payments from key customers, or the timing of customer inventory
adjustments; the availability and pricing of third-party semiconductor
foundry, assembly and test capacity, raw materials and supplier
components; changes in laws, regulations and/or policies that could
adversely affect either (i) the economy and our customers’ demand for
our products or (ii) the financial markets and our ability to raise
capital; our ability to develop, manufacture and market innovative
products in a highly price competitive and rapidly changing
technological environment; economic, social, military and geo-political
conditions in the countries in which we, our customers or our suppliers

transportation networks and fluctuations in foreign currency exchange
rates; fluctuations in our manufacturing yields due to our complex and
specialized manufacturing processes; delays or disruptions in production
due to equipment maintenance, repairs and/or upgrades; our reliance on
several key customers for a large percentage of our sales; fluctuations
in the manufacturing yields of our third-party semiconductor foundries
and other problems or delays in the fabrication, assembly, testing or
delivery of our products; our ability to timely and accurately predict
