According to the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), almost 60% of researchers have been required to communicate with the general public but hardly any had received formal training to help them cope.

Call centers are also boosting agent retention, and cutting costs, by implementing effective workforce management software and practices. Chief Technical Editor Joe Fleischer writes in our cover story that centers are attracting and keeping qualified people by giving them (and/or allowing them to bid or trade on) the schedules they prefer.

But chip makers based in Japan and in the Asia Pacific region were on the losing end of share in the global market. The Japanese share slipped from 27.9% in 2000 to 26.3% last year, and Asian Pacific vendors fell from 10% in 2000 to just 8.6% share in 2001, iSuppli says.

Once the application has been designed and optimized, there are benefits to be realized in how it is deployed to the device. Depending on the type of application and the characteristics of the device, it may be more beneficial to execute the application out of flash rather than RAM. This technique could minimize RAM requirements or provide the application with an instant-on” capability.

Semiconductor and component suppliers, as well as some distributors, are seeing increasing orders as a result of inventory replenishment, in some cases from customers that had not ordered parts for months. This is not a huge snap-back, as most of the orders are coming on an as-needed basis, or turns” business. Lead times are still at normal or below normal levels in most component categories, given the still low capacity utilization levels. And long-range bookings are still few and far between, as purchasers still have painful memories of late 2000 and early 2001.

Madavi succeeds Curtis J. Crawford as chairman of On Semiconductor. Crawford–the first chairman of the company's board, serving in that position for more than two years–will remain on the board of directors, said On Semiconductor. Crawford was previously president and CEO of Zilog Inc., and recently he was named CEO at Onix Microsystems Inc., a developer of optical switches (see Feb. 11 story).

Internet breadth Sun bought the company that developed NetBeans and spun it off as an open-source project. From an evolutionary perspective, that was a key move because it gave NetBeans the ability to respond to environmental changes more quickly and accurately.
