PARK RIDGE, Ill. — Looking to regain its dominant position of three years ago, embedded market leader Wind River Systems, Inc. (Alameda, Calif.) said it has appointed Ken Klein as new board chairman and chief executive officer.

SAN JOSE, Calif. — There is supposed to be an impenetrable wall between financial analysts and their investment-banking counterparts to avoid conflicts of interests in which analysts might be pressured to report favorably on companies that would, in turn, give banking business to their firms.

In the past two years, however, incidents have surfaced in technology and other sectors that suggest that wall has big holes in it. One such case involves a high-profile EDA analyst, his former employer and one of the biggest names in the design automation business today: Synopsys Inc.

New information from a previously partially censored court document sheds new light on the world of investment banking and research – and on the analyst, Erach Desai, and his relationship in 2001 with Synopsys executives and with his own bosses.

Last year, regulators from the Massachusetts Securities Division began a widespread securities investigation into the practices of Credit Suisse First Boston's Global Technology Group. The well-documented investigation recently led to several penalties for CSFB – the most prominent of which was the indictment of CSFB investment-banking technology whiz Frank Quattrone for obstruction of justice and witness tampering. Quattrone's case ended in a hung jury earlier this month.

Regulators built their case against CSFB partly from Desai's testimony, which EE Times reported in October 2002. The Massachusetts Securities Division recently made previously omitted portions of that testimony public.

The Massachusetts Securities Division office subpoenaed Desai in early 2002, ordering him to describe his interactions with the investment-banking side of CSFB while employed as CSFB's EDA analyst from August of 1998 to October 2001.

In the first part of a deposition conducted in September 2002, Desai, then working as a consultant at Decisive Research Technology (Greenwich, Conn.), disclosed how he was pressured by software CEOs and by CSFB investment bankers to get banking business.

In the unedited version of the deposition, obtained by EE Times, Desai further describes how he believed former Synopsys CFO Brad Henske got him fired by using leverage from Synopsys' plans to acquire Avanti Corp. – a deal valued at more than $800 million that would eventually yield $10 million to $20 million for CSFB.

In the deposition, Desai said that Henske, who is now chief financial officer at accounting-software giant Intuit Inc., had a face-to-face meeting with CSFB investment bankers to discuss future business between the companies and requested Desai's presence. At the meeting, Desai said in the deposition, Henske spent 20 minutes explaining how Synopsys was not happy” with Desai's research coverage. Desai at the time had a Buy” rating on Synopsys.

AUSTIN, Texas — Faced with intolerable levels of wasted power in its microprocessors, Intel Corp. said that in 2007 it will make the switch to a high-k gate insulator, reducing current leakage at the gate by at least 100 times.


Die Bauelemente 93LC76A/B/C und 93LC86A/B/C benötigen eine Betriebsspannung von nur 2,5 V, bei einem aktiven Strom von 1 mA (standby 1 µA). Bei batteriebetriebenen Applikationen können der 93AA76A/B/C und der 93AA86A/B/C sogar noch bei 1,8 V eingesetzt werden.
