Most assuredly correct. And they backed the wrong horse in selecting MIPS for their 32bit devices.

Microchip has consistently been able to weather the storms. Is the market overreacting?

One more factor is....growth of ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers. Microchips mcu business is about to decline by these little giants.

Back-to-school will help some manufacturers and retailers, but back-to-work (lower unemployment) would help a lot more!

Isn't this the time when back to school leads to nice revenue growths and reduction of stockpile of inventories? This taken in conjunction with the Fabs lower than expected earnings speaks of lackluster mid year and has ominous signs if continued. Some economists have been warning of the faltering of economic recovery, which I am afraid is very scary when clubbed with the uncertainity in EU over Greece and the earthquakes in Japan.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ 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.
