1. APPLE SUPPLIERS TO MAKE APPLE WATCH AND MACBOOK IN VIETNAM

Apple Inc's suppliers are in talks to produce Apple Watch and MacBook in Vietnam for the first time. Apple has asked suppliers to set up a test production line in Vietnam for the MacBook, the report said, adding that progress in moving mass production to the country has been slow partly due to pandemic-related disruptions but also because notebook computer production involves a larger supply chain.

2. U.S. RESTRICTIONS ON CHIP SOFTWARE EXPORTS COULD BITE IN THE LONG TERM

Electronic design automation (EDA) is a category of tools that includes software and hardware that can assist engineers in creating and testing new chip designs. The gate-all-around (GAA) structure is a next-generation technology that enables the manufacture of chips with transistors of 3 nanometers or less, which are more powerful and efficient than their larger predecessors. The export restrictions won’t have an immediate impact on the business of China’s chipmakers and designers, as no mainland firms are currently capable of designing or producing such advanced chips.

3. AUTOMOTIVE AND INDUSTRIAL CHIP SUPPLY REMAINS TIGHT

Only 5-10% of fab capacity in the fourth quarter will be affected by weak consumer electronics orders. But industrial chip orders will quickly fill the capacity gap left by foundries for PC and other consumer chip customers. The supply of automotive chips including MCUs and IGBTs is severely tight, and the supply of industrial-grade MCUs and other ICs is also still tight, prompting related chip suppliers to compete for more available capacity in the fourth quarter.
