TAIPEI, July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Second Quarter 2014 Overview[1]:

  • Revenue: NT$35.87 billion (US$1.20 billion)
  • Gross margin: 22.9%; operating margin: 8.1%
  • Foundry capacity utilization rate: 90%
  • Net income attributable to the stockholders of the parent: NT$3.48 billion (US$117 million)
  • Earnings per share: NT$0.28; earnings per ADS: US$0.047

United Microelectronics Corporation (NYSE: UMC; TWSE: 2303) ("UMC" or "The Company"), a leading global semiconductor foundry, today announced its consolidated operating results for the second quarter of 2014.

Revenue was NT$35.87 billion, with gross margin at 22.9% and operating margin at 8.1%. Net income attributable to the stockholders of the parent was NT$3.48 billion, with earnings per ordinary share of NT$0.28.

Mr. Po-Wen Yen, CEO of UMC, said "In the second quarter of 2014, UMC recorded NT$32.57 billion in revenue from the foundry segment, with operating margin from foundry operations of 10.2%. Wafer shipments reached 1.426 million 8-inch equivalent wafers. Our 28nm business represented 1% of revenue, while 40nm accounted for 21%."

CEO Yen added, "Second quarter foundry revenue grew 13.4% sequentially, fueled by strong communication segment demand that lifted capacity utilization to 90%. Market conditions also reflected a turnaround, with rising demand for portable computing devices helping to drive our 28nm shipments. We project continued 28nm revenue contribution growth in 3Q14 as a result of the sustained demand for mobile and tablet computing. We are optimistic in the long term that our 28nm production ramp will strengthen our overall product mix and generate abundant opportunities for UMC to win additional foundry market share. For other technologies, we have strengthened the IP portfolio for our 55nm LP platform to address low power and wireless applications by offering Kilopass' Gusto and Cypress's SONOS embedded flash memories. These enhanced IP solutions will further diversify our manufacturing offerings to fulfill a broader range of specialty technology products on our proven and versatile 55LP platform. Designers in wearable and Internet of Things (IoT) applications have already realized product tape-outs using our 55LP technologies and IP."

CEO Yen continued, "We expect the semiconductor demand strength to continue into the third quarter of 2014. For 28nm momentum, our activities have increased, including IP verifications, customer tape outs on standalone products and product reliability qualifications. These 28nm customer collaborations will provide further traction heading into the second half of 2014. UMC will continue to broaden our customer base and penetrate additional high growth areas to expand customer adoption. We remain confident for the long term, as our sound business strategies, solid engineering execution and strong commitment to customer service will help ensure UMC's future business growth and deliver enhanced profitability to raise shareholder value."

The Transparent Cloud-computing Consortium (abbreviation: T-Cloud Consortium) will conduct research activities into changes in the computing model as a result of collaboration between "device" and "cloud" and the creation of new value and markets through organic data processing High speed and high quality networks, and dramatic improvements in computer processing capabilities, have greatly changed the nature of applications and made the storing and processing of data on the network commonplace.
TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
Predicted by Gartner to add $1.9 trillion to the global economy by 2020, the Internet of Everything (IoE) is based on the idea that devices, systems and services will connect in simple, transparent ways, enabling seamless interactions among devices across brands and sectors. As this vision unfolds, it is clear that no single company can accomplish the level of interoperability required to support the horizontal aspects of the IoE. The AllSeen Alliance, announced in December 2013, was formed with the goal to advance IoE adoption and innovation in the connected home, healthcare, education, aut...
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. Over the summer Gartner released its much anticipated annual Hype Cycle report and the big news is that Internet of Things has now replaced Big Data as the most hyped technology. Indeed, we're hearing more and more about this fascinating new technological paradigm. Every other IT news item seems to be about IoT and its implications on the future of digital busines...

There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other mach...
This Internet of Nouns trend is still in the early stages and many of our already connected gadgets do provide human benefits over the typical infotainment. Internet of Things or IoT. You know, where everyday objects have software, chips, and sensors to capture data and report back. Household items like refrigerators, toilets and thermostats along with clothing, cars and soon, the entire home will be connected. Many of these devices provide actionable data - or just fun entertainment - so people can make decisions about whatever is being monitored. It can also help save lives.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades.

Trick question: What did Thomas Edison do for the lightbulb? He didn’t invent it – working light bulbs existed in laboratories for 80 years before Edison arrived.
