Okey we have the inherited products of intel and GE, with elder motion follower&remote connectivity devices i am not sure $7.7B market would be covered. At the era of mobile connected devices and MEMS i am missing such innovative products range, '12 is not so far, '11 there should be covered also. since august no such movement we have seen. i am really looking forward what they d offer to market in close future.
