Product mix is one issue. One supplier has major quality problems affecting their volume supply into the data center segment. They're now down binning into tier 2 & 3 segments creating an over supply condition and crashing the price. Recovery? Late 2011 is questionable though 2Q 2012 is the best bet.

Possibly a shift from PC to tablet/pad, the latter having NAND and relatively little DRAM, compared to the former.

Interesting. Is this due to manufacturers shifting to other types of memory, or to a decrease in PC sales? What does this indicate about the overall health of the electronics industry?
