Castellano also sees signs that the year 2000 may not be a boon to chip gear revenues (see July 22 story).

The continued erosion of the book-to-bill from a high of 1.3 in March and April to a 1.08 in September illustrates how 1999 may be a false start to a sustained recovery,” he said. The layoffs in 1998 exaggerated the book-to-bill because equipment companies didn't have the manpower to get shipments out the door.”

Castellano sees virtually no capacity expansion going on in the United States except the Atmel Corp. facility in Texas, which the company acquired empty from Hitachi Ltd. (see Nov. 1 story). Japan and Europe are not expanding in the foreseeable future, with growth so far in 1999 largely due to technology purchases, the same trend as 1998. Any growth will come from the Far East,” said Castellano.

Passives and discrete semiconductor maker Vishay Intertechnology Inc. posted 11% revenue growth and a 112.3% net income gain in the third quarter, due largely to a surge in demand for wireless products.

Vishay's exposure to the wireless market, which amounted to about 35% of total sales, contributed to strong results at its Siliconix division and within its capacitor business, noted Merrill Lynch & Co. Inc., New York. Tantalum capacitors, which represent roughly 15% of Vishay's sales, experienced favorable pricing trends, boosting profit margins, according to the firm.

The company's gross margin for the third quarter was 27%, compared with 24.4% a year ago.

Siliconix's power semiconductor sales climbed 44% to $101 million, up from $70 million last year. Vishay owns 80.6% of Siliconix.

The gross margin improvements within Vishay's capacitor and power semiconductor segments helped to offset low margins at its Lite-On and Telefunken units, which manufacture discrete semiconductors, and diodes and optoelectronics, respectively.

Vishay's third-quarter earnings-per-share of 30 cents increased from 14 cents a year ago and exceeded Merrill Lynch's estimate by 3 cents, the firm reported. Vishay earned $25.7 million on sales of $443.7 million for the third quarter ended Sept. 30, compared with net income of $12.1 million and sales of $399.5 million the year before.

Eriksson acknowledged that Microbind has competition in promoting Uddevalla as an investment location. Such investment initiatives are now legion across Europe, and are often supported with tax breaks and grants from local and national governments.

But western Sweden has a number of advantages, Eriksson said. First is access to component workers and an increasing flow of engineers from initiatives such as MC2,” he said.

Second is low turnover of staff. Third is the existence of large industrial partners in the region. And last but not least, relatively low costs.”

Eriksson said business costs in western Sweden are 40 percent lower than in neighboring Germany.

Erling Zandfeld, director of Microbind, stressed the strong entrepreneurial culture here and the growing emphasis on information technology in Sweden thanks to government initiatives to encourage home PC ownership and broadband network access. Zandfeld said about 80 percent of the Swedish population have access to the Internet either at work, school or at home.
