ability, as well as the ability of our customers, to manage inventory; losses
or curtailments of purchases or 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, including the
possibility of expiring tax cuts combined with mandatory reductions in federal
spending, in the United States that could adversely affect either (i) the
economy and our customers’ demand for our products or (ii) the financial

including security and health risks, possible disruptions in 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 market requirements and evolving industry standards, and to
identify opportunities in new markets; uncertainties of litigation, including
potential disputes over intellectual property infringement and rights, as well
