If lucky 1400 will join TSMC but what will happen to the other employees ? Will the be properly compensated ? Japan is facing lot of problems this decade like earthquakes, tsuname and financial slowdown. I hope thing will return to normalcy in Japan soon.

This is sad, they had a group that did power management IC's and discretes that seemed to be doing well couple of years ago. MP Divakar

It would seem that the company has been hit with the double whammy of poor sales due to economy and a large infrastructure that was too expensive to maintain. The cuts and reorganization will be painful, I am wondering if they will have enough strength and product offerings to survive?

TV market is certainly saturated recently and the companies involved in making semiconductor parts for the TV's could face the burn.

It can be understand that the decline in the FlatTV leads to the closing of the facility, but why the plant which is designing and manufacturing ICs for LCDs is also being closed?

Dynamic market condition and slow response creates similar situation. It is very essential to have vision at top management level.

This is not a big surprise. They are the largest microcontroller company in the world, but I don't think they'll hold that distinction for too much longer.

This is large scale restructuring. Consumer electronics and TV market has seen a major shift from Japanese manufactures to Samsung and others.

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.
