<p>Staccato is not banking solely on wireless USB for design wins. Ripcord2 also supports high-speed Bluetooth, Internet Protocol and other protocols.</p>

Ripcord2 has the features to make UWB a viable technology for mass market deployment,” said Kyung Soo Park, chief research engineer, Wireless Connectivity Lab at LG Innotek. By working together and combining our expertise, we have been able to create an integrated module solution that is just 8.5mm x 6mm, which is comparable to high volume module solutions available today in other established wireless connectivity markets such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.”

The business includes certain customer contracts, technologies and employees. With the deal, San Jose-based PDF expands its offerings.

Triant's product, dubbed ModelWare, is a modular suite of software components developed to monitor equipment health and detect faults in semiconductor fabrication equipment.

Triant had been on the block amid losses and declining sales. ''In light of the current uncertain macroeconomic environment and the semiconductor industry slowdown in particular, Triant has noted a continued hesitancy among semiconductor manufacturers to commit to major capital projects,'' according to its recent results.

''It is uncertain whether Triant can generate enough revenue in the near term to sustain its operations in the absence of additional financing, which is problematic given the current state of capital markets, or in the absence of corporate restructuring or concluding a strategic initiative,'' the company said.

PDF Solutions is also seeing some tough times. Recently, it projected total revenue in the range of $20.0 million to $22.0 million for the third fiscal quarter ending Sept. 30, 2008. On a GAAP basis, net loss for the third fiscal quarter of 2008 is projected in a range of $1.9 million to $310,000, or minus $0.07 to $0.01 per basic and diluted share.

Total revenue for the second fiscal quarter of 2008 totaled $21.1 million, up 3 percent from $20.3 million in the first fiscal quarter of 2008 and down 11 percent when compared with total revenue of $23.7 million for the second fiscal quarter of 2007.

Net loss for the quarter was $1.9 million, or minus $0.07 per basic and diluted share, versus a net loss of $2.5 million, or minus $0.09 per basic and diluted share in the first fiscal quarter of 2008. Net loss for the second fiscal quarter of 2007 was $701,000, or minus $0.02 per basic and diluted share.

Amid the losses, PDF is expanding its business. Looking to weave a new fabric” for nanometer IC design, yield optimization provider PDF last year purchased startup Fabbrix Inc., a provider of silicon intellectual property (IP) that promises a lithography-friendly alternative to conventional standard cell design. The purchase helps bring to market a new approach to design for manufacturability (DFM).

Under the terms of the most recent deal, Triant (Vancouver, Canada) shall receive $1.75 million in cash in exchange for those assets. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and approval of Triant shareholders. The transaction is expected to close on or about Sept. 30, 2008.

International Rectifier has introduced the AUIRS212xS family of rugged 600V, single channel high-side driver ICs for low-, mid-, and high-voltage automotive applications including general purpose automotive drives, high-voltage actuators and fuel-efficient direct injection systems.

Qualified to AEC-Q100 standards, the AUIRS2123S and AUIRS2124S high speed power MOSFET and IGBT drivers offer a gate drive supply range from 10V to 20V. The output drivers feature a high-pulse current buffer stage designed for minimum driver cross-conduction while the floating channel can be used to drive N-channel power MOSFETs or IGBTs in the high-side configuration operating up to 600V. Both devices feature negative voltage spike (Vs) immunity to protect the system against catastrophic events during high-current switching and short circuit conditions.

Designed specifically for automotive applications, the new ICs use a proprietary latch immune CMOS technology featuring exceptional negative Vs immunity to deliver the ruggedness and reliability essential for harsh environments and automotive under-the-hood applications.

The AUIRS2123S features output signals in phase with the input signal while the AUIRS2124S features output signals out of phase with the input signal. Both devices provide under-voltage lockout and CMOS Schmitt-triggered inputs with pull-down.

The new ICs utilize IR’s advanced high-voltage IC process which incorporates next-generation high-voltage level-shifting and termination technology to deliver superior electrical over-stress protection and higher field reliability.
