TI used to be the biggest mobile chip maker, but now Qualcomm is the third largest chip maker [1], and if the PC market keeps decling, and Intel with it, they will be #1, too, at least if Samsung has nothing to say about it. [1] - http://techdomino.com/qualcomm-3rd-biggest-chip-maker-by-revenue/

TI long time ago have good base-band business and they are leader in DSP market with 65% market share and this was led to TI dominance in wireless telecommunication application. For comparison in back in 2008 TI DSP revenue is about $5B but now its just mere $1.1B and much of application still came from telecommunication solution. Its very hard to think why TI just gave up and kill their good revenue source. Same as the case of Sensata Technologies, I still keep searching why TI spinoff this company because Sensata is one of large MEMS player. Combined revenue of TI and Sensata MEMS revenue is about $1.1B today.

Interesting indicator of how tough it is out there, is ROHM moved UP from 22nd to 19th, on a DECLINE in sales of 3%.

Interesting that guys like like Freescale, TI, ST Micro etc are all stagnating in spite of their "diverse" portfolio, Qualcomm is not dependent on mobile but they are dependent on telecom, internet-of-things and connectivity and their execution and focus is driving the market.

Simple. while TI chickened out of the fast growing mobile app processor market, Qualcomm gladly took all the market share.

TI can grow in some other areas while Qualcomm is so depending on the mobile market. Of course, mobile is nowadays the red hot pie but who knows what will be the next revolutionary market that Qualcomm may not be able to turn around. TI on the other hands has too many different sections and their broad range of products will gain momentum when the economy rally back. Of course, this all depends very much on how good the management is performing!

I think TI will stable its business in the year of 2013 and start to grow again in the year of 2014 and in upcoming years. TI have wide range of products it can offer, and they keep churning on new and innovative products and solutions. Also they have customers base of more than 100,000. TI is surely have a great tools to grow again.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
