@ yalanand, r u TI CEO's PR or sth? anyway, this is a MAJOR failure for ti!!! nb can deny it. a project failed to take off due to planning, excution failure. next time if TI want to hire someone, it better write in it's ads: this is a contract position, might gone in 1-2 years, better rent an apt, don't buy expensive cars...

If there are very high margins to be made anywhere, that will naturally attract a lot of competition and the margins will be marginal over time. So if we are to get out of any business because of low margins, there will be no business TI can do. The solution is to is keep innovating, not getting out. NVdia, who even doesnt have the same kinda history in App processors as TI, has succesful TEGRA line. now what is TI doing??????

trend TI can't keep up with because it began phasing out its baseband technology years ago. @Dylan, thanks for the post. Is it very difficult for TI to review its baseband technology ? Why did TI phase out its baseband technology ?

@Stanley, lets not be too pessimistic about TI. TI acquired National recently. I think this is one more reason why we are seeing this layoffs because they would like to trim the employee number to reduce the costs. This is just TI side layoffs, we haven't heard how many people from National were removed from the job when the merger happened.

@sprite, TI becoming next motorola, that would be exaggerating facts. TI's other businesses are doing pretty good, its just that they are getting out of wireless because they think they can do well in other domains like Analog which is the core strength of TI. If you remember TI has retained all its analog fabs.

@jmrowca, I dont think Rich has any role to play in this decision of TI. What will you do with an entitiy which is making loss year after year. Samsung has started building its own processors, Apple is also trying new vendors for its processors so TI has not major customers left in wireless wing.

@eewiz, I dont think TI lost the fighting spirit. Its just TI's new strategy. Infact this is smart move by TI because they want to get out of loss making business. Fact of the matter is margins in wireless domain has fallen drastically and thus TI wants to concentrate purely on Analog and embedded side.

That's their embedded stuff, no? Thus change in tact for their broader CPU product line.
