The technology — five years in the making at Xulu — is said to be the fruit of a rare combination of cross-industry disciplines, technologies and talent marshaled by Solomon over the years. On the tech side, they range from the methodologies used in EDA simulations to the physics principles that enable robotic devices to move wafers in a semiconductor fab.

Once the Sematech board identified e-diagnostics as a priority issue last year, they asked us to move at Internet speed,” Wohlwend said. A meeting at Sematech was convened on June 29, bringing together the chipmaker members of Sematech and various vendors, including suppliers of middleware and fab automation software, in addition to equipment manufacturers. Weeks of follow-up meetings and discussions culminated in the consortium's first e-diagnostics seminar last October, during SEMI's Semicon/Southwest conference in Austin. A similar seminar was held at Semicon/Japan in December, with 200 people attending, and another is planned for Semicon/Europa in April in Munich. Sematech has also scheduled a seminar in La Jolla, Calif. on March 23, just after the conclusion of the SEMI North America Standards Winter Meeting.

Even so, there are advantages, especially in verification. There's no PLI [programming language interface] between your testbenches and the device under test, so it's easier to integrate with software modules,” Lie said. He noted that Cynlib allows testbenches with C-language structures that aren't available in Verilog.

The company picked a near zero-IF receive section to avoid the problems of trying to build a full direct-conversion transceiver in CMOS.

Harrisburg, Pa. – AMP's wire pins, used with Buchanan, RDI and AMP Termi-Blok terminal blocks, are said to withstand many mating, tightening and loosening cycles.

The card is equipped with standard CompactPCI and H.110 time-division-multiplexed interfaces, which make it easy to combine the unit with voice-, fax- and modem-processing cards in a CompactPCI-based network access system, according to Ariel. The T1 version of the product includes four programmable Texas Instruments TMS320-C5410 digital signal processors, which are used for tone detection in T1 robbed-bit signaling environments.

Also in the hunt are Calxeda and Marvell (which are actually shipping 32-bitters today), as well as AMD, Nvidia and maybe even Huawei which have yet to show silicon. Come to think of it, there ought to be three or four papers on this topic.

Reluctance reversed

Hoping to accelerate deployment of new online software and services, International Sematech in Austin launched an e-diagnostics working group last spring after the issue was given a high priority at the consortium's Industry Executive Forum in April 2000. Sematech announced the e-diagnostic program last summer (see July 7, 2000, story), and it has issued a request for proposals for a demonstration project.
