This is a bad trend. This time of the year should be squential increases as companies prepare for holiday sales.

Ohhh- i just got it wrong. UMC had the same downward trend but a bigger number.

I have heard that booking of electronics goods is not up to the expectation. It apparently will lead likely the decline of production chips, affecting the sales of both TSMC and UMC. However, the news indicate there is a decline 25 years-over-years. What's then the implication?

The year-over-year Sept sales comparison is certainly worrisome but with so much going on in the world economy, I tend to look at this as not-so-bad news! EU is facing tough choices with Greece (soon Spain & Portugal?) which has thrown uncertainties in many businesses either postponing their orders or outright cancelling. MP Divakar

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.
