But cable settop boxes are thing of past now. Now you will get televisions which have cable settop box inbuilt in it. Definitely analog will rule the world till VLSI is present. Afterall this world is Analog..:)

Looks like all of them are saying that fourth quarter will be a little lower. That is normal, so I don't see this as predicting a downturn in analog business.

I think analog will always be in demand. The industry and applications for analog chips is so big, and though it might overlap at times with embedded, mostly it holds its own. Within digital, there might be technologies that eat into each other, but analog and digital will remain together on every board.

It appears we are getting out from the economic crisis. People are buying television receivers and cable set top boxes. Let's hope this gets even better. And it appears analog chips are still in demand. I think they will always be among us as digital can't do it all... right? will SDR catch-up?

Impressive results at Maxim etc...analog chip vendors have traditionally managed to produce good profit margins...we will see what 2011 brings! Kris

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
