So--- TI is acquiring National Semiconductor? Now TI can run them into the ground just like they did to Burr-Brown!
Regards, Neil P. Albaugh ex-Burr-Brown
Ah, the oft-referenced and published Mr. Albaugh. I’m honored you joined the community. I remember you from my years as editor of ECN and from my colleagues at EDN.
Now, how about we move away from this running-into-the-ground talk and how about we just hit the ground running? First step, you already did it. You joined E2E. Second step: please stick around. There are thousands of members who could benefit from your knowledge and experience. I’d love to see your guru status in the offline world become guru status online here on E2E…

I believe that BB run into the ground itself. The sam story as Data Point if you remember. I am 75 and I have growen up with them, however I have not used one single device from them. You well know the reasons.
Ti has done well by buyng up National. They did not have a Linear basis and National is quite diversified in this market. They did blunder buyng CC but their days are numbered so here you have it. I wait for the day when TI will buy RFM and/or RFMD. Then I will open up the shampain bottle kept for so long :)
