LEDs use 75 percent less energy than incandescent bulbs, and both incandescent and CFL bulbs are extremely inefficient, releasing the vast majority (90 percent and 80 percent, respectively) of their energy as heat as opposed to light. ON Semiconductor, like many other manufacturing businesses, is using LED lighting technology as extensively as possible, and combined with the use of VFDs, this yields major energy savings and enhances the company’s environmental credentials.

Separately, Solectron said it now sees an additional fourth-quarter restructuring charge of up to $210 million, on top of a $50 million restructuring charge announced in June.

Setting aside the personal angle, though, why did Broadcom’s proposed takeover of Qualcomm get so much attention in the electronics industry? And why does Jacobs want to buy out Qualcomm?

Savings expected

A third option is to include built-in self-test (BIST) structures in the silicon, either to verify design correctness (functional testing) or to detect manufacturing defects (structural testing). Digital BIST techniques, while in fairly wide use, are typically employed by integrated-device manufacturers that have complete control over the design process and thus can rigorously enforce design-for-test rules.

Contract manufacturers fell victim to the virus ravaging the global electronics market. Many analysts were expecting EMS providers to ride out the current market weakness in relative safety, garnering additional contracts as harried OEMs outsource more of their manufacturing operations in an attempt to further reduce costs. It didn't work out entirely as predicted.

Cisco is proposing that even if corporations and cities have yet to figure out how to best exploit big data, the company can guide them to effectively monetize the data they’ve got.
