Keywords:IC supply chain  IC units  IC ASPs  IC billings 

VLSI Research Inc.'s latest Semiconductor Analytics report indicates a stable IC supply chain even after the devastating Japan earthquake with no IC shortages during the week ended March 25, or two weeks after the quake.

Although IC units increased 43 per cent during the week, a disrupted supply chain caused ASPs to drop, the report added.

Overall, IC billings were Rs.28,971.33 crore ($6.37 billion) in the period, down 2 per cent from the previous week, but up 22 per cent from the same period a year ago, according to the report.

ASPs were Rs.66.86 ($1.47) in the period, down 3 per cent from the previous week, but up 9 per cent from a year ago.

IC units were 433 crore in the period, up 1 per cent from the previous week and up 12 per cent from a year ago, according to the report.

Here are other data points in the period from the report:

* Electronics sales activity was up for the fourth week in a row.

* The strongest segments were IT, auto and industrial while the weakest were consumer and computer.

* Mobile handset prices were weak, but smartphones were holding steady.
