Intersil Corp third-quarter revenue to miss estimates

(Reuters) - Chipmaker Intersil Corp ISIL.O estimated third-quarter revenue below analyst estimates on weakness in its personal computing business.

The company estimated revenue of about $151 million, below its forecast of $156 million to $163 million.

Analysts on average were expecting $159.6 million, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Intersil, which makes power management chips used in flat panel displays and DVD players, expects revenue from personal computing to fall to 21 percent of total revenue, from 25 percent a year earlier.

    The company, which competes with Fairchild Semiconductor FCS.N, Altera (ALTR.O) and Texas Instruments TXN.N, will report third-quarter results on October 24.

    Intersil shares were down 2 percent in premarket trading on Tuesday. They closed at $7.31 on the Nasdaq on Monday.
