Sensors do account for a large portion of amsí revenue, especially after the TAOS acquisition last year. However, even before the deal, amsí product portfolio included sensors for the industrial and medical markets. The deal not only rounded out its sensor offerings, but gave it a bigger presence in smart phones and tablets. It is precisely this area, too, that ams expects to garner higher sales growth with its wireless products, including its NFC-based chips for mobile payment and UHF RFID reader solutions for authentication.

"With the TAOS acquisition, sensors and sensor interface ICs now account for as much as 70 percent of amsí revenues". Is it a bit strange that revenue is so dominated by a newly acquired company? Can I say the original AMS guys are not doing well in their original work?
