GuruFocus Financial Strength Rank measures how strong a company’s financial situation is. It is based on these factors

1. The debt burden that the company has as measured by its Interest coverage (current year).
2. Debt to revenue ratio. The lower, the better
3. Altman Z-score.

A company ranks high with financial strength is likely to withstand any business slowdowns and recessions.

GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Business Description

Industry: Semiconductors » Semiconductors
Compare:INTC, TSM, BRCM, ARMH, ADI » details
Traded in other countries:LP2.Germany
EZChip Semiconductor Ltd., was incorporated as a limited liability company under the laws of the State of Israel in 1989 as Dan-Serb Ltd. and changed its name to LanOptics Ltd. in March 1990 and to EZchip Semiconductor Ltd. It is currently engaged in the development and marketing of Ethernet network processors for networking equipment. The Company provides its customers with solutions that scale from a few Gigabits per second to hundreds of Gigabits per second. Its network processors provide great flexibility and high performance coupled with superior integration and power efficiency for applications in carrier, data center, cloud and enterprise networking equipment. The Company designs and produces network processors for high-speed networking equipment, integrating several key functions into a single chip. Its products include: Network Processor Chips - The NP-2, introduced in 2005, is a single-chip, full-duplex, 10-Gigabit (20-Gigabit total) network processor. In addition to the integration of packet processing, classification search engines and MACs provided in the previous generation NP-1c, the NP-2 also includes traffic managers for improved QoS. Evaluation Boards and Network-processor Based Systems - Evaluation systems are usually required by customers to enable them to test their NPU-based systems. These systems also serve customers that focus and differentiate themselves through software applications and are in need of high-performance packet processing hardware platforms for their software applications. Development Software Toolkits - EZdriver is a toolset that facilitates the development of the control path software for its systems. It enables applications that run on the control CPU to communicate with its network processors. The Company also works with vendors of complementary technologies to provide its customers with fully interoperable solutions. It provides interoperability with devices from numerous semiconductor companies, including Broadcom (including through the acquired Dune Networks and NetLogic Microsystems), Marvell, PMC-Sierra and Zarlink. Many of its customers are vendors of networking equipment to which the company sells directly or through contract manufacturers or distributors. It holds four U.S. registered patents. The Company competes with all these vendors as well as with multi-core processors that target networking equipment from vendors, such as Broadcom, Cavium Networks and other smaller vendors.
