There is a lot of Wi-Fi, base station and future handset work as well as automotive radar cropping up in 60-80 GHz that may be motiviating this in part.

It is very difficult to logically analyze this move by Analog Devices. Analog Devices must have more options. Why they moved to RF and microwave?

I feel it is logical because it is a market space that none of the other big analog

players TI, Maxim, Linear have any hold on...infact there is virtually no presence...

May be that means higher margins...

Yes, ADI has played around with RF and communication for two decades or more. It may be to cpmplete that desire. But $2B is a big amount. Unless Apple or like is backing them.

Analog Devices' $2 Billion RF Buy

It is a very interesting acquisition.  I am anxious to see what kinds of components they might be producing a year or two from now.

@hm: when compared to ADI's market cap (which is ~$17.1B), $2B is about 12%. ADI's revenue is ~$2.7B.  HITT on the otherhand has a market cap of $2.5B BUT the gross yearly revenues were only at $276M. So I am not convinced that the price tag ADI paid is a fair one. If I were a HITT insider, I would happily take the money and run!

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.
