@Roger Sleep is a low-energy state compared to dynamic activity when awake. There is still a lot of brain activity, breathing, processing of food and information going on. But things slow down; tired muscles rest and repair. In that sense it feels like Infineon, which made a good profit in FY12, is a strong company but has decided to slow things down and at least take things easy through a difficult winter.

Didn't they get $1.4B from Intel for their wireless biz end of 2010? They should have enough cash for dry times. Looks like Kulim 2 is also pushed out, right?

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.
