Most forecasts so far for next year call for only slight growth at best–or on the order of 1%-to-6%. That would be coming after this year's big plunge of between 32% and 35%.

But Semico says it's now detecting stronger-than-expected growth in the final months of 2001. It discovered them by analyzing the typical saw-tooth pattern” of monthly semiconductor sales that frequently obscures trends. Some semiconductor product types–flash memories, standard cell ICs, micrologic, and analog devices–already are pointing to a recovery, the market researcher says. Analog chips often have been a leading indicator of market conditions, according to Semico.

Infineon CEO Ulrich Schumacher confirmed to EBN at midweek that the two companies were discussing the DRAM merger, but he wasn't sure when a deal would be completed. The plan is being presented to both corporate boards, and if they go along with it, final details will then be worked out. Current talks don't include Toshiba's flash memory operations, Schumacher said. We're having enough trouble concluding DRAM negotiations without trying to take on flash memory.”

When Schumacher was asked why Infineon was pursuing Toshiba's DRAM operations, he responded: Why shouldn't I, if I can get it for free?” There has been speculation that it would be more costly for Toshiba to shut down its DRAM operations than to spin them off.

Infineon is interested in a deal with Toshiba because it would bring Infineon a key customer base in Japan, Schumacher said. He also was interested in hiring the Japanese company's DRAM engineers. Earlier this week, Reuters reported the two companies were close to announcing a DRAM deal where Infineon would take as much as 80% of a joint venture with Toshiba.

— Vi tror nu att lågvattenmärket för orderingången nåddes under det tredje kvartalet och att intäkterna når botten under det fjärde kvartalet, säger Engibous.

Intels finanschef, Andy Bryant, säger att han väntar sig att försäljningen under det fjärde kvartalet kommer att hamna mellan 6,2 miljarder dollar och 6,8 miljarder dollar. Analytiker på Wall Street har förespått försäljningssiffror runt 6,5 miljarder dollar.

MANHASSET, N.Y. — Texas Instruments Inc. has combined its popular C5000 DSP architecture with an ARM7 Thumb RISC processor and wrapped the result in real-time operating system support, taking dead aim at embedded applications.

The hardware/software solution — which includes Wind River Systems' VxWorks, Accelerated Technologies' Nucleus and RidgeRun's DSPLinux operating systems, as well as TI's own DSP/BIOS — is intended to speed time-to-market of applications such as text-to-speech, wireless data, voice recognition and networked security, while also reducing their cost, size and power consumption, TI said.

The C5470 and C5471 represent the first off-the-shelf commercially available DSP/RISC combination processors from TI,” said product-marketing manager Dennis Barrett. They're also the first to have RidgeRun's DSPLinux ported to them.”
