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?
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
