Auto & Industrial revenue is expected down mid/high single-digits after a strong CQ2 and soft demand environment. Wired is expected to decline high single-digits Q/Q due to softer Optical (core routing) with Consumer & Computer $30M lower Q/Q as the business transitions to a royalty. GMs are expected to be roughly flat at 51.25% (worse than our estimate due to lower proprietary optical) with slightly better opex Q/Q ($137M) yielding EPS of $0.68-0.69 vs. $0.70 Street."
