Chip sales up and Wii does well

RESEARCH ANALYST Bruce Diesen said in a report for Carnegie that March was good for many semiconductor sectors worldwide, with handset ICs and microprocessors doing particularly well.

Diesen said the three month average of world semi sales rose to $21.1 billion compared to an expected $20.7 billion in March. Average selling prices for PC chips rose – which must have been reflected in Intel’s recent results. There was “exceptional strength” in Nintendo Wii chips, said Diesen, but wireline and wireless infrastructures weakened.

Handset chip sales rose by around five and a half per cent year on year in dollar terms. ♣
