Ooops - I meant to say to T-Terry:
...there are major Analog segments in which TI is NOT a dominant vendor.
I believe that Steve Levin - Managing Director of the Power section at PG is preparing a major release on TI and Analog IC vendor ranking by product segments.
In his unique in-depth analysis the ranking is very, very different and includes Infineon, Rohm, Sanken and many others. Stay tuned...
Once again, my apology for a type (omitting NOT) - it happens in the best families ;-))
To T-Terry -- there are major Analog segments in which TI is a dominant vendor
To Peter -- thank you for a stream of excellent articles. However, if I may say -- the IHS table is not correct in several respects, including that it includes a mix of:
-- Catalog ICs (function-specific + ASSPs)
-- Power discrete (diodes and transistors)
-- Parts of custom (like in ON Semi about $460M of AMI business)
-- TI’s number also includes the entire CY11 of revenues, which is incorrect. Gartner correctly recognizes National revenues until 9/23/11 as non-TI revenues
Once again, Peter thanks for your articles.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
