Katherine Blye

with please will review question-and-answer instructions our the participants. Thank you, Ravi. Operator, you


Thank from And the Fargo. first of line comes Instructions] your from question you. Wells [Operator Mobley Gary

open. Your line now is

Gary Mobley

with my asking wanted about extend me I to start congratulations margin. let And calendar question. gross strong my by on year. taking finish for out Thanks a

sort December can gross reported of us, the you're through job you But the relative wondering expecting us was in may that obviously your did variance you in Paul, quarter and I improvement. of have And limitations of and what a how the you How sort amendments walking forcing out with quarter? I down margin and guide for So Polar pretty break good the UMC? if be follow-up. to more an you quarter that then March gross impact a purchase than with to into played the have overall in December take capacity margin

Paul Walsh

valve, Polar. we to mix towards Gary. - Yes, margin a you fortunate foundry rely in on Thanks, quarters, safety as if in indicated we're But Polar. was to long for able the ourselves committed heavier quarter of we've the be will. at Sure. drivers a we'll other wafers actually term, have partners well. as from And UMC that as with the and that gross of mix coming to to expand consider one continuing the a We

think I through. in that near-term growth. something that can impede don't So, have it's work limitations any We capacity we us necessarily will our

about good So, it. we pretty feel

Gary Mobley


follow-up at some the your and wanted in about update a related transition of qualification guys I As ask there? TSMC. to sort of your you topic, Could give us eventual to you manufacturing

Ravi Vig

So take Paul, I'll that.

Paul Walsh


Ravi Vig

ongoing. activity So has TSMC our been

We given have our in activity cycles it next This 'XX, this ramp we expected, automotive, FY fiscal getting fiscal particular in second we supply-demand expect the half, that into rate. long to in had projected year qualification as expect we in that revenue and stock to is up from have 'XX. the to wafers


Next Lipacis from is Jefferies. with Mark question

open. now is line Your

Mark Lipacis

question So backlog. first the on

doesn't profile out I'm about went up backlog hoping backlog -- backlog, do help it's lower about, and as the could days of you midpoint. -- there's is a two instead growth you can strong just extent the X% has I not of sequential that growth to a And you're me the -- help quarter? first changed. wondering what how like guiding -- reconciling then you and the for me backlog your talk growth outlook? of I'm And like it that the into June the Thanks. backlog in the quarter, you at difference there's Paul, can Maybe think up from obvious the sounds suppliers, goes that the from like just quarters XX lot a and extent into visibility have that backlog ago, about reconcile lot. if So not to constraints

Paul Walsh

Thank backlog. we good very you, Mark. into our Yes, in visibility have ordinary times,

excellent We visibility seen. have what like has we've accelerated, continue into has the to everyone Certainly, seen. demand

get visibility, and good So, but visibility in gives as the the we have well. into June current it us confidence great quarter certainly, quarter, we

gives confidence, with it lot helps think it of I a and our forward. So, certainly planning us going

Mark Lipacis

demand double through once all environments cycles Okay. them? Great. visibility or the that? Can you've times sense And building pretty it That's about the a a all get way you ordering out start you into when what have you manage to high. inventory, do how you give concerned where like are when double visibility safety I a risk of kind us to of helpful. about do and into That's this, had. people of and the production kind end lot Do there? of assess the And inventories line? products building ship you you get ordering worrying up Does stocks point you have before, before your been how get you of

Paul Walsh

our we do for into Well, And have have visibility week. inventories alluded we've I every lean. our call, and The backlog discipline earlier quite And is in in the time. we Sure. is ordering long been the we visibility we that most those channel. a demand to monitor as distribution a just something great had patterns have that's patterns, mean, are

that level any want would And channel? I but ask Ravi -- of certainly -- to that beyond probably customers, visibility I see different. it's if the shed you non-distribution color what so the into -- different there we I from that on a would think is from for and

Ravi Vig


the end our the of a of is of substantial What to said, there we backlog, monitoring trying monitor -- their are but customer, we rates given that end production Paul we've been point. this increasing. restocking have know customers, that customer the communication with our at and acceleration demand -- on signals. we rapid customers. is as constant the many have substantial the is been think, also I been There know We pull do in

I is could we backlog of like a this, actually all it do of times cycles. But through have getting ahead semiconductor this, think we've in risks shipments the been So, like of as our times And we really in the blend. themselves. extract that

this are and in that ahead we terms to making best their not our sure of getting customers carefully, very very order So cautious the ability of in that monitor we patterns. are


Your from of next is question Curtis Blayne Barclays.

Your line open. now is

Blayne Curtis

curious, margins Just kind and Inventories inventories. came a assuming kind of I'm of -- obviously, down, headwind to gross it's some gross you're obviously, trying manage it's to Polar, mixtures margin.

you're of little the quarter? with managing get a would March just And in I'm bit the levels, more to -- of if you but you're back And kind color Polar little then a inventories come So the just this curious us about little how the kind the normalized could And better seeing you improvement thinking get timing you back more when just you off? just up? help you can more then as if could trajectory, give that see? could, some to some mix when of on allocations granularity a

Paul Walsh

take I'll Blayne, that. Sure.

down. surprise So inventory. focused acceleration yes, we wasn't on appropriate demand levels came ensuring the inventory that and have It very revenue. in the a We're given really of

might Polar, that a when to to which strategy to from goal environment, to need at wind little alluded tailwind down, beyond. quarter margin as it's both able moment may would as to being And we off sustainable happen both look fact, long-term long a the Long Polar, but a continue with the create for because long-term from our just term, on at we strategic and with roll -- Polar so, March perspective in unclear and anything of the also UMC, we would a but And is it's a when strategic we the continue to demand significant to. -- the term. manage not to capacity wind goal fill that of gross

