(TI), on mobile phone designs, and the company's strategic plans. He says lower power consumption, better displays and simplification are needed for mobile phones. Delfassy is proud that TI has reduced the cost of a phone to $20, and believes that it can drop further with at least two more process nodes after 45nm.
