Reading time ( words)

North America-based manufacturers of semiconductor equipment posted $1.38 billion in orders worldwide in March 2016 (three-month average basis) and a book-to-bill ratio of 1.15, according to the March Equipment Market Data Subscription (EMDS) Book-to-Bill Report published today by SEMI.  A book-to-bill of 1.15 means that $115 worth of orders were received for every $100 of product billed for the month.

SEMI reports that the three-month average of worldwide bookings in March 2016 was $1.38 billion. The bookings figure is 9.4 percent higher than the final February 2016 level of $1.26 billion, and is 0.9 percent lower than the March 2015 order level of $1.39 billion.

The three-month average of worldwide billings in March 2016 was $1.20 billion. The billings figure is 0.5 percent lower than the final February 2016 level of $1.20 billion, and is 5.3 percent lower than the March 2015 billings level of $1.27 billion.

"Order activity remains steady and is on par with both the previous quarter and one year ago,” said Denny McGuirk, president and CEO of SEMI. “3D NAND and advanced logic are the key drivers for investments.”

The SEMI book-to-bill is a ratio of three-month moving averages of worldwide bookings and billings for North American-based semiconductor equipment manufacturers. Billings and bookings figures are in millions of U.S. dollars.

NASA's SOHO Celebrates 20 Years of Space-based Science

12/01/2015 | NASA
After 20 years in space, ESA and NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, or SOHO, is still going strong. Originally launched in 1995 to study the sun and its influence out to the very edges of the solar system, SOHO revolutionized this field of science, known as heliophysics, providing the basis for nearly 5,000 scientific papers. SOHO also found an unexpected role as the greatest comet hunter of all time—reaching 3,000 comet discoveries in September 2015.
