I take it that NO one in Japan is bold enough to say "Let Renesas go bankrupt!" and then run for elections! That pun aside, there may be a Obama-esque approach to saving Renesas, perhaps time will tell. MP Divakar

I am not sure if the remaining Renesas can survive in ten years. I predict that the saved Renesas will decline in the worldwide semiconductor chart at least by 1 position every year, starting from CY2013. This is pathetic, throwing good money at bad management and ethics.

Your thought will only come true over my dead body. Renesas might have that moment two years ago, but no longer have such an opportunity.

Japan need to save itself! To save Renesas, the system LSI is to break out to join another 2 lossing entities - Fujitsu and Panasonic. So years down the road, someone will has to save this poor chap that was abandoned by their parents again (just like Renesas which was broken out by the NEC, Hitachi & Mitsubishi). anyway I will like to what will be the strategy of a pure MCU company in this competitive market. Perhaps, in near future, every Japan semiconductor will finally be integrated by INCJ to form a single entity?

Two reasons; wireless IP and QCOM excellence in engineering. The ability QCOM has to introduce new chipset in an annual basis is comparable to a great Tour de France team keeping a fast pace that few if any team can match. The investment required to keep pace with QCOM also requires to have significant market share (30%?). A very difficult task indeed.

Lifeline for another year or two.. maybe. After that what Renesas will do?

The proposals to save a big name in the industry by the Japanese government seems to be great. Now leaders from ten various companies are joining and they will definitely able to steer Rensas in the appropriate path to provide a good service to their customers and to the investors and in turn to the Rensas family of people.

3G / 4G baseband markets are hot. I though renesas has a real shot at being #2 to Qualcomm. Anyone have any insight why it is so hard to compete Qualcomm http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4236346/Renesas-rolls-combo-LTE-3G-baseband

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.
