thx. The article reads more like a lousy reporter's work. Freescale sales were up but lost more money. It should explain this part clearly. Maybe the report just wrote the title :)

I believe the loss is primarily due to their massive debt from being bought out and going private. The timing of that deal was not the best.

Who can explain the following to me? "For the full year 2010, Freescale posted net sales of $4.46 billion, up 27 percent from 2009. The company reported a net loss for the year of $1 billion, compared to a net income of $748 million for 2009. EBITDA for calendar year 2010 was $957 million, compared to $304 million in calendar year 2009." It reads they were doing worse than 2009. Or, are they selling for loss?

@Neo1 The Motorola tablet was not mentioned in this article. Is that what you are referring too? I believe that tablet has been reported to contain an nVideo dual core processor...

@KARTHIKSRINIVASA- thanks for your question. After looking into it, I believe you are correct. The i.MX 6 family was just announced recently.

The article talks about tablets based on "i.MX 6" Should it be "i.MX 5"?

The numbers look good but not by much and if you see their net income has gone down in fact. No doubt their revenue got boosted when the jumped on the Android bandwagon but they should come out with compelling products not just suitable options. Their tablet won the best device award at the CES this year so at least they are not as stupid as they are thought of.

I must say it is nice to hear about a company doing well! What I would love to know is: What is the magic sauce they used? Given the slow economy they are growing, a very impressive feat. Keep up the good work!

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
