Fairchild's share price jumped like crazy in the past weeks. So itís 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.

Perhaps they are shifting the production to somewhere else..

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.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Timesí Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
