EE Times Market Intelligence Unit (MIU) Offers Comprehensive Analytical Reports in Dedicated Web Environment

Jun 9, 2008

EE Times today announced the launch of a dedicated web environment for its Market Intelligence Unit (MIU) at, which features up-to-the-minute analysis of markets and global business conditions, including archives of market analysis from firms and research organizations, information on investment activity and trends, financial surveys and analyses, and news of companies and people that are driving the business. The site also features a subscription-based research library with special, in-depth technical reports authored by the EE Times MIU staff.

"What began as a company library for our staff research reports grew into a centralized market research resource for the electronics industry," said Loring Wirbel, director of the MIU. "We will spotlight research studies from our own team and our partners, but we want readers to make up their own minds by comparing and contrasting what many analysts have to say."

In addition to unique content, the site features aggregated news from TechInsights and other news sources. On its launch, the site features an investment column from Loren Lancaster of Core Capital Group on mergers and acquisitions in the electronics industry, and a business analysis of the recently announced merger of two optoelectronics firms, Finisar and Optium.

"The EE Times Market Intelligence Unit is an integral part of our strategy," said Paul Miller, CEO of TechInsights. "We know that the design development community, and senior managers throughout the electronics industry need access to detailed, actionable information about markets, technology, business and the competitive environment. The MIU is positioned to deliver exactly that information in an easily accessible environment and at a reasonable price point for custom research."

Added David Blaza, vice president of EE Times, "EE Times has always been about delivering essential information -- the insight and business intelligence -- to decision makers in the electronics space. With the launch of the EET MIU site, we are adding one more way for our audience to get the information they need."

The MIU is collaborating with Semiconductor Insights and Portelligent to provide a one-stop site for ordering industry reports, maximizing the business intelligence among the three groups within the TechInsights team.
