There are too many vendors for microcontrers. It's hard to be competitive long enough.

Yes, Automotive is their strength, but also microcontollers to the general market.

Yes, the same mantra he had at TI. The monthly meetings we focused on market share. I expect him to do the same at Freescale. The problem at TI was that most of the market share gains were through acquisitions. I don't think he can do that at Freescale.

Wow, who would have thunk it, increase market share, yup that's why they get the big bucks. He was brave to speak this early, but this is clearly a meaningless platitude.

@Simon7382- thanks for weighing in. In my opinion, the first public comments of one of the world's largest chip vendors are newsworthy. But to each his own. Cheers.

We hope so for him and others that need his help to keep their jobs. But it will not be easy because most of the factors are not within his control. China is emerging a threat and that is a concern for a small player like Freescale

I wish him good luck. Freescale needs to be set FREE to actually grow. But just as Nokia boss has figured out, it goes beyond talking!

All Lowe said was motherhood and apple pie. Of course having been 2 weeks on the job this was to be expected. What I do not see though: what is newsworthy here at all.

thanks analogician. Thanks also for pointing out that we were short one "g." It's been corrected.
