I find the purchase interesting in that it is in the wireless arena, but I was wondering how this fits into the bigger picture. What is the intel on Unigroup and their product line? I was wondering how this acquisition fits into their product offerings or plans. Does anyone have the background on the company to add?

I am surprised to see that Spreadtrum has quite a good profit margin. Was thinking they are running on super thin margins by driving the costs downhill. Seems like there's not much competition at the low end these days. https://www.google.com/finance?q=NASDAQ%3ASPRD&fstype=ii&ei=m7jLUbDDDsjrlAW4qgE

Having an IC subsidiary has been proven wrong in the past. See Moto, Siemens, Philips. Buying an openly traded firm from a state-owned company is even worse. Don't kill the rising star.

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.
