Quoting Management: “Second quarter revenue was at the high-end of our guidance primarily due to improvements in the IMM and communications markets,” said Scott Howarth, ISSI’s President and CEO. “During the quarter, we gained traction with large industrial customers, predominately in Europe, where we continue to win new designs. Additionally, our communications revenue improved slightly in the quarter, reflecting improvements in U.S. and China specifically related to LTE basestation implementation. We continued to gain momentum with our RLDRAM® memory products and have also secured large design win opportunities with a major U.S. communications and networking company. Although automotive revenue was flat sequentially, our year-over-year growth in this market demonstrates the ongoing trend toward increased semiconductor content not only in high-end cars, but also lower cost vehicles. Based on our increasing design activity and share gains, we expect this market will remain a strong growth driver for our business.”
