No. Vitesse is a "fabless" company, which means that it does not own or operate foundries for wafer and die fabrications or device assembly. Instead, it outsources the wafer fabrication and assembly of its semiconductor products to independent, third-party contractors. Vitesse does, however, conduct final test of products in-house.
Vitesse's conference calls are open to everyone and are also accessible via an audio webcast, which is maintained on the company's website following the call. See "IR Events & Presentations" in the Investors section for the next scheduled conference call.