Blayne Curtis

the I Photonics a you almost was under of actually I last And Okay. two little do it's $X small a want part to the -- but quarters, million. know then business, ask

coming it bit outlook? So versus least seems in any just of what on drivers -- at segment, had. of and I seems comments it's better Photonics what it's better tracking any know bit than it's I had the but like I it a like kind a small a

Ravi Vig


I think phase. at Photonics really it's is this where, point, in a segment a reinvestment

focused more applicable to are on and that we be to LIDAR. re-architecting product development automotive So, business

As from. business come to our metrics we front. automotive but for revenue in have products progressing is the real on engagements of real next in past, product over going come we which down and we've small automotive terms this design our real focus expect start LIDAR, said quarters. particular releases the revenue, the and to Yes, will to customer of in our is wins And the couple


John from next Suisse. question of your And Pitzer Credit

Your line is now open.

John Pitzer

understand Polar? Or just was from the third solid incremental Street in quarter of make reported, where couldn't it Congratulations closure? most I where from that quarter? going you the on go And recognize relative delta was you bps on results. why by like being things fiscal gross the is the versus the all if that's margins to Paul, I to driven sure. that's costs wanted back this it, and the revisit XX December to just

Paul Walsh

what like Basically, XX%. guidance or I entered towards that, when as John. we bps question, amount guidance of think the of Good I as part was XX and having we revenue guiding Without characterize the to November. quarter, thereabouts was of range, back would I range to it anticipate this XX XX our

-- wind than production XXs. close more can't adjustment to said, won't it's essentially don't viewed include Thailand complete being going XX.X%, That reason the we we with AMTC, that forma And pro facility the a down So quite non-GAAP have mean, much as in really because it really were phase, I with we adjustment. a we with the the rather forward. more and as

John Pitzer

fourth the gross closure. Thailand from includes fiscal margin the benefit quarter the effectively, So guidance

Paul Walsh

of exactly. Yes, little in. in see a but bit are, way and know we how phase, That's should should We We're things Yes. the some that. be ramp-up, benefit. those there's wind seeing you down the

John Pitzer

Ravi. for question second my then And

much side, this that shutter up, is inventory? think talked your things structurally the are auto both importantly, change being half I how is you kind will guys the and And because perhaps forced that auto tells I'm restocking. cars. remember about do do I'm you pricing you of but cost curious, capacity And they being think of major your first are important right side the you rising time on are, vis-à-vis cyclically structurally can to just how just more now? think more curious, OEMs kind moving to kind Just tight view auto think this equation of about where especially of strength they the how semiconductors, strong supply which get inventory? building can't you the hold given more how ships of will cost I

Ravi Vig


So, extraordinarily seeing the quarters. tightening we're the COVID already And belt in levels. think of the down impact part buckles low think and of the I the the of automotive I to chain got inventories supply

I think this started in was a trend actually prior that the year.

depleted supply and where chain. semi-supply large the or as declining. into COVID it quarters couple critical stated seeing to of visibilities we with something, And we're which So, this rebound unusual is the inventory forecasted we We're has recovery that with inventory more, automotive. the levels, And completely which speak. we're and year quite through no backlog a recovery, continued maybe been chain, trends low came the depleting out extraordinarily vehicles, what change is I as the our this And kept this you've of we more has us. are quarters, seeing or for one semis becoming go operation more seeing rightly sometimes the think and now, in

part recognizing they automotive there customers, customers cellular address to bigger automotive us. you increasing think the of automotive are of our was are against giving I supply this see created the or But competing what part So, they -- I'm by what the in sorry, your ending demand that I doesn't think are the on apply trends XG. processors the are high second and is end think up I question? this. And something is from the shortfall going trying their restocking. us visibility. is to And It where the by really

John Pitzer

trying that? can cover with increases? take incremental Sort Can relations? you right of How philosophy pricing long-term cost pricing it customer are your beyond costs up manage you take up now, to to you

Ravi Vig


don't we typically, we're purchasing a or commodity customers. our means and What we that transactional our both suppliers company, either are commoditize selling. with not not or with our is So, that

that we that long-term at whether in have agreements are help us of suppliers we everybody of -- are will pricing, suppliers pricing. of with the that And companies our on a critical control, that do lot we constraints we customers our other with situations agreements But this customers which with have our So, least there's look conversations out occur seeing. hand, on have expect our we terms at. with also

to now, fashion limited We addressing a continue market. in we pricing while right are the monitor

the We continue chain and supply chain supply to continue the cost. to monitor monitor

is So, conversation some a yes, it our with that our with having customers, we're customers. of

Srinivas Pajjuri

design back wins. your And to a public want comment being to I about go congrats on solid and Ravi, just company execution.

little you about I think And a XX% to said ICE your you digits, surprising is are me. design up double mentioned bit is or business your that so. up which also news

designs? So think improving you could and if winning with you talk a give if about ICE about versus the on were for margins gross new and xEV and I these more you -- pipeline these said And you're are products. color bit optimistic ADAS, win in the where also, design us past, the

some of are design impactful. these And wins

ADAS particular ICE so actually this emerging to and Typically, higher similar more revenue and accelerating -- than that and and which is xEV is starting they have will having.
