Intersil reports solid 2Q results

Intersil reports that revenue for the second quarter was $144.8 million, an increase of 10% sequentially and a decrease of 11% year over year.
Intersil's industrial and infrastructure revenue grew quarter-on-quarter by more than 10%, due primarily to strong demand for products in automotive, industrial and aerospace markets. Consumer revenue recovered during the quarter, increasing 25% sequentially and reflecting improved demand for products sold into handsets, tablets and gaming consoles. Computing revenue was down as expected as PC market conditions remained challenging.

The breakdown by end market was as follows:
