Driven by the European Union's move to ban lead in electronic assemblies by 2006 as well as a similar move in Japan, many passive-component manufacturers are well ahead of the deadline to phase out lead in electronic components.

AUSTIN, Texas — Motorola Inc. has backed away from its efforts to commercialize gallium-arsenide-on-silicon wafer technology, SBN has learned.

To be fair, some here would argue that each task is already en route to resolution. They would likely be government officials looking to reassure themselves. Make no mistake, in about five years, the island will ante up for its stubborn reluctance (mostly in government) to engage China, as the rest of the world has done. In a place that should seem a natural extension of their domestic market, Taiwanese are considered foreigners.

Arlington, Texas – Winsystems Inc.'s newest EBC-BX single-board computer is based on an Intel 700-MHz Pentium III CPU for low-power and space-constrained industrial applications. The unit is designed for operation from -40 degrees C to +60 degrees C.

However, company executives stressed that royalty revenues grew 26% sequentially in the fourth quarter to 7.8 million (about $12.8 million) on record quarterly shipments of 127 million units, and that this indicated that the business was fundamentally sound and that ARM would eventually prosper when end-user market demand picked up.

Executives declined to project what they believe the revenue and profit targets will be for the new company, since both entities are privately held.

A key issue in the case was Rambus' duty to disclose its patent applications to Jedec members. Legal analysts said the appeals court found that Rambus' duty, as a participant in the Jedec standards process, arises only when work formally begins on the proposed standard,” said David Balto, a Washington IP attorney and former Federal Trade Commission (FTC) official.
