CSR is important in IOT, as the article states. But ... if I remember correctly, CSR bought SiRF, that was and / or is the leader of location technology --- including everyone's favorite "next big thing" indoor location.
It takes a great team with a great leader to understand the overall issues of "what's next".
All of this leads into the king of all "immediate futures" with "mobile", including a space I occupy in medical devices.
I love seeing General Instruments Microelectronics doing so well so consistently! And they still have my Pic family front and center! But insanely better!
