In its recently released ''Semiconductor Analytics'' report, VLSI Research Inc. declared a soft week for chips. According to the research firm, the week ended April 8 saw IC billings of only $5.01 billion, which is 7 percent less than that of the previous week but is 13 percent higher than last year's figure.

Chip ASPs were $1.31 in the period, down 5 percent from the previous week, but flat from a year ago, according to the report.

IC units were 3.82 billion in the period, down 2 percent from the previous week and up 13 percent from a year ago, the report said.

Semiconductor sales and design activity also trended up during that week. Foundry production eased, as capacity grew. Globalfoundries appeared to be ''closing on TSMC.''

Meanwhile, memory soared, but SoC processor dipped as ARM took a ''hit.'' The auto and industrial segments also took a fall.
