Kalkhoven said the impact from collapsing companies still has not been fully felt. Market capitalization for telecom OEMs was around $330 billion in February, yet the global market for their services was only around $140 billion. Since many could enter Chapter 11 bankruptcy and emerge as strong companies, widespread bankruptcy only delayed this inevitable reckoning, he said.

ALi's Yu said integrating the digital baseband and MAC functions into the PC South Bridge chipset makes a lot of sense and could cut costs.”

« Actuellement, nous sommes le seul fournisseur de PLD (Programmable Logic Devices ou Périphériques Logiques Programmables) à proposer un programme d'évaluation d'IP intégrant les c?urs IP d'autres sociétés et la possibilité de tester au niveau du matériel », se félicite Craig Lytle, vice-président de la division IP d'Altera. « En permettant aux concepteurs d'évaluer un c?ur IP avant de s'engager totalement sur un projet, nous pouvons les aider à réduire les risques tout en accélérant le délai de commercialisation de leurs produits », précise-il.

Product-marketing manager Stephane Bellosquardo said Volta is one of the few framing devices that can bridge a dense wave-division multiplexing ring and a traditional Sonet ring. On either type of fiber ring, the chip allows the transport of dedicated traffic for fiber-based storage or transaction networks. Even the European DVB-ASI interface is supported for video traffic.

DSPs are now generally available in faster speeds than microcontrollers,” said Forward Concepts analyst Will Strauss.

However, 802.11 adoption is hampered somewhat by the relatively small penetration of notebook computers in China. That may change as Intel Corp. and system vendors push WiFi-enabled Centrino systems, and as a unique set of PDAs that support Intenet access through 802.11 communications enter the China market, Zhou said.

Apart from anything else, the majority of today's designs feature channels between blocks, where these channels are used for the global (block-to-block) interconnect. To illustrate the problems with this approach, let's assume that we have three blocks called A, B, and C placed side by side. Connections from A to B and B to C will be relatively efficient, but connections from A to C will have to be routed around B. In addition to increasing the latency of the global signals, this approach often ends up with tracks running in parallel for long distances. This results in coupling problems, which requires you to increase the spacing between the tracks, which increases the size of the channels, which pushes the blocks further apart, which increases the latency of the global signals, which ….phew!

The $600 million merger announced last week is expected to im- prove the two IC makers' cash position, help reduce costs, extend their technology to new consumer electronics display applications, and offer a broader line of display ICs.
