33% sequential revenue growth but still posting a loss? I thought MEMs related market is rather hot...Kris

Kris, the MEMS microphones market is commoditized to the hilt with low margins. The volumes have to be high enough to erase Wolfson's losses. Besides Wolfson may also have loss-leading product lines which might have been offset by the microphone sales. MP Divakar

Well, that shows that you can get design wins if you are willing to sell stuff for a loss!
