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 ;-))
