Gregg, congrats. Be aware that Freescale is freely falling without any scaling. The problem is simply that Freescale is in a business where they need volume to make money in a commoditized sector.Greg will have to shift them to profitable areas or find ways to boost volume. Otherwise, nothing changes.

It's great to see a fellow ex-TIer at the helm of Freescale

Congratulations to Gregg Lowe. I am sure his experience as analog business at Texas Instruments will help him to drive the company toward success.

@Selinz, do you think success is as simple as that equation ? If that is the case everyone will start hiring TI guy.

Not sure why they would pick an analog guy, but he did run the microcontroller part of TI for a while.

@daleste, is it a possibility that Freescale is planning to venture big time into analog business ?

That's one way to read Gregg Lowe's appointment.

I don't know why Freescale would go in that direction. On was that piece and it split off from Motorola earlier.

The welcomed surprise here is that Freescale has acquired a well versed seasoned leader from a significant competitor. As I worked within Gregg’s organization during my time with TI, I couldn’t be more pleased. Gregg had a hand at building TI's Medical initiative early on. With his expertise in automotive, sales, analog, and yes – the healthcare segment, having Gregg at the helm is very welcomed here. I’m looking forward to his imprint as a result of expected and certain change. This will be fun and profitable! Let the new CEO reign in -

Lost talent for TI, I am not sure if Lowe can manage to lead the Freescale team, they are not easy to integrate, however I wish him all the best, he is one of the best in the industry

I would doubt anyone is looking to acquire Freescale. They have way too much debt.

Freescale has definitely made very good strides in the past three years to get into good shape. I believe the new leader will continue to improve the business.

Motorola used to be well respected in the analog world back in the 80's. With Gregg Lowe at the helm now, I believe Freescale will retrieve some of that respect and success again in the analog world. I used to work under Gregg Lowe while at TI. He's a personable and capable leader. I hope the best for him and Freescale. - Mike Peralta Device Modeling Engineer Medtronic Tempe Campus peralta_mike@hotmail.com

I have had a very serious job site threats coming from a Freescale Supervisor. Worked as a Contractor for 18 years and lost my job due to illegal intimidation. Gregg could you please help me out with this matter, I have not had any support this illegal intimidation. Arvin Jones 512-348-5013

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

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.
