Backlog

        We generally do not obtain firm, long-term commitments from our customers. Instead, our procurement of inventory and our volume manufacturing activities are based primarily on forecasts provided from our customers. This enables us to minimize the time lapse between receipt of a customer's order and delivery of product to the customer. OEM customers typically do not make firm orders for the delivery of products more than thirty to ninety days in advance. Additionally, customers may cancel or postpone scheduled deliveries, generally without significant penalty. Therefore, we do not believe that the backlog of expected product sales covered by firm orders is a meaningful measure of future sales.

Backlog

        We generally do not obtain firm, long-term commitments from our customers. Instead, our procurement of inventory and our volume manufacturing activities are based primarily on forecasts provided by our customers. This enables us to minimize the time lapse between receipt of a customer's order and delivery of product to the customer. For certain of our products, the typical cycle-time from receipt of customer order to shipment of final product is one to three days. For other products, OEM customers typically do not make firm orders for delivery of products more than thirty to ninety days in advance. Additionally, customers may cancel or postpone scheduled deliveries, generally without significant penalty. Therefore, we do not believe that the backlog of expected product sales covered by firm purchase orders is a meaningful measure of future sales.

Backlog

At September 30, 2006 and October 1, 2005, our backlog was approximately $1.5 billion and $1.8 billion, respectively. Backlog consists of purchase orders received, including, in some instances, forecast requirements released for production under customer contracts. Cancellation and postponement charges generally vary depending upon the time of cancellation or postponement. Substantially all of our backlog as of September 30, 2006, is expected to be shipped in fiscal 2007. However, customers may cancel or postpone substantially all scheduled deliveries without significant penalty, except to the extent of any excess inventories as described above. Backlog may therefore not be a meaningful indicator of future financial results.

Backlog

 

At October 1, 2005 and October 2, 2004, our backlog was approximately $2.4 billion.  Backlog consists of purchase orders received, including, in some instances, forecast requirements released for production under customer contracts. Cancellation and postponement charges generally vary depending upon the time of cancellation or postponement.  Substantially all of our backlog as of October 1, 2005, is expected to be shipped in fiscal 2006.  However, customers may cancel or postpone substantially all scheduled deliveries without significant penalty and backlog may therefore not be a meaningful indicator of future financial results.
