Sunnyvale, Calif.–May 10, 1999–Virtual Silicon Technology, Inc.(Sunnyvale), and TSMC (Hsinchu, Taiwan) announced a 0.18-µm test-chip that demonstrates the manufacturability of Virtual Silicon's TSMC-specific libraries usingTSMC's 0.18-µm six level metal process.

The STF701 is also available now in an SC-70. Pricing is 31 cents per unit in 10,000-unit quantities.

The core of the recently outlined strategy is two-fold: create groups to coordinate supply-chain activities and outsource a significant portion of the company's manufacturing activity.

FMI is also spending $60 million to add logic-manufacturing capability to its Gresham, Ore., wafer fab to diversify its production base. And the company continues to outsource DRAM production to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd. and Acer Semiconductor Manufacturing Inc.

On the high-performance end, telecom, networking and other equipment with big backplanes can take advantage of new GTL devices from TI and Fairchild. This month, TI introduced its GTL16612A, an 18-bit universal transceiver and the first in a family of CMOS-based GTL backplane drivers. The part is able to sustain 80-MHz clock rates even when heavily loaded, the company said. It costs $5.50 each in quantities of 1,000.

We are excited about the engineering leadership Sajol will bring to our team,” said Ford Tamer, chief executive officer of Agere (Austin, Texas). We value his track record and ability to quickly solve problems and adapt to changing situations. He knows how to keep his group focused on the end result, which can mean the difference between making a product ship date or not.”

  • But no matter how smart they might become, Michael Swanwick, author of In The Drift,Vacuum Flower,Griffin's Egg and other novels, believes machines won't be able to express emotions” the way people do.

    On the front-end chip business either for terrestrial DTV or cable set-tops, the number of silicon suppliers is relatively limited compared with those supplying back-end solutions. A lot of OEMs would love to get an alternative source for their systems,” Erdengiz said.

    When FCI purchased Berg Electronics, they purchased a global company, but their US business is a huge part of it,” Bishop said. Because FCI has made a very major investment here, I think it came down to the fact that they wanted one of their trusted and proven executives to take over and run the electronics piece of the business and be stationed in North American to do that.”

    Fairchild Semiconductor Corp., Sunnyvale, Calif., uses its open-cell PowerTrench technology to create what it claims is the first low-threshold (2.5-V) dual p-channel MOSFET. In a SuperSOT-6, the FDC6306P has on-resistance of 160 m*, making it ideal for cell phones, PDAs, and video cameras, the company said.
