Topics discussed in the latest reports include:

  • Is Intel's announcement that it has landed Altera as a fabrication customer a significant positive for Intel? 
  • How does Intel's announcement impact the competitive environment between Altera and its primary competitor, Xilinx? 
  • What has changed during the past two years in the Intel business model that makes it more important than ever for contract semiconductor fabricators like TSMC to keep pace with fabrication technology? 
  • Why might TSMC find it difficult to keep up with the capital investment necessary to stay within one fabrication node of Intel? 
  • With EZchip poised to end its partnership with Marvell, might EZchip look to team up with Intel? What evidence suggests this announcement may come in the next few months?

Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 233% since its inception versus 68% for the S&P 500.
