    • More like 100%. Freescale is one of the largest designers and makers of industrial controls actually in the United States at a time when people are far far more concerned about what ELSE their controllers might be up to. Hence we won't be buying them from anyone we don't trust, or whose manufacturing process (particularly of wafers) has to be inspected at a microscopic level for security reasons DURING the fabrication process. That's going to leave Freescale and a few others with wipe open spaces for defense contracts as then we won't have to worry about "doped" chips with firmware on them doing things our government wouldn't approve of. One nice chip I saw was a double layer with the top being not connected to anything and the pins going to another similar chip hooked up to also provide surveillance. Just a prototype at the time but it made me realize how dependent we are on functional state charts and assumptions about the operation of semiconductors whose packaging prevents us from inspecting them directly.
