Compared to a year ago, Millipore's microelectronics revenues were up 7% from $77 million in the first quarter of 2000. Overall, Millipore's net revenues were $245 million in the first quarter of 2001 compared to $251 million in the fourth quarter. Sales were up 9% from Q1 of 2001. Millipore's net income totaled $32.4 million in the quarter, ended March 31.

We figure there's a mouse with every PC, which constitutes the OEM base or space where the mouse is bundled with the PCs,” Walters said.

This year an estimated 118 million PCs will be sold, an 8.4% increase over last year, according to Semico Research Corp., Phoenix. Semico estimates the PC market will grow about 10% in 2002, reaching about 130 million units.


Agilent and Cypress also intend to promote optical mouse products to retailers, which represents 30 million more mouse units per year, Walters projected.

The performance advantages of an optical mouse include the ability to operate on a desktop surface without a mousepad and the fact that the device doesn't gather dust in its mechanism and therefore doesn't need the cleaning a mechanical mouse does, he said.

EVERETT, Wash. — Intermec Technologies Corp. here today announced a new long-term partnership with Fairchild Semiconductor International Inc. to develop and manufacture radio-frequency identification (RFID) chips for future ID systems sold by Intermec.


The partnership is an offshoot of Fairchild's collaboration with IBM Corp. in the 1990s, when the two companies first developed radio-frequency ID technology. IBM sold its RFID operation to Intermec in December 1997, and Fairchild continued to supply components to the subsidiary of Unova Inc.

This agreement solidifies Fairchild's role as a high-volume manufacturer of the Intermec Intellitag chips,” said Jim Evans, vice president of marketing for Intermec's Intellitag unit.


The Intellitag tag consists of a chip and antenna. The tag is smaller and lighter than a postage stamp. Fairchild's chip contains EEPROM non-volatile memory, control logic and RF circuitry that extracts power from a radio field. This allows ID tags to receive and transmit data without batteries.

The new long-term pact between Intermec and Fairchild is aimed at supporting future applications with RFID systems that have long and high-capacity read/write ranges, and flexible tag selections for specific applications.

PrimeTime-SI includes an integrated delay calculation engine that accurately models and computes the signal timing deviation (speed-up or slow-down of nets) due to crosstalk. On customer evaluations, PrimeTime-SI's timing estimates correlated to within 5-10% of SPICE on most nets. In addition, PrimeTime-SI is integrated with the existing design flow and shares the same commands, scripts and libraries with PrimeTime.

SAN DIEGO–Applied Micro Circuits Corp. today announced it has developed its first high-speed networking devices using the Spatial Reuse Protocol (SRP) from Cisco Systems Inc. as part of a new technology roadmap for OC-48 and OC-192 Resilient Packet Ring (RPR) systems. AMCC and Cisco are teamed up in development of products in the roadmap.

The first product uses AMCC's framer and physical layer (PHY) technology in addition to Cisco's protocol, which is designed to provide efficient and dynamic mapping of bandwidth between various nodes on a ring network.

Cisco and AMCC said the RPR technology also protects traffic without allocating 50% of the ring bandwidth as standby bandwidth” usually found in normal Sonet rings. Instead, RPR allocates 100% of the bandwidth to working traffic and only reduces allocation on a node-by-node basis in protection circumstances, according to AMCC.

Networks built using RPR technologies will be inherently easier to manage and configure while saving substantial overhead costs for ISPs,” said John LoMedico, vice president of marketing for digital products at AMCC.


Revenue for the quarter was $2 billion, in line with the company's expectations, but down 9% from the $2.2 billion the company reported in the same period last year. Analysts expected the Huntsville, Ala., company to report revenue of $ 2.1 billion, according to Market Guide.
