28nm Moves to Mass Production with Increasing Momentum in 2H14

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."

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

Through WebRTC, audio and video communications are being embedded more easily than ever into applications, helping carriers, enterprises and independent software vendors deliver greater functionality to their end users. With today’s business world increasingly focused on outcomes, users’ growing calls for ease of use, and businesses craving smarter, tighter integration, what’s the next step in delivering a richer, more immersive experience? That richer, more fully integrated experience comes about through a Communications Platform as a Service which allows for messaging, screen sharing, video...
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
As more and more data is generated from a variety of connected devices, the need to get insights from this data and predict future behavior and trends is increasingly essential for businesses. Real-time stream processing is needed in a variety of different industries such as Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Automobile, Finance, Online Retail, Smart Grids, and Healthcare. Azure Stream Analytics is a fully managed distributed stream computation service that provides low latency, scalable processing of streaming data in the cloud with an enterprise grade SLA. It features built-in integration with Azur...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks. The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of IoT applications and projects. Business operations, IT, and data scientists need advanced analytics t...

Akana developed the Healthcare Solution in response to healthcare businesses that want to increase electronic, multi-device access to health records while reducing operating costs and complying with government regulations.
For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...
The Internet of Everything (IoE) brings together people, process, data and things to make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before – transforming information into knowledge and knowledge into wisdom. IoE creates new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented opportunities to improve business and government operations, decision making and mission support capabilities.
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation?
