<p>The I2C Exerciser software allows users to non-intrusively listen to and record all I2C bus traffic while displaying real-time data in both state and waveform timing windows. By using the computer hard drive for trace storage, the software has virtually unlimited trace data recording capability.</p>

Qualcomm has been developing a vision for a design system to address the needs of 3D for several years,” stated Radojcic. We are delighted to see our vision, PathFinding, moving closer to reality through this collaboration.”

Indeed, Docea explained that AcePowerModeler automates the generation of power models from power figures and tables extracted from low level descriptions and from measurements. These models can be reused by architects at a higher abstraction level for much faster simulations allowing architectural exploration and optimization with no loss of accuracy.

The startup said AcePowerModeler has already been put out for evaluation with a select set of customers and is expected to be released in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Early 2010, Docea employed 12 people, and Kaiser said he expected the workforce to reach an objective of 20 people in 2010.

SAN FRANCISCO—Western Digital Corp., the No. 2 player in hard disk drives (HDD) for the past three decades, shipped a record 51.1 million units in the first quarter to take the top position among storage suppliers for the first time, according to market research firm iSuppli Corp.

Though Western Digital topped nemesis Seagate Technology LLC in unit shipments for the first time in any quarter, the company remained No. 2 in revenue during the quarter, with $2.64 billion, trailing Seagate's $3.1 billion, iSuppli said. Seagate shipped 50.3 million HDDs in the first quarter, iSuppli (El Segundo, Calif.) estimated.

Despite a second-place finish in shipment levels, Seagate's larger revenue total is attributed to its serving the high-end enterprise sector, which garners larger financial returns,” said Fang Zhang, analyst for storage systems at iSuppli, in a statement.

Overall, Western Digital finished the fourth quarter with a 31.3 percent market share in HDDs, compared with 30.9 percent for Seagate, iSuppli said.

Rounding out the top five firms in HDD shipments, Hitachi Global Storage Technologies Ltd. saw HDD shipments increase 13.9 percent in the first quarter to 28.7 million, while Toshiba/Fujitsu and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. registered sequential declines, according to iSuppli.

Zhang said Western Digital and Seagate will continue to battle head-to-head for the top position in HDDs. Which company will hold the top position in future quarters depends on several factors, including product competitiveness in the market, new product offerings, success in maintaining existing business while being able to penetrate new markets and capability to control demand and supply without jeopardizing or losing potential opportunities, Zhang said.

The new PLX trio includes the OXU3102, OXU3101 and OXU3100, which provide the highest performance of direct attached storage (DAS) products using the emerging USB SuperSpeed standard. USB SuperSpeed-enabled external storage peripherals are expected to drive demand for this new high-speed connectivity among PCs and peripherals.

PLX's new OXU3102 DAS controller, the flagship member of the family, targets the prosumer” (professional- and power-consumer) market segment and combines USB SuperSpeed's 5Gbps interface with dual high-speed SATA hard disk drive (HDD) ports.

The midrange OXU3101 for portable computing and desktops offers the same features but bridges to a single SATA HDD. Both the OXU3102 and OXU3101 feature integrated AES-256 encryption/decryption capabilities to ensure the highest level of data security. The entry-level OXU3100 provides the essential features for basic SuperSpeed-to-SATA designs.

Pricing: From $1.50 to $3.00 in large volumes. Availability: Sampling today and will be in full production in late Q3'10. Datasheets: OXU3102, OXU3101 and OXU3100.
