Wafer processing time at TSMC remains very long...but the slowing consumer market (at least in North America) is bound to relief that pressure eventually...Kris

There has been a decline in LCD shipments (which is an indicator of consumer apps) and this news item confirms that consumer applications will continue to be slow - when is the turn around?

really impressive numbers for 2010. Let's see what happens in next year. Most of the reports and article do not give a much positive outlook for 2011 and 2012. Only time will tell.

This shows that the communications related equipments, primarily cell phones are in huge demand. In emerging economies like India, there is a huge demand for these devices. And with the smartphones & PDAs being available at much cheaper prices, the demand for computer related equipments is projected to be down. However, with the economic recovery taking baby steps, why is the demand from consumer equipments projected low ?

A confirmation that there will be a slow down in the 4th quarter. I hope this will be a small one with more growth next year.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
