The preliminary proxy statement included an open letter to Atmel shareholders in which Perlegos said, I believe that the restructuring initiatives announced by the incumbents' current management are flawed and do not go far enough in refocusing Atmel's business and returning value to shareholders.”

Specifically Perlegos criticized a plan to simply sell off a wafer fab in Heilbronn, Germany.

I believe the plan to sell this wafer fabrication facility would be a mistake because a sale of the facility by itself is unlikely to yield a favorable price. Moreover, I believe this wafer fabrication facility is an essential part of the company's successful and profitable automotive business,” Perlegos said. I believe the far better strategy would be for the company to sell its automotive business in Germany as a stand-alone business, which I believe could be sold for approximately $400 million to $500 million after an appropriate restructuring. The automotive business' products have relatively long life-spans, often on the order of seven to ten years, and customers purchasing the products depend on the stability of that business and the expectation that they will not have to undertake the cost of requalifying their products as a result of a change in fabrication facility by Atmel. By endeavoring to sell the fabrication facility separate and apart from the entirety of the automotive business, I believe that current management may be harming customer relationships and destroying the possibility of a sale of the entire automotive business at a much more attractive price.”

Atmel's current management announced in December 2006 plans to sell fabs in North Tyneside, U.K. and Heilbronn, Germany, and reduce its headcount by 1,300 employees, as part of moves toward a fab-light business strategy.

The pace of change in the business is illustrated by a couple of recent deals. In the first, Infineon licensed its 130-nanometer basic CMOS process, as well as process technologies for RF and embedded flash for chip card and automotive applications, to recent arrival Hindustan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp.

In the second, ARC International sealed licensing agreements with several Asian semiconductor companies, including Fullhan Microelectronics, ARC's first publicly announced customer in China. Fullhan, which develops and manufactures H.264 video codecs, has taken a license for the configurable ARC 625D core to create systems-on-chip for a range of consumer electronics.

Not two years ago, ARC's CEO, Carl Schlachte, described China as a huge potential market.” But he replied, Scary, very scary,” when asked when ARC would license its intellectual property there. We're treading carefully there,” he said.

But now he's jumped in the pool, big time–made the leap of faith that one must make in a risk-taking business.

Five months ago, ARC took a radical step: It decided to waive up-front licensing fees in China. Competitors and detractors (often one and the same) said ARC had to do it because it had come late to the market. But ARC's move was more than a catch-up play. It was a recognition that the market is different in China–and it was a bet that not everyone is going to rip off your IP.

Arrow Electronics Inc. announced it is offering off-the-shelf development kits for industrial applications based on the Blackfin digital signal processor from Analog Devices Inc.

Under authorization from ADI, Arrow's North American Components business (Melville, N.Y.) will distribute PHYTEC Rapid Development Kits and phyCORE-BF337 single-board computer modules, which are geared toward designers of industrial control applications like factory automation, instrumentation, video security and medical appliances.

The PHYTEC development tools were designed by PHYTEC Technologie Holding AG to give system designers a running start at getting Blackfin-based industrial designs to market.

According to ADI (Norwood, Mass.), the 16/32-bit Blackfin DSP is designed to maximize performance and power efficiency in convergence” applications, such as those that require simultaneous processing of audio, video, voice and images.

SAN JOSE, CA—CodeSourcery, Inc. has announced the immediate availability of Sourcery G++ 4.2, a software development environment based on the GNU Toolchain and the Eclipse™ IDE with support for ARM®, ColdFire®, and Power Architecture™ processors.

Tokyo, Japan — Fujitsu Limited says it has developed the industry's lowest drive voltage Differential Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (DQPSK) LN optical modulator for 40 Gbits/s optical transmission systems. The LN optical modulators, developed jointly by Fujitsu Ltd. and Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd., feature an ultra-low 4.0-volt drive voltage for 40 Gbits/s DQPSK signals, making it suitable for use in commercial systems.
