Not a good sign for the electronics industry. However, most growth these days is in smartphones, tablets and the LTE infrastructure roll out--places where Intel has no strong play.

Song Chou I don't disagree with much of what you say BUT the phrase "exceptional strong iphone 5 sales which are looking to break all past records," seems premature. How do you know iPhone 5 will sell strongly? I do agree that it is unlikely to have a 20-nm processor inside and could be 45-nm, 32-nm or 28-nm.

Paul O. needs a new business model for Intel. No model works for 40 years without adjustment. It is easy to blame "macro environment" but that will not slow exceptional strong iphone 5 sales which are looking to break all past records. Intel's problem is the cost of new technologies just keeps going up while the new silicon technologies are offering much less market value in return. To put 3D 22nm finfet in production will cost a record ~$20B capex (~10B/year for 2 years) for little to no real product level improvement (sandy bridge is just as good as ivy bridge to nearly all users). Going forward intel needs to fund suppliers like ASML ($5B check already) to develop technologies plus even higher capex. There much be a better way to send ~$25B to get a better ROI in market.

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.
