It is the first acquisition of Linear Technology for the last 30 years as this company is so conservative in bringing new stuff in its own unique culture. Hope this is a good move for this customer to seek healthy growth.

Combining sensor technology into a linear technology powerhouse might get other linear technology powerhouses to take similar steps. Anyone who ignores sensor technology in the "the Internet of everything" age does so at their peril.

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.
