Just curious to know the objective that the TI management had in their mind for this acquisition. Is it because TI wanted to increase their market share and portfolio in the analog domain (I noticed, analog have been in TI's focus in the seminars since last couple of years)? Does TI plan to become analog giant?

Maybe to reduce competitors.

TI wants to be a one-stop-shop for Analog and integrated electronic devices. Economies of scope and scale could give it a major comparative advantage.

Alongwith financial contribution, TI should also consider innovation from NSC. Will it suffer or will it propsper? I am more interested in innovation from NSC.

Acquisition can be said a good merger, as now designer will get a better interfacing of Code Composer Studio and LabView.

Why labview? I am afraid you are confused between National Semiconductor and National Instrument. These two are different companies.

Agreed TingLu. And anyway, Code Composer Studio is an IDE for the embedded devices, unlike LabView.

I would say, is it not already an analog giant? With National on board, TI is approaching nearly double the market share as the next in line. Fragmented, as the analog market is, it still says a lot about the analog powerhouse TI has become.

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.
