Looks like some people have doubts on this takeover to actually take place, if you look at the current stock price.

Anybody any idea on the current state of affairs?

China, given their talent in engineering and manufacturing, would quickly build Lattice into a company that would start grinding some face. Comments like this completely underestimate the ability of China and the ineptitude of US technical manufacturing.

I think USA should block this sale and think they will. But it really is insignificant regardless. Lattice is a complete joke. Who cares if China gets the biggest losers in FPGAs. Darin Billerbeck was brought in to dispose of Lattice. Xilinx and Altera have just ground the Lattice face into the pavement for years. The brag about ice and volumes. What a laugh. Lattice is losing money. They are the poor step child of the FPGA world. I mean really, who cares about Lattice? Now if you told me China was buying Xilinx, I'd be concerned. Personally, I don't think China is capable to be innovative leaders. The culture there is a copy culture and manufacturing culture. How do you get ahead if all you can do is steal, copy, and manufacture?
