again. Jim, Kevin

two So, orders again, microelectronics for a don’t provide as here because lot standpoint. did we've did isolate to of quarters. we a booking FPD ELA tools quarter take won't we and it the quarter or detail prior I in just But, last from

Jim Ricchiuti

if I from like $XX And then, If you're around going million? the got may, I it to Kevin, if million bigger think $XX to saw Did million in numbers talking quarter. COVID heard I sounded million. a impact correctly, it you I $XX was $XX you say, you in the about correctly,

Kevin Palatnik

That's correct. Yes.

Jim Ricchiuti

Was Europe early hit saw Americas and the was contributed elsewhere, the intent that a that that China bigger there? you or to impact bigger in just that the

Kevin Palatnik

larger The our closed areas, was recognize people wasn't weren't expected, or down. of there. It at what and failed just labs available was we and And and of that completely really OEM scientific in working Jim. than research and/or say, labs I'd some lab to receive we instrumentation people proximity themselves the receiving because they universities, product, in either couldn't the universities shipping

we think I So, bit. a underestimate that did

Jim Ricchiuti

may, back And it. in I the queue. jump last if Got I'll question.

can the as revenue deemphasize feel? you product you impact know kilowatt to But, what us be? business begin sense can you areas that laser been give As would us meaningful. to give that some that necessarily I of a the a not including has segment, fiber

Kevin Palatnik

level into where want detail to on analyzing invest call here. of out going we get that forward. the the want to Jim, of different figure pieces We're to I still business don't

for very terms in more little we that be commodity of once a our business we was we've think, But, discussed in have data, past, small contribution. then can I its the the fiber forthcoming. bit as

Jim Ricchiuti

Operator

Brian go come will question with next Lee Goldman Please ahead. Our Sachs. from

Brian Lee

Andy, Hey, appreciate to trajectory you the just that for welcome, had in had I taking ELA comment together. guys. quarter. first Thanks the recognition. the of I the looking around question I Kevin working order and, questions in other forward revenue guess was

for six So, a orders. that months. you're having lead row, some where times you've while makes been that in are the about seeing a And X ELA

have of at six-month from saw past? I range would ELA QX be orders for a in they assuming guess that then, couple times haven't, a would when cycle guidance here. you having changed provided to it high-margin two to from started, quarters kind But lead ELA seem So, the in then, that tools ago by you've light revenue and margin there. start bit the questions some One, all And see seems the two, tools the definitely in QX.

I'm has we shipment should anything on here? timing be the just that time, rec lead changed and rev So, of aware trajectory of sort wondering,

Kevin Palatnik

Yes. Thanks, again. Brian, Kevin

a So, from last four we have did a taken And X we months. orders that time perspective, over it's say actually. the lead of quarters minimum

have and year, guidance into trajectory So, look just we we But should such, of is to as so. think quarter, for COVID half June be quarter that we the things COVID going quarter on forward. right second slightly flat But, the of for or it back with or given a delaying next down. and as

Brian Lee

are And helpful. was where customers those you delays a maybe China little in with materialized the then parts China that's directly of say, the or to reason which where have you first it you customer-centric it's indirect. crisis COVID other across Because is I board? had impact or more obviously some being ask Wuhan this situated customers No, respect mix, in your peripheral in Okay. fairly and would

concentrated board you in delays impact? the manufacturers the the So, being of have seeing level handful across is more are that broad or it the of pretty direct

Kevin Palatnik

Thanks, Yes. Brian.

You're right.

down or major China our customers shut customers, as CSOT, three Wuhan know, two to of Wuhan. you months. Star key And in our is for One one of

customers of the of shutdown, of CSOT a based, it's So, you would were about expect a larger delay Wuhan. by primarily the customers. But, being a couple There couple given geography I'd quarter. say, there, a meaning a

Brian Lee

the customer different and in COVID back the calendar the comment like across great. Can How downtick kind then, QX you've service parts to it in one China And seeing of It crisis. base? seems on here And Obviously, a because utilization maybe China. then And impact we mentioned you of haven't Okay. revenues seen pass on. had think $XXX a last starting how parts your then, other see That's of about moving and through service seeing on rates? the coming should to world utilization But, we translating of you're China? year? I'll revenue you're a QX of quarter in are particularly through recovering, in quickly while. we they sub where you that million the in are in rates

So, is that kind of a low move year? point? And you the just as wondering how quick through that metric could recover of rest the

Kevin Palatnik

Yes.

So, get information their that improving. them. say on the can't customers certainly I it seems talk for wouldn’t that’s call. specific want yields. I are Brian, Suffice about it mean, like into just it it feels to proprietary -- and yields anecdotally, I to

manufacturer improving to on back Chinese believe said year. ship come XX that's large OLED I to last a has was million they and this year XX expect the X of compared of million out yields. One displays what that to probably

that prepared services terms million, In in couldn't and field remarks, did whereabouts. and us equipment, go that China service by I we have of into service [ph] million as $XX just $XX mentioned impacted or revenue, engineers

in Given I expect would QX. the some that or reopened, part reopened most for China's rebound

look we as was impacted into As Korea Korea, well.

QX. a won't probably we full in we'll snapback see see So, but improvement

Kevin Palatnik

in there. to no comes OLED, there's it story change When

We continue the front to OLED in us. see of ramp

that data screens. we've albeit, laptops gotten have XX the recently, In there's at fact, OLED different high end

mobile we're into laptops. progress OLED from So, seeing

will tablets next. We expect be

So, laptops, have wave will, our that And three, OLED handsets, and as one tablets, by very path, currently. in laptop all. of mobile if many wave we're it in encouraged terms manufacturers theory, and no being that see wave you computing at two automotive, we change to

Larry Solow

Right.

a question like great production itself. your performance, -- mentioned post business at picture how been But, to on rebound. lower even submarkets piece biggest It’s It’s the the in prepared you next then, months. the hasn’t COVID-XX, still were. obviously remarks, goes, economy by a many than Okay. be just a anybody’s realize production goes we where global processing, XX that much level piece you another lackluster it estimate assume of environment, and with materials of several certainly industrial And quarters I in could well last improve fluctuating. guys And there. second there down are bigger will to industrial how I over bigger XX

Andy Mattes

have that will generating. margins, the one goes Great approach and ILS the the when comes Good invent automatically We it philosophy, and the to especially type This for And our room for loading. the that margin our to positive back our more on impact on house systems we our profile to reuse improvement, market and our will we apply customers, often our we that way tools of when and it of to the do in Transformation. be comes a factory side see

by you question the issues Just had chain. impacted a because Were any supply of chain supply virus? about

Kevin Palatnik

supply very us XX our impact. enough either beyond. a ahead QX, all to We suppliers hand world, of top through with sure that they work on supply certainly or very, and make From chain, the supply QX had we bought minimal around

are good shape in So, we there.

Mark Miller

I to lasers, for an of way? the that's starting type microvias, of possible is XG playing up steam mentioned is assume require becoming that you. transition, or smaller because pick in another that opportunity and is You higher XG new will density silicon

Kevin Palatnik

the microvias, little requires with the do also bit has is content right, in more power. itself. put boards, and on antenna to it to the more a only The more bulky but Not antenna

if more you will. And is more because than And in much more so, because need thinner the battery its systems pack OLED so battery, of LCD, you can thinness.

of of contributing a there's Company. couple to XG in the benefits So, things to terms

front than a but it's we're us. more of a us terms behind what bit are seeing pickup, in still of we little In of seeing,
