Integrated passive devices are seeing greater use within system-in-package technology and numerous applications, including the Internet of Things. The tiny devices are making their way into automotive electronics, consumer electronics, and health-care products, among other uses.
Power MOSFET’s are a key element of many electronic designs where high power management is needed. They are used in almost any power supply application (for example as switches). However, the fact that they are key, doesn’t mean necessarily that we have a wide number of rad-hard power MOSFET providers.

Revenues fell to $101.2 billion in Q1,;down 12.9% from $116.2 billion in Q118. This represented the largest y-o-y quarterly decrease since the second quarter of 2009. Memory drove the sales to plunge exacerbated by excess inventory and falling demand from key end markets. If memory were excluded from total semiconductor revenue, the market would have declined by ~4.4% on a y-o-y basis.
