LONDON ” Texas Instruments will start sampling in the first quarter of 2004 an applications processor developed using 90 nm process technology. The OMAP1710 device is said to offer up to 40 percent improvement in performance for many mobile applications, while consuming as little as half the power of current TI application processors.

The announcement also raises more questions about the development and viability of a next-generationlithography technology (NGL) called extreme ultraviolet (EUV). EUV was originally expected to hit mainstream fabs by 2007, but Intel Corp. and others have pushed out the technology to 2009 or so.

We're giving customers a great deal of flexibility to work with local vendors to make these carrier boards,” Jones said. The company's carrier boards are currently built by Exetec SA (Rancate, Switzerland), an electronics contractor.

But a highly competitive worldwide market increasingly marked by the presence of Chinese suppliers is likely to make some passives vendors skittish about raising contract prices for their key OEM customers, even as they report that price pressure is easing.

From a cost standpoint, the main benefit is lower operating voltages, at 6 V for nanocrystal flash vs. plus/minus 9 V or plus/minus 12 V for floating-gate flash.

Several examples illustrate the usefulness of peripheral compatibility across 8- and 32-bit MCUs. Utility power meters provide one good example because they have shifted from the traditional mechanical meter to electronic versions based on 8-bit devices, followed by versions based on 32-bit MCUs. The meters provided more detailed information about power usage, such as the amount of power consumed at peak times. An 8-bit MCU supports a simple infrared output function that allows meter readers to gather data electronically.

Mass production of flash memory at the fab will start in the second half of Toshiba's 2005 fiscal year, a move up from the original schedule that had production starting in 2006. Toshiba plans to start construction of the building between April and September 2004.

One factor that will prevent U.S. and other passives vendors from getting complacent is the growing influence of their Chinese competitors, which some analysts estimate now supply a
