    Last Week in the Semiconductor Market:
    Semiconductor sales turned up, holding to an 11-week run of double-digit gains over last year. W/Q growth was slightly negative. Focusing on NAND, Y/Y growth MA’s have improved significantly from March lows and are in solid double-digit territory halfway through the quarter. Sales are running at healthy levels and are not over-saturated
    Semi Market results from last week:
    • Semiconductor Weather1 Report: The IC weather was cooler, with a 1?F slide for the week.
    • Wafer Fab Production Levels: IC Wafer Fab Production levels rose.
    • IC Supply-Demand2 Metrics: VLSI’s IC Supply/Demand indices’ Tight conditions held.
    • Electronics Prices Electronics’ Prices were down again.

    Strategy and Tactics: Government Semiconductor Support Escalation.

    Government Support Escalation: They say that a frog in hot water will jump out. But a frog in water where the temperature is slowly being elevated will sit there and cook. The history of government support of semiconductors is a story of both. The water was slowly being elevated in the 1990s and 2010s. Then in 2021, the burner was turned up to high on the induction cooktop of the semiconductor shortage.

    Maxim: A sales group should forecast orders, not sales. It is a general principle that for the greatest accuracy you should have people forecast results for what they are closest..

    People: Yan Borodovsky discusses what was happening in 2007 with DFM and Com-putational Lithography at Intel in this historic interview series. Intel had made quite a splash with its announcement that it had developed a new form of computational lithography. At the time, Dr. Borodovsky was a Senior Intel Fellow and Director of Advanced Lithography there. In the first video, he describes the technology. In the second, he demonstrates how it works. In the third, details how innovation really happens at companies like Intel.challenges. At the same time, no leader can be great without great followers. The real question is, what did these leaders set out to accomplish, did they achieve their goals, and what problems did they leave for each that followed them.
    People: Craig Barrett discusses how Intel turned manufacturing into the powerhouse it is today, in the first of this series with Dr. Barrett from 2006. He describes the origins of manufacturing lore such as Copy Exactly, Intel U, and refsnart in this interview. Then he also discusses the future of American competitiveness and the importance of math and science. At the time, he was Chairman of Intel.
