Closer Look: A lull in the antidumping battleground

5/29/2002   Post a comment
All's quiet on the U.S. antidumping front -- and is likely to remain so for some time to come. That's assuming the global DRAM market doesn't fall apart again causing Micron Technology to get back into an antidumping mode. For the present, there are no major semiconductor antidumping complaints on the U.S. Commerce Department and International Trade Commission dockets. That's continued good news for OEMs and supply chain buyers who are always alarmed about chip antidumping cases resulting in

You would think the networking equipment market was booming again, the way DRAM vendors are falling all over themselves courting OEMs. Never mind that routers and switches are still in the doldrums. Memory suppliers are in a full court press, pushing different types of new generation high performance DRAMs. And all this fervent memory hawking is for chips that the vendors themselves concede will be no more than 1% of the total DRAM market in 2005.

Most manufacturers know they need to operate lean, especially with all signs pointing to a slow economic recovery. But many recoil at the thought of 'lean manufacturing,' as it is widely regarded as requiring a complete re-examination of every assumption under which they work.
Closer Look: AMD has mixed messages about antitrust
Blog  
5/1/2002   Post a comment
Advanced Micro Devices thinks Microsoft Corp. has an antitrust clean slate, while Intel Corp. definitely has an antitrust black hat. AMD Chairman W. J. (Jerry) Sanders III last month told a federal court antitrust hearing that Microsoft's lock on the market isn't bad. The software titan actually promotes competition with its "open" operating system that a host of PC makers use. The same logic, of course, could possibly apply to Intel, whose processors control more than three-quarters of the
