow them in their ventures to achieve the top.

TI did the right thing by investing in building new Fabs during recession. It has helped TI to reap the benefits of market uptrend to the fullest. 15% of the market share is pretty impressive.
