Some of the analog sales were driven also by the micro-inverter market which are supposed to see a slow down next year (2010 has been a banner year for this product segment!). But the adoption of solar products is yet to take off in larger scales in many developing countries, so the challenge is to find marketing & financing models that enable sales. When that market materializes, surely there will be demand for point-of-load micro inverters that use products from analog semi's like Linear, National, PowerOne, etc. I don't know if that is going to be 2011. Maxim acquired Teridian and PhyWorks, both of which diversify its product lines. Teridian's products fall into the analog category and may shore up some of the softening in the demand for analog products. Dr. MP Divakar

Certainly there is no end so soon for the electronics. We will see more interesting gadgets will be coming into the everyday life of humans. Ranging from the digital display watches which was released by Apple recently. There is lot of creative electronics engineers out there who are trying to invent many products everyday ...

It seems that a shoe distributor/company is spaming EETimes. This is outrageous; where will this end? A quick lawsuit would likely put them out of business.

How may Ipads does a person need. How many computers does a person need? It certainly looks like we have hit the maturity point in the electronics industry.

The semiconductor industry is facing a 'huge slowdown in capex' in 2008, according to a report from SEMI, the trade body for the semiconductor production equipment manufacturing industry. http://leanspaacai.org

It's interesting that a $2 chip "win" for the iPad appears to result in a substantial increase in revenue. Can the craze continue? It does suggest tough times for the rest of the year...

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
