The talks with Qualcomm and Broadcom were about about "routine customer issues." And the talks with Intel? Intel's never been able to move beyond digital, and they may be getting tired of letting others make PMICs for Atom, etc.

The theory of "pump&dancing" makes sense. The fitting of NXP on Intel, Broadcom or Qualcomm is very poor. If we talk about TI, Frescale, Microchip, Infineon or Atmel the history would be another.

It would be too much of a financial stretch IMHO.

Regarding further acquisition, I wonder TI will start to search for RF target. TI doesn't have RF product so far! So, I wonder if they will have interest to acquire an RF company so that it can offer full line analog products.

Intel need the other side of product line ie apart from the general purpuse cpus,server cpus,integrated gfx etc... this could be a good deal for Intel too, moreover Intel recently bought the wireless division of infenion there by making a its presence in wireless basebad products, Intel may have plan a to make a presence in audio/video codecs, DSP's , automotive etcs. A channel to expand the atom in these domains

It may be TI again interested in NXP.

TI acquiring National Semiconductor being one of the biggest consolidations in this field in the recent past it is quite natural to expect some more news about possible consolidations. But I'm trying to understand how NXP could fit in the porfolio os Intel or Qualcomm or Broadcom. Any hints?

"And I haven't held talks with the CEOs of Intel, Qualcomm or Broadcom for five or six weeks." Does it mean before 5-6 weeks he had talks with the big guys for an acquisition??
