<p style=A few days ago I penned a blog titled USB-based devices are taking over the world! in which I waffled on about a USB-based desk-top digital microscope, USB-based virtual girl and boy friends, and suchlike.

This offset a 52% decline in operating profit for the Components group to $90 million for the first quarter. Philips attributed the decline to an extraordinary one-time $170 million gain in the year-ago quarter from the divestiture of Philips' conventional passive components segment. Sales for the Component group, meanwhile, rose 29% to $1.05 billion.

IEC Electronics Corp., Newark, N.Y., last year opened what it calls its Tex-Mex” solution, a 50,000-sq.-ft. plant in Reynosa, to aid its sister operation in Edinburg, Texas, according to chairman Russell Stingel.

ACT Manufacturing Inc., Hudson, Mass., last year inherited a Hermosillo facility through its merger with CMC Industries.

SMTC Corp., Markham, Ontario, has opened a plant in Chihuahua City.

Plexus Corp., Neenah, Wis., joined the border boom about a month ago when it agreed to purchase two Juarez turnkey manufacturing plants from Elamex S.A. de C.V., a 25-year-old Mexican CEM. The $53 million deal is Plexus' first venture outside the United States.

While Guadalajara is often viewed as Silicon Valley south” because of its concentration of high-tech industries, border towns tend more to attract TV, audio, and automotive manufacturers and repair operations, said Sergio Garcia de Alba, director of business development and investment for the state of Jalisco, in which Guadalajara is located.

Shipping costs are important to companies. They don't want to concentrate everything in Guadalajara,” he said.

For Lexmark Electronics, Reynosa, which is close to Brownsville, Texas, offers a good location to build low- cost PCBs, said director of operations Bill Rowe. The CEM scouted several Mexican cities before selecting Reynosa. Lexmark Electronics is a subsidiary of Lexmark International, which manufactures ink-jet printers in Juarez and Chihuahua City.

We found an existing building on 10 acres; Reynosa has a lot of infrastructure and supply base,” Rowe said.

According to a study by Collett International Research Inc., an EDA market research firm in Santa Clara, Calif., chip designers ranked verifying correct functionality before tapeout as their most serious concern. Although users of commercial emulation reported a reduced design cycle time most often as the most important benefit of emulation, the study found that only 17% of teams surveyed used a commercial emulation system in their project.

Moreover, 31% of them considered the length of time to setup emulation to be the most serious drawback of using traditional commercial emulation technology, whereas for 16% the large amount of manpower required was seen as the most serious drawback.

Axis said SE technology reduces emulation setup time by offering the same ease of use as simulation in a single platform without altering design methodology. Designers can switch from emulation to simulation and debug the design within their simulation environment.

With the ability to swap an emulation state into Axis' RCC or Xsim simulation, users can emulate to find design errors, swap an emulation state into fast RCC-based simulation technology in real time and debug their emulation results all within the same environment. SE technology eliminates the need for logic analyzers, provides high-performance verification throughput and offers fast design turnaround time with the same ease of use as software simulators, the company said.

The EE Times 60 Emerging Startups list, first published in April 2004, has been updated to version 6.0 to reflect the latest corporate, commercial, technology and market conditions. In version 6.0 of the EE Times Emerging Startups list, editors have selected companies based on a mix of criteria including: technology, intended market, maturity, financial position and investment profile. I have not taken part in the selection process but I am going to provide the portion of the list that deals directly with the EDA industry.

#3 What is the total length of the interconnect (poly-silicon and metal tracks) on a high-end silicon chip? Well, this is a bit of a tricky one isn't it? I mean, where do you go to find information like this? It's not like you can take the top off a chip package, pull out your trusty 12-inch ruler and start measuring things. I mean, we're talking about tracks so fine that you can't even see them with the naked eye!
