Vivek Arya

QX you almost that is I sales are end unit also. which semiconductor Because automotive you shipping it's at Thank And you because hoping quality issues. there year, days mentioned you I was visibility market shipping that confidence and of impact you a and from auto demand. sync in inventory had just confidence how for in Kurt, of customers. of taking OEMs is at could your the last consistent, kitting give and there the I delta demand does question out when was in of signals Tier this probably my believe about kind X auto of XX-point with you're expand that your question. and the on the I that. automotive to line there look production, getting and

you with that So OEMs. line you're in right, just of shipping just over and is the among shipping the flux demand, that confidence you're Tier giving given your Xs what not and state

Kurt Sievers

I we that very can tell also watch question, that Vivek. Yes, mean you personal good morning, And experience. I Indeed, from continued carefully. very

to we week product to of so need to industrial if that automotive have we and week kitting they is back and only on the parts, this that there it to continue week somebody short redirecting here good we customers. and are and now that later time point escalation falling actually then with my not, in ask to I go they redirect spend is work So especially calls, a a actually It because part places else. other a few in which customers maybe use the

So I extremely customers' we the the customers. production close to are of our pulse customers and think of our

now Tier we this the a at a the are demand. triangular the over that and very actually actually So all barely but is why meeting the with high we is relationship shipping OEMs, have confidence I which have say I Xs supply very, reduction seen Vivek in would a that in something to for the from it only from this X% of semiconductors again. is to down think for due forecast good IHS X.X%, the halved. SAAR forecast of so not came quarter year, last A to part now like almost the I X%

these service demand what all above is we modulations of anyway. can So terms of possible in there see you actually

massive content increase, same automotive, And the comes and thanks have SAAR holes the production the this premium From to day we a which penetration why is again out accelerated to into fill it to you say, fight shipments also bigger demand. that's meet contextual striking and vehicles. semi to of earlier, because day still So had delta xEVs. we try between a points I the, perspective in, and actually mention back to mentioned mentioned

this levels premium looked find already. of vehicles content, put And plus actually the levels one similar now of that So car about is has what double ICE XXXX pre semiconductor you basket we you had it did in whole And we turmoil. because that XX% the it's of in the xEVS. combination from is XXXX or global along if at production we

inventory very an of there our much in portion which certainly to increase be is check, continues would the share planning. And be a very there this There to Then continue level NXP-specific which accelerating situation only the So are overall finally, functional. supply strong across with our I keep dysfunctional, content say, extended pricing. factor. is gains, inventory I is thing low, say to actually the to can is be the means so across chain still too the chain totally it it whole extended automotive supply And dysfunctional. continues

Stacy Rasgon

my Hi, guys. for taking questions. Thanks

So think there Are you talked or supply into one, second supply my the sequentially second you trend first about trend improves. your half? like prioritizing particular half demand any where the that markets, like thinking just be you're markets worse? the supply about we kind spread you should revenues ramping end getting is of better Are trends end seeing? as how end any given market and in across Like incrementally

Kurt Sievers

think Stacy, short across are supply. we Hi, board continuously I the of

have two, So our applies revenue in When the gaps year that is the of qualify of segments. us. automotive, for case ahead between in continued see function If also and and of probably growth I it all I through those year, Stacy. we the speak supply situation is a say then this revenue And two we worst of indeed becoming that about least would largely available, I gradual a increase longer-term to say demand. biggest have would this in have supply and I continue to those so to four the that industrial at

more up. et supply cetera. external, a earlier, going the different of much supply supply question closer we it's discussed is to comes those in it year we So through as markets. it from coming what much is from up, where perspective. a signal different factories. something four are the ramping is that -- pattern the demand foundry is It's It isn't demand And internal It this

each quarter. and pretty it's it's not So also a the -- same

of demand qualify So year supply under I revenue, gradual perspective still all our cannot the revenue signal demand through the from is the anyway. by growth a segment the because

Stacy Rasgon

you. thank Thank you,

to want question. the less same my you're impact X% maybe in I what and COVID revisit from time, the quarter I heard So or prior But to situation, you a at China next like China. for calling said follow-up, overall

Why supply. You're versus demand maybe have you competitor know do like actually your not that revenues you was along nature, of the also I on demand were differences you that's to channel an a along those than of buffer be calling bigger lines revenue obviously the of the your you're are what that amount about How in in think demand region. that are be one but both so of driving talked the anything see seeing a seeing for that related. it of is I But differences not they terms of are? going into of XX% in you're bigger there in more others think them XX%. -- going into seeing think you Or lines could think your impact their some can issues, logistics issues is have you just the China? industry going given some just and Is actually of the you China. what

Kurt Sievers

strategies obviously, just situations and speculate cannot. I really specific one of speculate peers. or cannot don't about the Stacy, and want of to I more our

quarter this that rigor guide confidently we assure of very can sit lot been for environment. and for how put this I us obviously you However, of assessing because important safely it's this a attention and into to particular in a to lot question turmoiled understand

-- is customer situations with we the really very it order this do has have on to. books the this is we and particular talk to that with near Given patterns term, it

of a So I there, much the we bottom chapters this strategic know what because not competitors really analysis from figure about hold that policies And supply what weeks feel the we next line the I can't demand.
