Infineon to Buy TI Broadband Chip Unit

By Alexei Oreskovic Senior Writer
6/25/2007 4:00 PM EDT

Infineon Technologies (IFX) announced plans Monday to acquire a broadband communications chip business from Texas Instruments (TXN) .

The deal gives Infineon another piece in a broad catalog of DSL products that the German chipmaker is pitching to telecommunications carriers.

Infineon will acquire TI's so-called DSL customer premises equipment business for an undisclosed sum. The business consists of chips contained in the broadband modems and gateways that many businesses and consumers use to access the Internet.

TI spokesman Gary Silcott would not comment on the division's revenue. He said that TI's overall broadband business, which includes various other businesses such as cable, is less than 5% of TI's overall revenue, which totaled $14.2 billion in 2006.

Silcott said the decision to divest the company of the CPE business was part of TI's "regular evaluation of which businesses we want to continue to invest in and where we should be spending more time."

While TI does not disclose whether the CPE business is profitable, Silcott said the company has consistently said CPE margins are challenging in such a competitive and cost-sensitive business.

Shares of TI were up 0.1%, or 4 cents, at $37.15. Infineon shares were off 0.9% at $16.53.

According to Infineon, the deal is expected to close in the summer.

"Combining Texas Instruments' DSL CPE products with Infineon's innovative roadmap leads to a unique end-to-end offering for DSL customers," said Hermann Eul, head of Infineon's communications solutions group in a statement.

Hello Ray !

Thanks for the Birthday Greeting!

Damn I'm 14 Years Old. But a Happy 14!

That's because for Christmas I bought myself a few Gold Buffalo Coins, 120 of them. Yes pure .9999

When I purchased, Gold was $796 on Dec 20th. Today it's a few bucks shy of $1000, and the coin runs $1,033.00. Not a bad return for a little over 60 days.

Where is Gold headed? North to Alaska

Right now I believe it's passing through Argentina.

Hey where are all the Amati Gang these days?

Great to hear from you Ray, and thanks for remembering my day, as it only comes around once every 1,461 days.

I Got My DMT

So how you doing these days Ray ?

I'm still Punching Holes in Space. As a matter of fact we launch shuttle Endeavour on at 2:28 am Tuesday morning. Then next Saturday Mar. 15th we have a Delta II launch at 2:09 am with a GPS Satellite payload.

Two holes in a week! but then they will vent out some of that Green House Gas the liberals keep taking about that will melt the planet.......(G)

I mean come on, We must admit they do take things to extremes, and some are way out there! The latest I heard "They don't want the Girl Scouts to sell cookies anymore" because they make you fat" I look at it like my stance on guns....
Cookies don't make people fat, People do! No where on the box does it say this box equals 1 serving.......

I have created the Ultimate Liberal Position, not even they can top it, and they can have it free, if they allow us to drill an for Oil in ANWR! With Sideways drilling the footprint of the entire operation is small enough that an endangered snail could cover the circumference in a day.

Jeez, we can't drill for oil, we haven't built an oil refinery in 45 years because of these people. Imagine if this were a growing food issue. We would all starve.


Liberals state "Mankind is Killing the Planet", "All Humans Must Leave. Tickets for Departure go on Sale Starting Tomorrow.

Weren't we suppose to be discussing Gold?

Sorry about the Rant.

Hey Jim .. Pretty Good.

Been doing my best to understand the Meaning of Life and the Machinations of the Market.

LOL .. No wonder it's hard to find a box of GS Cookies .. they are either Gone or Hidden for the next Snack. lol

I've said for quite a while that the Refinery Bottleneck is the Problem. Conversion to Light from Heavy is what we need but it's non cost effective at this point.
There used to be a bunch of Capped Wells around here .. just waiting for the price to go a bit Higher. Too bad it's not the Light Sweet. Last light Sweet here in this area was tapped by ASH Ashland Oil down in COAL COUNTRY .. now sold out to Marathon along with all the Refineries.

It's going to take a while to get the Rigs built to drill in lower producing areas again. They all went for the more promising areas where now they have been turned over to State Control .. what's the word I'm looking for .. France did it .. Chavez did it. Anyway you know what I mean.

I've been on the E-Wave Thread where FA is not the Prime Directive so Excuse me if I'm a little rusty on the FA Part .. :)

I don't know if you checked my recent posts in my profile or not .. but We're reaching Critical Mass at the moment.
