LCD panel makers in general are suffering from poor pricing in the market. On Tuesday, No.3 panel maker AU Optronics said it lost $155 million in the first quarter, its first loss in two years, as prices sagged. Earlier this month, LG.Philips LCD, the No.2 panel maker, reported its fourth straight quarterly loss, at $181 million. Samsung SDI said it lost $82 million.

Denali mostly builds memory controllers, and one challenge there is that it's hard to have one size that fits all,” he said. Thus, the IP needs to be highly configurable. His prescription for IP success: figure out the balance between how to build things that are configurable enough for 80 to 90 percent of the market, and still be a product.”

As in any business undertaking, it is important to ask what benefit one might expect to gain from benchmarking the call center, and what the costs of benchmarking will be. Historically, due to a relative dearth of benchmarking data, the cost of performing a call center benchmark was quite high. It was not uncommon for a company to pay $100,000 or more for a comprehensive call center benchmark. Fortunately, through the creation of large-scale benchmarking databases, companies like MetricNet have reduced this cost by an order of magnitude, and a high quality call center benchmark can now be had for under $10,000. The removal of this financial constraint puts benchmarking within the reach of virtually any call center. Now, the biggest cost in benchmarking is no longer the price paid to an outside benchmarking firm, but rather the cost of the internal resources required to conduct the benchmark. The time and effort required for successful benchmarking is not insignificant; it can run into the hundreds of hours if not properly managed. As will be discussed in more detail below, the most resource-intensive step in the process is data collection. It is critical to factor this cost” into any benchmarking effort, as failure to do so will almost certainly doom any benchmarking project from the outset.

Our notion of software DNA mapping is to understand what's going on not only in the source code, but also in the build system that puts the source code together,” Chelf said. We make sure the files [going into the analyzer] are compiled in the right way so the analysis most closely represents what's going to run.”

Such events can enable companies to secure one price for parts from various alternative manufacturers and diversify the risk of component availability.

Elpida displaced Micron in the fourth quarter last year in terms of unit shipments and now has only a marginal gap from the number-three supplier, Qimonda. Elpida grew its bit shipments by 40 percent, compared to single-digit growth by Samsung and Qimonda.

Xilinx has announced that Aloka Co., Ltd., the world's leading pioneer of ultrasound systems for the medical and health science industries, has selected Virtex-4 SX EasyPath FPGAs for its ProSound 10 high-end ultrasound diagnostic system. Aloka leveraged high-performance DSP functionality from Xilinx to develop a real-time display for high definition images, incorporating sophisticated features while significantly reducing development lead time.

The Japanese saw MEMS as an extension of microminiaturization–their purpose was just to attain higher precision,” he said. By contrast, I saw MEMS as important because it was a means of building electromechanical structures that used semiconductor fabrication techniques and thus could leverage the global semiconductor industry with all its associated fabrication, materials and control knowledge.”

Despite what you may have heard, it is not essential that you gain buy-in from senior management. If they reject your telework proposal, implement a home-agent program anyway. Later, when management asks you why there are so many empty workstations, tell them that your frontline was stricken by the bird flu, that you have been handling the phones yourself to keep service levels up, and that you have been more than glad to pitch in. They will know you are lying, but will appreciate you being creative and deceptive for personal gain, and, consequently, will likely show their deep appreciation by firing you last when they decide to outsource to India.
