re: TI-National deal clears regulatory hurdles

Both TI and National were my source for LVDS transmitters and receivers. Certainly the variety of this type parts will decrease. There is a lot of overlap between the TI and NS product list. Lots of logic and bus drivers. Burr Brown was mainly analog. ADC and DAC products are always changing. I am grateful TI still makes the ACF2101 integrator part.

Among uncertain global economic situation, I think this could be one positive news for the industry in recent times. After the deal is closed, TI should get stronger. Any chance of any TI product getting cannibalized due to acquisition of National?

I don't think the brand will vanish right away, but it will eventually fade. You can look at Burr-Brown to see what will happen.

Will the "National" brand totally disappear?
