goafrit - since one month does not make a trend, the more important trajectory is seen by looking at the by-month 2012 year-to-date (YTD) sales growth numbers compared to 2011. These by-month YTD sales growths are presented below: Jan to Jan = -15.8% Jan thru Feb = -16.0% Jan thru Mar = -15.5% Jan thru Apr = -12.7% Jan thru May = -10.6% Jan thru Jun = -8.7% Jan thru Jul = -6.3% As illustrated this monthly trend is definitely improving but still negative through July.

This is essentially the kind of trajectory I expected. Many people are saying the economy is tanking, but the earnings are looking good. I will vote with the data over mere pundits. Hope UMC sustains this momentum.

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.
