A special attraction this year is a tour of the University of Texas Center for Electromechanics. The mission of the center is to help industry produce products and processes that matter by combining university research with a growing core competence in the technologies needed to harness transient electrical and mechanical power. It is a large facility with 15 academic faculty members, an 80 person research staff and an annual funding of $15 million. The Center has opened its doors to APEC attendees for this special tour on Thursday evening. This is a unique event that you won't find at any other power electronics conference.

Désigné pour trois ans, Patrick Cocquet siègera aux côtés de personnalités issues de la recherche et de l’entreprise, telles que Thierry Breton de France Télécom, Jean-Pierre Corniou de Renault, Gilles Pélisson de Bouygues Télécom, Jacques Stern d’ENS ou encore Serge Tchuruk d’Alcatel.

The FUSI approach (see story, page 15) replaces the polysilicon gate electrode with a metal, usually nickel, in a phase-change operation done at relatively high temperatures. FUSI electrodes are attractive from the standpoint of process complexity, but the approach thus far results in a midgap type of metal — one that lacks the good bandgap separation needed for high-performance CMOS, said Serge Biesemans, director of the CMOS device technology research department at IMEC, the Leuven, Belgium, research institute.

Markus Wloka is director of R&D for the Synopsys Verification Group in Herzogenrath, Germany. Wloka joined Synopsys in 1996, where he contributed to the COSSAP and System Studio system-level design tool. Prior to Synopsys, Wloka joined Motorola SPS in Tempe, Arizona in 1991, where he worked on the Entice standard cell characterization software, with a focus on distributed Spice and power characterization.

Indeed, it appears that in 2005 larger commercial vendors, and a slew of new EDA and IP startups, will begin to emerge in the DFM market to address these and other issues.

La société Vectrix Corporation a été créée en 1996 dans le but de mettre au point et de commercialiser des technologies « ZEV » (Zero Emission Vehicle) destinées aux applications pour les deux-roues. Avec pour unique objectif la création de « transports intra-urbains efficaces, propres, fiables et abordables », Vectrix est à la tête d’une véritable révolution dans le domaine des transports en ville. Initialement conçu pour les navetteurs, les citadins, les services de livraison et les municipalités des grandes villes européennes, le scooter Vectrix répondra aux besoins en matière de transport économique respectant les normes écologiques strictes en application sur le vieux continent. Cette technologie devrait bientôt être mise en œuvre dans de grandes villes américaines.
