That's a nice tip off. I wonder what the implications will be for Samsung if indeed that is true.

It's Samsung!

One of my trusted industry sources just shot me an e-mail, lettingme know that he believes that one of the OEMs who had deployed the Renesas LTE SoC  is Samsung: He said, "the upcoming Galaxy Ace 3 LTE smartphone apparently is utilizing the Renesas chipset."

Plot thickens.

Samsung and Nokia wrinkle

GeeKv2, your comment "After all it wouldn't want its patents to land up in the hands of someone like Samsung" is very insightful.

So, the IP quagmire in the mobile industtry has made it even tougher for RMC to either sell or licence RMC's IP out to others...That makes sense.

Lets not forget that this is an industry plagued by patent wars. Who knows if Nokia had a role to play here and it ended up spoiling the party. After all it wouldn't want its patents to land up in the hands of someone like Samsung

And "out of money" is the hard place to be in, renesasian.

We will be patiently waiting to hear which OEMS ended up designing in RMC chips.

Finding home for the technology, expertise and IP you guys had developed is solely on the management of Renesas and RMC, not you.

As for the accusation of not landing the big boys, the truth will out some day, but RMC certainly has the customer base and partnerships to make it huge. 

Right now, we can't say anything, but we are so close to making it, it's heartbreaking. Anyone who thinks our technology or strategy have been wrong doesn't understand what is actually happening.

We are just out of money.

Plain and simple.

@Junko: Time and again there are many organizations like these in current past. Often designers has their own vision and dreams that do not fit into calculated risk strategy of big organization. They need to look for VCs and float new organization. They come out with wornderful ideas and product. One recent example is Enpirion, engineers from AT and T. I wish all best for RMC designers for new innovation.

That's one of the most positive comments I've heard so far. You are absolutely right. The company might erroneously think that it can exist with fewer designers, but hey, designers don't need the company to exist. They can create their own.

Best of designers from RMC can start small fabless design house and create new IPs and cash it from big guys like Google, Micorsoft or others. It is never too late. There are always failure on path, give it one more try and designers together can find next wave in modem business.

GeekV2, "a crime against humanity" is exactly right. I am with you on that one.

I've also heard the same thing from another RMC executive, saying that "it's a good question" why nothing has been sold so far. 

Is it a matter of "negotiation skills" of the Japanese company, or Renesas has gotten a tad too greedy?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
