I think there is no way that a big, established semiconducter company, which leads the field in audio and power technologies, will go down. So I think I can safely say that National Semiconductor will be around for at least another decade. Oops, did I miss something? Read Ecclesiastes 9:11 - "The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the sttrong...but time and circumstance happen to them all" - or words to that effect.

Five years is a short time horizon. I wonder how different the responses would be if the time frame were changed to 10 years?

5 years is a reasonable amount of time.If some other new technology comes in by 2014 and by 2017 all the above needs to either shift to it or vanish.

Looks like the prognosis for Japanese companies is not that good if this survey is considered to be scientific enough! MP Divakar
