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.
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 ;-))
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. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
