Texas Instruments Inc., using technology gleaned from its acquisition last year of Benchmarq/Unitrode, has expanded its power-management portfolio with a battery-monitor IC said to eliminate the need for an identification chip and temperature thermistor, and a family of battery-charger circuits that significantly reduce board space.

TOKYO–The DRAM joint venture between NEC Corp. and Hitachi Ltd. today branded itself as Elpida Memory Inc. The two Japanese chip giants also announced that the joint venture has completed development of its first product using 0.13-micron design rules to create a 256-megabit memory in half the die size of today's 0.18-micron DRAMs.

There's clearly a weaker employee bond the farther they move up the abstraction chain. Yet at the same time, nearly 60 percent of engineers agree that they feel a clear link between their work and company objectives. Said one respondent:

These products are members of the Intel Internet Exchange Architecture (IXA), an end-to-end line of high-performance, flexible, and scalable hardware and software building blocks.

Though options to date have been largely limited to FPGA-based cores-which come with their own set of challenges-one company is touting a hybrid approach that blends lookup-table cells with conventional mask-programmable interconnects. The combination is said to deliver standard-cell-like performance and density with the lower risk and fast turnaround time of programmable logic.

Several companies have begun development on ways to avoid the opto-electronic conversions, allowing switching of the light itself in an all-optical box. And one of the acquisitions in that area was Nortel's purchase of Xros Inc., a startup designing a cross-connect that could be a key element of an all-optical switch.

Still, the startup foundry has solved another pressing matter: technical expertise. In addition to its technology deal with Toshiba, SMIC has recruited engineering talent from Taiwan and Singapore, reportedly from Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing Pte. Ltd.

Thompson and Mooradian agree there is an enormous demand for this technology in communications now and possibly in other markets later, such as high-definition displays. Thompson's strong background in display technology, in fact, was one reason why Novalux wanted him as CEO. We're focusing on telecom initially,” Thompson said, but there's enormous potential for what we're doing when it comes to displays. We could, for example, use our parts to make low-power RGB lasers and make beautiful, and powerful, displays.”

Volume production will begin to ramp several months later in the spring, and by December 2001, Elpida expects to be fabricating five million 256-Mbit chips per month using the 0.13-micron design.

Both Thompson, the Novalux CEO, and Mooradian said the NECSEL is applicable to many segments of many markets. For telecom, the company is eyeing long-haul, metro and access equipment makers.
