Note 10: Other Long-Term Assets
Other long-term assets at the end of each period were as follows:
As of September 26, 2015, the carrying amount of our non-marketable cost method investments includes $966 million related to our investment in UniSpreadtrum. For further information, see "Note 4: Cash and Investments."
During the first nine months of 2015, we received and transferred $201 million of equipment from other long-term assets to property, plant and equipment. Substantially all of the equipment was prepaid in 2012 and 2013. We recognized the pre-payments within operating activities in the consolidated condensed statement of cash flows when we paid for the equipment, and the receipt of the equipment is reflected as a non-cash transaction in the current period.
