Rob, so this is one of the higher-value types of manufacturing you mentioned (in a different post's thread) that's remained here in the US, and not been offshored. What are the other app areas that have stayed here?

Yes, this is one of the hottest areas in electronics. Plus, the manufacturing of medical equipment is highly complex (high mix low volume), so it tends to stay in North America. It's one of the shinning starts of North American manufactruing.

Looks like a good show, Chuck. I'm really interested to see what Freeescale has to say about this app area.

Hey Chuck, looks like you have another great radio show lined up. The healthcare industry has become innovative ground for electronics. It will be good to hear about recent advances from Freescale.
