  1. How the mighty fall, not long ago Nokia was in the top spot. Nokia have gone and are taking ST down with them.

  2. What about chips made in house? I.e. the samsung tally, does it include the chips that the tv division buys from the lsi division, or is it only the chips they buy from outside suppliers?

  3. Semiconductor-based electronic components include transistors, solar cells, many kinds of diodes including the light-emitting diode (LED), the silicon controlled rectifier, photo-diodes, and digital and analog integrated circuits.

  4. Nice posting David.
    Out of curiosity, what kind of chips that get counted?
