<p>Kahng illustrated the concept of library-based solutions by examining the problem of phase conflicts in minimum-dimension gate lithography. The problem involves resolving minimum-dimension gates, hence it is necessary to place a phase shifter on each side of the gate feature on the mask set, one shifter in each polarity. When a series of gates are close together, it may be impossible to arrange the shifter rectangles so they don't overlap and conflict with each other.</p>

It should be noted that each NPE represents not only a hardware device but also, for a programmable device, the software that controls its behavior. The Message Layer IA has been designed to operate efficiently across NPE devices with varying degrees of programmability.

Fourth-quarter chip revenues of $463 million were down 2 percent from last year, because of a sharp drop in the hardcopy ASIC business. Operating profits in the quarter reached $40 million, double last year on $8 million lower volume. Sequentially, profits were up $48 million on $83 million higher volume.

The automated test equipment (ATE) segment had another strong performance in the fourth quarter, with orders of $260 million up 72 percent from last year to the highest levels since the fourth quarter of 2000. Sequentially, orders were up 4 percent from already strong third quarter levels, with both semiconductor test and manufacturing test participating in the increase for the third consecutive quarter.

ATE revenues of $260 million were 18 percent above last year and up 26 percent sequentially. Operating profits of $45 million, or 17 percent of revenues, compared to profits of $9 million one year ago and $6 million in the prior quarter.

Fourth-quarter test and measurement orders were 4 percent below one year ago and up 14 percent from the seasonally weak third quarter. Revenues of $631 million were 16 percent below last year; adjusting for last year's surge in shipments following the implementation of a new ERP system, revenues were off about 8 percent.

The fourth-quarter operating loss of $11 million was $96 million better than one year ago despite $116 million lower revenues. Compared to the third quarter, profits were improved by $58 million on only $18 million higher revenues.

Looking ahead, Barnholt said, About 40 percent of Agilent's revenues today are tied to consumer electronics. As such, the first quarter of fiscal 2004 will be seasonally weaker. But, we believe Agilent now has the cost structure as well as the innovative new products to take full advantage of the recovery in our markets.”

For the first quarter, the company anticipates revenues in the range of $1.55 billion to $1.65 billion. Earnings before restructuring and amortization charges are expected to be in a range of $0.05 to $0.15 per share.

MÜNCHEN &#151 Der Prozessorhersteller AMD wird wahrscheinlich schon in dieser Woche mit dem Bau eines geplanten neuen Werks in Dresden beginnen. Das Unternehmen plant eine Investition von 2,4 Milliarden Euro.

Presseberichten zufolge, die sich ihrereseits auf wirtschaftspolitische Kreise in der sächsischen Landesregierung beziehen, wird AMD voraussichtlich am Donnerstag eine Bürgschaft der Bundesregierung zur Absicherung der erforderlichen Kedite erhalten. Anderen Quellen zufolge bürgt die sächsische Landesregierung für 80 Prozent der erforderlichen Kredite.

Klaus Pildal tror att man från Nokias sida däremot har sett en klar fördel i att ha en kraftfull korttillverkare på nära håll och att man därför inte ensidigt ägnat sig åt att bara banka ner priserna i botten”.

– Tack vare det har Aspocomp, och det gäller även österrikiska AT&S, kunnat bygga upp sina verksamheter, samt börsnotera sig och därmed kunnat skaffa kapital för den vidare expansionen.

Klaus tycker att det i Finland har rått en sorts Gnosjöanda” i stort format, som det däremot har saknats omkring Ericsson.

– Det tror jag har haft stor betydelse för den struktur som mönsterkortbranschen fått i Finland och Sverige. Den finska kontraktstillverkaren Elcoteqs utveckling är också ett uttryck för detta.

Lönsamheten Korttillverkning har alltid ansetts som en lågmarginalverksamhet med stort kapitalbehov, vilket tar sig uttryck i att företagens lönsamhet generellt sett ter sig rätt dålig. Det finns emellertid undantag, och i Norden är PriDana ett lysande sådant, vilket framgår av fig 6, som visar driftsresultatet för Nordens tio mest lönsamma mönsterkorttillverkare under perioden 1998-2002.

The viewports will be part of Verisity's Verification Process Automation (VPA) solutions, based on its Specman testbench development environment and e” hardware verification language. They will be rolled out over the next two years, though it remains unclear precisely how or when they will be productized.
