    San Jose, Calif. - Global semiconductor sales reached $12.68 billion in November 2002, a 1.3 percent sequential increase from the $12.51 billion in revenue reported in October 2002, says the monthly Global Sales Report (GSR) from the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA). November sales were up 19.6 percent from November 2001 sales of $10.60 billion.
    The SIA's GSR is a three-month moving average of sales activity, and is tabulated by the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) organization, which represents approximately 66 companies.

    Flash and digital signal processors have benefited the most from the strength of the wireless markets, up 6.6 percent and 3.7 percent respectively in November. Wi-Fi has also contributed to the wireless markets' strength, and the computer segment continues to show growth with microprocessors up 0.5 percent and DRAM's increasing by 5.8 percent.

    Geographically, chip sales rose 5.8 percent in the European market and 1.3 percent in Asia Pacific. Semiconductor sales in the Americas declined slightly by 0.8 percent and 0.6 percent in Japan.
