Dii is scaling up, and that should be a concern to other midtier players,” said Roger Norberg, an analyst at U.S. Bancorp Piper Jaffray Inc., Minneapolis. Economically, the electronics manufacturing services (EMS) model has turned the corner. OEMs are going to be asking, 'What do you do to make me more competitive?' ”

Fujitsu Siemens Computers BV last week became the latest of several PC OEMs to outsource its manufacturing needs, signing Flextronics International Ltd. to a long-term supply contract.

From Intel's perspective, the technical difficulties in designing a host-controller interface-which sources say are concentrated in the analog component-necessitated the selection of high-volume chip manufacturers such as NEC and Lucent.

That's a question managers at top-tier CEMs would like to have answered. It's also one of the reasons behind the growing pace of consolidation within the industry. Until recently, however, the major CEMs-with a few exceptions-have been satisfied to go after captive OEM manufacturing facilities.

The combined company will have $681 million in cash by the end of this year, enough for any of the smaller-scale acquisitions that Marks and his team have in mind. It will also have combined sales of nearly $3.8 billion, which should shoot up to at least $6 billion by the end of 2000,” he said.

Choice Marketing, which began operating in Jamaica in 1994, closed in 1996 and reopened in 1998, has a 1% turnover rate, says company president Andre Smith.

If agents decide to pursue the supervisory route, CMC has nailed together a four-rung performance specialist career ladder. For three of therungs — team leader, coach and trainer — performance specialists must spend half their time on the phone to maintain proficiency. The top rung prepares these specialists to become supervisors. Performance specialists earn $11 an hour to $13.50 an hour, plus performance bonuses. Front-line managers and supervisors earn between $25,000 a year and $45,000 a year base salaries. As with agents, managers’ and supervisors’ salaries are commensurate with the complexity of their jobs.

Meanwhile, the overall architectural goal is to provide acceptable signal processing with minimal complexity and, therefore, minimal components. The chosen architecture will be the result of various trade-offs decided at the overall radio design level. For instance, how many stages of downconversion should the radio use? Although zero-IF or low-IF single-conversion approaches are attractive because of the reduction in required components, compromises must be considered in areas such as receiver sensitivity and selectivity.

There are four key issues to ensure that Bluetooth-enabled products are rapidly accepted in the volume marketplace. They include a high level of integration; very low power consumption; support for both multipoint and piconet-to-piconet connectivity; and ease of integration into an end-user application. Those key issues can be addressed by a top-down approach that looks at the entire system from the beginning of product development.
