CHICAGO, July 24 (Reuters) - Motorola Inc. (NYSE:MOT) fell from the
ranks of the world's largest makers of semiconductors for the first
time since the company built its original chip plant in 1959,
according to a new report by semiconductor research firm IC Insights.
Motorola, based in the Chicago suburb of Schaumburg, Illinois, fell
from the top 10 ranking for the first time, IC Insights said in a
