Taiwan's chipmakers failed to see the anticipated rise in sales last month.

TSMC sales slipped to NT$8.515 billion ($240 million), slightly lower than May's NT$8.55 billion, Taiwan's Commercial Times reports, via Asiabiztech.

The figure represents a 29 per cent drop compared to June 2000 for TSMC, which had hoped sales would rise slightly in June.

United Microelectronics Corp reported sales of NT$4.24 billion ($120 million) for June, down 14.3 per cent on May, and half of the figure of June 2000.

Other Taiwanese chipmakers also saw revenues fall between 15 per cent and 30 per cent from May to June. These included Winbond, with sales of NT$1.7 billion (, Nanya Technology, NT$600 million, and Vanguard, NT$665 million.

Regarding Q3, opinion was divided: UMC said sales may worsen, while TSMC said it expected to see them pick up. ®
