Just curious to know the objective that the TI management had in their mind for this acquisition. Is it because TI wanted to increase their market share and portfolio in the analog domain (I noticed, analog have been in TI's focus in the seminars since last couple of years)? Does TI plan to become analog giant?

Maybe to reduce competitors.

TI wants to be a one-stop-shop for Analog and integrated electronic devices. Economies of scope and scale could give it a major comparative advantage.

Alongwith financial contribution, TI should also consider innovation from NSC. Will it suffer or will it propsper? I am more interested in innovation from NSC.

Acquisition can be said a good merger, as now designer will get a better interfacing of Code Composer Studio and LabView.

Why labview? I am afraid you are confused between National Semiconductor and National Instrument. These two are different companies.

Agreed TingLu. And anyway, Code Composer Studio is an IDE for the embedded devices, unlike LabView.

I would say, is it not already an analog giant? With National on board, TI is approaching nearly double the market share as the next in line. Fragmented, as the analog market is, it still says a lot about the analog powerhouse TI has become.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
