Ooops - Intel should have been Intersil. Thinking about the rumors on Intel-nVidia and the new CEO there... If that happens it would be an earthquake event -- but perhaps also timely and necessary

Dave Bell is certainly among the most respected CEOs among analog IC companies. His expertise in Power IC business is also legendary and illustrated by visionary GaN-on-Silicon IC patents. One of the problems is the slow-down in PC business - one of the core revenue source for Intel. Another might the ever-increasing dominance of all things power by TI. One should certainly wish well to Dave and commend him for his integrity and leadership.

@comfortable i understand that is the problem and was offering a possible solution which would be to merge with a bigger analog player with a slightly weaker presence in the power management market...

Power management is a good fit? THAT is the problem. Power management has become commodity. Their problem is a lack of diversity that should be well under way by now.

Intersil should ideally merge with one of the big analog players. Their power management portfolio should be a very good fit. @ Brian any insights into possible merger of Intersil with one of the large Analog Players(ADI or Maxim or Linear)

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
