Let’s see how things have shaped up for Microchip prior to this announcement:
Factors to Consider
Microchip is riding on consistent strength in its analog and microcontroller businesses. The company is expected to have gained from the dominance of its 8, 16 and 32-bit microcontrollers in fiscal second quarter.
The company’s fiscal second-quarter results are likely to reflect gains from demand recovery across its global business environment, particularly in automotive, industrial and consumer end-markets, on easing of lockdowns and relaxation of shelter-in-place guidelines.
Improving demand across office equipment and communication infrastructures, courtesy of requirement for cloud-computing solutions, besides a booming PC market amid the coronavirus crisis-led work-from-home wave, bodes well.
Strong demand for Microchip’s Power over Ethernet (PoE) to USB-C adapter, as well as for META-DX1 suite of Ethernet products, may have driven microcontrollers’ fiscal second-quarter performance.
However, severe supply-chain constraint is expected to have hurt top-line growth in the to-be-reported quarter.
