Cataclysmic, no, but one of the fundamental rules of journalism is follow the money. Over the past 8 to 12 months, as DRAM has recovered from oversupply, predictions of a surging post-PC DRAM market have come thick and fast. Mobile DRAM was expected to be all growth, all the time. The reality has played out slightly differently, as the DRAM study just posted shows –with the pricing drops, mobile DRAM has actually lost market share. Depending on which analyst you listen to, PC makers are actually willing to pay a bit more for DRAM to ensure uninterrupted supply. The thing is, market research is always a tricky business, especially when the numbers are from suppliers and not the people writing the checks. that's why these monthly reports from vendors are useful in terms of helping us understand what is actually taking place. We build the picture a little piece at a time.

Seriously? We're going to worry about a downward blip in a fast-growing DRAM maker?  What does anyone make of that?  DRAM isn't going away, and two months do not a trend make.

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.
