Bill, thanks for sharing your takeaways from last week. Itís an exciting time for TI and its customers! I didnít get a chance to meet with you this round, but hope to in the near future. Abraxalito Ė Interesting take. I can assure you that TIís portfolio of ARM-based embedded processing solutions is unmatched in breadth and support, and we are committed to serving our customer needs Ė across cores, peripherals, power, software, price and beyond. Stay tuned for news on Stellaris Cortex-M4F Ė as I like to say, itíll be worth the wait. -Miguel Morales, Stellaris MCUs

I'm interested to know: Are they expanding on resources to cater to the increased efforts on analog developments? Or, are they planning to cut the cost down on something else to manage the increased efforts on analog activities?

The 'portable medical instrument' device could be the result of the TI's takeover of Nulife semiconductor sometime back. I think it is more important than those big machines like MRI, CAT etc which can be huge investments, affordable only to medical institutions. 'Portable medical devices' on the other hand could be handy to doctors, if it is not too expensive.

" especially for personal instrumentation (would you like a portable ultrasound unit to see where your vein is, before we stick in that needle?)" I would really need one of those. Nurses always have difficulty in finding my veins for sticking in the needle and sometimes they need more than one try to find the right spot :(

Perhaps TI really is omnicompetent - I seriously doubt it myself. Then they're jack of all trades and master of some? Too many balls in the air and lack of integration of acquisitions into their core products - Stellaris being the obvious example. TI can't be wholeheartedly behind ARM because Cortex M4 eats too much of their 16bit DSP range.

TI has definitely come out with some amazing products in the power management, medical and advanced motor control domains. The intent, as mentioned, is fully backed by matching products.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Timesí 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.
