TI’s compelling product line and manufacturing efficiencies, which include growing 300-millimeter Analog output, are likely to have helped this segment achieve growth during the quarter. However, weak performance of high-volume and power product lines may have affected its earnings.
Markedly, demand for the PCs and servers that power data centers is expected to have increased in the quarter to be reported as people are increasingly working from home due to the pandemic.
However, weak performance of processors and connected microcontrollers, along with reduced factory loadings might have affected its earnings in the to-be-reported quarter.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for Embedded Processing revenues is currently pegged at $573 million, suggesting a decrease of 12.3% from the year-ago quarter.For the Analog segment, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues is currently pegged at $2.13 billion, indicating a 13.5% year-over-year decrease.
