<p>Working with Starc, which prepared standard libraries, Aspla developed generic and low-power processes in 2003 and launched Aspla's shuttle service the same year. Multiple customers could share one of the service's reticles to lower prototyping costs.</p>

This past summer was a busy one for RightNow Technologies (Bozeman, MT). During that time, the company debuted several products, including the latest release of its customer relationship management (CRM) suite.

**** Innovative Silicon Inc. (Lausanne, Switzerland) is a 2002 start-up founded by Pierre Fazan (CEO) developing SOI-based single-transistor memory reportedly denser than DRAM.

*** Inovys Corp. (Pleasanton, Calif.), a supplier of automatic test equipment (ATE) raised $16.3 million dollars in Series C finance in February 2004. First customer is Motorola.


* InPhase Technologies Inc. (Longmont, Colorado) was founded in December 2000 as a spin-out from Bell Labs research, with the objective of becoming the first company to bring holographic data storage technology to market.

**** Kilopass Technology Inc. (Sunnyvale, Calif.) was founded in early 2001 to develop and market non-volatile memory technology, manufactured in CMOS logic manufacturing processes. Announced first round venture capital funding in January 2004.

** Luminescent Technologies Inc. (Mountain View, Calif.), is backed by Sevin Rosen Funds and developing a line of RET software products for use in optical proximity correction (OPC) and phase-shift photomask (PSM) applications.


** Luxtera Inc. (Carlsbad, Calif.) A fabless semiconductor company formed in 2001. claimed to have devised a 10-gigabit-per-second optical modulation device, based on a standard CMOS fabrication process.

The asterisks by each name show the number of iterations of the Silicon60 list on which that company has appeared.

** Micromem Technologies Inc. (Toronto) After five years in research and development, claimed it has come one step closer in producing an MRAM for use radio-frequency identification (RFID) applications.

At the same time, TXP purchased a hefty ration of software tools to beef up its board design and testing capabilities.

That investment has been yielding results, enhancing TXP's offering to a wide range of customers, according to company executives.

PCB layout is really where DFM starts,” said Michael Shores, co-founder and general manager of TXP. Now we're able to do it completely in-house, so we've evolved more on the IP [intellectual property] development side.”

TXP's unique service model has been steadily winning over converts that previously outsourced NPI to an EMS provider but either didn't like having production locked in at one contract manufacturer or felt they weren't getting the right kind of support at the prototype level.

The next step, Shores hopes, is to persuade multi-project customers to standardize on the TXP model. While OEMs like Hewlett-Packard Co. have multiple groups that work with TXP, each one is like a unique customer.

Fusion Agent Portal is built on the same underlying technology as Jacada’s earlier Fusion product. Both tools start from a simple premise: that there are too many applications cluttering up the agent’s screen, clamoring for attention. When agents are forced to switch between applications, they risk wasting time and introducing errors.
