Chip sales jumped 11.3 percent in November 2006 to $22.7 billion.
The Consumer Electronics Association said sales of certain electronics, such as flat-panel displays and digital forecasts, topped forecasts, which compensated for eroding average sales prices on some products. Sales of digital cameras, for example, were up 30 percent over last year, according to the CEA.

The SIA also said semiconductor sales for the first 11 months of 2006 are in line with its forecast for 9.4 percent growth for the year, and 2007 sales are expected to grow 10 percent over 2006.
