O2Micro (OIIM) warns it expects Q4 revenue of $16M-$17M, below prior guidance of $17M-$20M and a consensus of $18.6M. The company, no stranger to warnings, blames "broad-based weakness in demand in our end markets, coupled with lower than normal inventories being held in the supply chain." At least a few other chipmakers have similar problems. Shares are likely to fall after rising 8% in regular trading. (PR)
