I'm impressed with the positive trends of this company. According to one source it is now California's Orange County’s "third-biggest chip maker by sales and reported about $520 million in revenue for the 12 months through October," of last year. Analysts have it pegged to reach $1 billion in annual sales thru more acquisitions. Security both in civilian and military apps is a growing field, ans Microsemi seems to be in the thick of it.
Wow, there is a sudden wave of acquisition among companies. Is it a sign of industrial consolidation? BTW, Microsemi is aggressively widening its product portfolio and it is interesting to see how it grow and manage so many different areas of applications.
