YEah, you are right. But you did it very well. Congrats!

Thanks Roger. I must admit I haven't heard that one or even considered it. And now TI has responded with a strong denial that OMAP is even for sale. So it seems at least at this point like all of this speculation was (or at least is now) for naught.

Dylan, My question was about Atmel buying OMAP division.

@help.fulguy- unfair criticism. I've duly credited SemiAccurate with reporting that Broadcom is considering acquiring OMAP and included a link to the article (second paragraph). The rest of the article is based on correspondence with TI, Craig Berger's report and my conversation with Will Strauss.

I like your idea DrDon. But my feeling is google is not into cell phone making, they need it to protect their OS so they can continue to support Android. Probably Google will keep patents and after few years will spin off Motorola again. Or may keep it for its google TV division.

My money is on Google...buy Motorola Wireless to line up against Apple, then buy OMAP (Apple bought PA-SEMI) to get control of the silicon platform Droid runs on. This would work.

BTW, Dylan, Charlie's guys on Semi-Accurate will open a can of Whoop-ass if you continue to copy their article here and not give them credit...LOL

I highly doubt Intel is interested in purchasing any prepackaged ARM solution when they could have easily Strongarmed their way in years ago. Instead, they sold off Strongarm. I seriously doubt if they will revisit that abandoned road. AMD is highly doubtful as an ARM licensee also, but for entirely different reasons then Intel. AT this point in time, they have neither the revenue or focus to be diverted by an ARM development segment. Broadcom makes a lot of sense. They threw much development into their MIPS based processors. Perhaps if they purchased OMAP they would enhance it with a Hypertransport interface to compliment their communications offerings..

Dylan, dont waste your time on catchy headline articles. There are much better topics to write articles on. x86 is like religion at Intel, You cant expect them to convert their religion that easily without a good fight.

Big mistake in the past.

Radio
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.
