Semiconductor sales now down

20 September, 2001

Worldwide semiconductor sales may decrease 34% in 2001 after terrorist attacks stalled shipments last week and may hurt consumer purchases, market researcher IC Insights, said. This follows last weeks report that sales would increase in 2001.

Monolithic ICs

11 September, 2001 | Supplied by: Soanar Limited

A series of MOS monolithic integrated circuits (MOSMICs) that will allow designers to upgrade the performance of UHF and VHF tuners at no additional cost has been announced by Vishay Intertechnology. Serving as a low-noise RF input stage, the 'X' devices provide improved automatic gain control and cross modulation behaviour compared with previous-generation MOSMICs.
