Fairchild's share price jumped like crazy in the past weeks. So it’s kinda weird to hear they cut on workforce. Is South Portland the only fab they have in U.S.?

Maybe the cut caused the share price to rise?

FSC South Portland is said to be the oldest continually operating Semiconductor Manufacturing operation in the USA; opened in 1962. More USA capabilities disappearing to never return. Ave atque vale !

It was coming, they cannot compete in the market. It is long expected that this firm can go down.

Fairchild Semiconductor has got many deep roots in the power devices and integrated circuits, this is not a good news for the electronic industry and also the employees of Fairchild Semiconductor.

Fairchild is also popular but the range of integrated circuits offered by them is comparably less.New innovative products are mostly based on IC's.So fair child also needs to look into expanding their range of IC's to pay off instead of lay off.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
