This is industry wide - it is very bad. I do not know if this is competition or just the pressure from Wall Street. It is too early to say.

First AMD and now Spansion. Will there be more layoffs announced? Interesting when at least in the local (Silicon Valley), news there have been recent articles about having a lower unemployment rate than the rest of the state.

There does seem to be a lot of down sizing in the industry right now. Consolidating their production facilities tells me that they don't have enough product being manufactured to keep them both busy. Not a good direction for the company.

Yes, this is disturbing. They were strong player in NOR. Where is that market going?

I would have to speculate that the market is going to NAND. For applications of code storage, I am not sure that this is a prudent direction. NOR is much higher quality flash and better suited towards code storage. Hang in there Spansion!

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.
