Packet processing is one of the most demanding memory-intensive applications, particularly with today's requirements for enhanced services,” said Kevin Donnelly, vicepresident and general manager of cnsumer and communications products at Rambus, in Mountain View, Calif.

To help meet customers' demands, the call centers recently installed Voci's (San Jose, CA) Sereno speech recognition software. Last summer we conducted customer focus groups on speech recognition and our customers told us that this is the solution that they were looking for. If they can, they want to avoid talking to an agent. Secondly, they find it faster than using touch tone,” says Angelo Tiveron, call center manager of Nova Scotia Power.

SANTA CLARA, CALIF. — Emulation Technology has begun marketing a line of ball-grid-array (BGA) and chip-scale-package (CSP) prototyping adapters, enabling designers to add 1.27-mm, 1-mm and 8-mm pitch BGAs to their prototype breadboards.

Internationalization is particularly important for GUIs. Often an embedded device is sold overseas as well as in the United States. A graphics solution must be easily adaptable to display dates, time, measurements, currency and language in forms appropriate for the country where the device will be marketed. However, the localization must be handled independently of the core application.

Also, the ability to deal with DRCs at the gate level is an inverse function of design size and complexity. Synopsys notes that a 500,000-gate design can have between 5,000 and 10,000 rule violations, requiring 2,000 to 3,000 test points for a fix.

A lot of people forget that sound is carried by air pressure (and conduction along solid objects too).

None of this would be very germane to a column on semiconductors, except that a good portion of the world's CMOS capacity-or, a good portion of the capacity that is available to fabless companies-happens to be on this one small island. This fact was mentioned, in passing, when Taiwan was rattled by a severe earthquake a few months ago. But the fabs were mostly undamaged, and the temporary constriction in capacity was absorbed quietly by the industry. At least, no one wanted to admit that it had been a problem, lest they reveal a competitive weakness to their customers.

At the very least, adaptive hardware techniques may make it easier for small OEMs to compete with the entrenched electronics giants.
