Texas Instruments to flog Arm division

Written by Nick Farell

Rumour mill turns
Semi-Accurate has dug up a rumour which says that Texas Instruments about to flog its ARM/OMAP division.

Those apparently interested in buying the outfit are Intel, AMD, ATIC, and Nvidia. However any outfit with an ARM chip in process now would not be a good candidate.

Intel is the least likely. It had and flogged its ARM division and its Atom is the biggest challenger to the ARM camp. As Semi-Accurate says, Intel buying OMAP would be an admission of defeat.

AMD, ATIC, or some combination of both is the most likely as AMD is without a consumer electronics strategy, and needs an ARM chip. Of course it had one once, but it flogged it too.

-Good news is they had to, to stay afloat after acquiring ATi. AMD couldn't afford to focus on AMD and ATi as much as they'd have liked.

As Semi-Accurate says, Intel buying OMAP would be an admission of defeat.
-Intel recently said it is accelerating Atom development.

first of all,,, it's grammatically read " an ironic statement", NOT "an irony"...secondly, when you said, "sometimes i forget troll aren't that much inteligent."." ....troll is plural, "TROLLS aren't"..etc.etc......and "that much" should be "very". OH, and of course you misspelled INTELLIGENT! WOW...that is what you call troll VOMIT! lets recap...your statement should have read...." calm down, it is clear you can't get an ironic statement, even if it's quite evident. sometimes i forget TROLLS aren't VERY ..INTELLIGENT"!

They already have their SoC designing accounted for.

I think it's a shame if this turns out to be true, the OMAP platform is IMO on of the very best when it comes to ARM SoC designs.

If it's truly to be sold off I hope it's picked up by someone that intends to continue developing it rather than just hoard the IP.
