  • $539.0 million in revenue, in line with guidance
  • GAAP and non-GAAP gross margins were 37.6% and 47.4%, respectively, and represent a 110 bps and 150 bps increase year-over-year
  • GAAP and Non-GAAP diluted EPS were $0.05 and $0.27, respectively, above the high-end of guidance
  • Closed the NAND JV to exit the business and increase focus on high-growth IoT and automotive end markets

Overall design activity increased 15%, led by Automotive and IoT, and in particular we saw strength in automotive platform wins for our new Traveo-II MCU during the quarter.
