Semiconductor WEEK, also known as semiWEEK, is a weekly report from VLSIresearch that provides an overview of results and conclusions from recent reports and data analytic programs. It includes semiStockWEEK covering VLSI's Semiconductor Stock Indices for Semiconductors, Semiconductor Equipment, EDA, Electronic Materials, and the stocks that make up each index. The indices increased this week. Three indices started the year strong, hitting new highs over last year. VLSI's Semiconductor Stock Index is broken out into separate results for IDM, Fabless & Fablite, and Foundry & OSAT. VLSI's Semiconductor Equipment Stock Index is broken out into separate results for WFE, Test, and Assembly.

Topics for each week include:

  • Order activity for semiconductor equipment
  • The Chip Price Performance Index (CPPI): a critical indicator that has predicted every turn in the industry since the late 1990's
  • Wafer Fabrication Production, Capacity, and Utilization
  • Weekly Semiconductor Sales
    • Semiconductor Sales Nowcast for the quarter
    • Semiconductor Weather Report that measures order activity
    • IC Supply-Demand Metrics for measuring shifts in pricing power between semiconductor buyers and sellers for DRAM, NAND, Logic, Auto, Analog & Power
  • Weekly Electronics Pricing Trends
  • Various topical reports from The Chip Insider®
    • Equipment & Emerging Markets
