This deal really could set the tone for the future battle between Intel and Samsung as leading semiconductor makers.

Intel has huge expectations from processor group atom, would like to be involved more in mobile business, however had lots of difficulties about implementation to hand sets and to find perfect vendor to cooperate. Now all is almost over, Apple indeed was the correct fellow to focus on so happened that way. As infineon is biggest provider for Apple, we can clearly see why intel eager to acquire, neither samsung's position on bid is unusual. Besides what's happening at Infineon internally is biggest question. Why CFO left the company, what was the reason, perhaps he insisted to not sell mobile division and focus on cost cuttings. Its only know by fellows at top level of Infineon momently. I look forward to leaks about this subject which for sure will shape the bid.

i just wonder, why ttpcom guys feel , as if it is the only quality protocol stack company in the world ? The engineers there are going through the same code for decades and think that others cannot ramp up on that junk code !!!. Those ttpcom engineers are too incompetant and cannot go through other codes and harass the new comers as they are insecure of their jobs !!! And it is not just Motorola, there are so many such aquisitions happening which is part of business. They just are frogs in a small well, who have not seen the ocean. And think that they are the superior engineers. and they feel all the developing worlds produce non quality goods. They should come out and see the real world before it is too late. They think drinking beer is their culture and if somebody doesnot drink beer , he is not human and cannot think !!! It is modern age...America is still waging wars and ttpcom engineers are still in colonial era !!!

Agreed that intel is likely buyer, but question arises is why only intel ?..Author clearly mentions that Samsung and Broadcom are clearly interested to buy this unit. I guess it will be tough fight between Samsung and Intel.

This would be a great way for Intel to enter the wireless market in a big way. This isn't so far off from Intel's core business in computers. Intel's expertise coupled with Infineon's intellectual property and expertise in the wireless market would almost certainly create the necessary synergies.

If this deal goes through, I hope Intel will be able to create appropriate synergies to compete effectively in the wireless and mobile markets. Intel has traditionally been focused on the computing market, but the mobile market looks very promising in the future with the advent of LTE. There is a huge market, not only in the end devices (user equipments) but also in the communications hardware that will make up LTE network infrastructure. So, I hope Intel can leverage Infineon's experience in the wireless world and compete effectively in this new market.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
