The financial results restated were for 2004 and the financial results for first quarter of 2005 were unaffected by the restatement and are unaltered from those previously reported (see May 9 story).

The GE team built large-area polyfluoren-based blue OLEDs on 6 x 6-inch glass substrates using the monolithic series architecture. The total area was divided into 144 emitting elements, measuring 1.2-cm2. The structure is configured as 12 rows connected electrically in parallel, with each row containing 12 elements connected in series. A 4-square-foot white-light demonstration panel was made by tiling 16 of these white-OLED devices together on a common substrate.

The resulting panel has an average luminance of 1,000 cd/m2. The efficacy and total lumen output equate to that of an 80-watt incandescent bulb, and the color quality for illumination exceeds that of fluorescent bulbs, the researchers said.

SAN JOSE, Calif. &#151 Troubled LTX Corp., a provider of semiconductor test equipment, announced it has secured a five-year, $60 million term loan from Silicon Valley Bank, the primary subsidiary of SVB Financial Group.

Silicon Valley Bank has been a valuable financial partner for LTX,” said Mark Gallenberger, chief financial officer, LTX Corp. (Westwood, Mass.), in a statement. This loan agreement enhances LTX's financial position and enables us to continue building LTX's market share and Fusion family of products.”

Last month, amid a string of losses, LTX said that orders rose 25 percent in its third fiscal quarter but continued to hold-off from publishing its full financial results as it conducts an investigation into an anonymous telephone call (see May 13 story).

New dual-band, ultra low power tuner enables TV on handheld devices. Industry's first single-chip tuner to support both US and European mobile TV broadcast networks Compliant with the DVB-H standard for mobile TV on handheld devices, the MT2260 tuner chip is sampling now with handset manufacturers

PLANO, T.X.—Signaling the next cutting-edge advance in its silicon TV tuner technology, Microtune, Inc. introduced a new family of high-performance, ultra-low power, multi-band tuners targeted for mobile handhelds, including cell phones, PDAs and other multimedia convergence devices. The new MT2260, the first member of the new Mobile MicroTuner family, is currently sampling with major handset manufacturers. When integrated into portable handheld devices, the tuner permits users to watch multi-channel broadcast TV with full-motion digital pictures and CD-quality sound.

As a strategic advantage to manufacturers, the device is the first single-chip tuner that currently enables handheld devices to operate across the networks allocated for mobile broadcast TV services in Europe (UHF: 470-890 MHz) and in the U.S. (L-Band: 1670-1675 MHz). The MT2260 is the first single-chip DVB-H tuner, sampling today, to support the U.S. frequency range. Because the tuner integrates all active radio frequency (RF) components on-chip, including the external low noise amplifier and balun, manufacturers can develop handset designs for world markets without the added expense and duplication of effort needed to develop band-specific devices.

The tuner is also fully compliant with the Digital Video Broadcast-Handheld (DVB-H) standard, an industry specification that enables the simultaneous transmission of multiple television, radio and video channels to mobile handheld devices.

Lee said Quartz-DRC has functionality equivalent to that of Mentor's Calibre or Synopsys' Hercules tools but that it provides that functionality in very different fashion: Quartz-DRC runs over distributed Linux networks in a way that's scalable over 50 or more CPUs.

LVS capability will be handled in a separate product, Quartz-LVS, slated for release later this year. Magma is working on design-for-manufacturability features for Quartz-DRC, but those aren't announced as yet. Extraction is handled separately by Magma's Quartz-RC product or by extraction products in third-party IC layout flows. Also missing is the wealth of foundry rule decks available for Mentor's Calibre. As of now, a TSMC 90-nanometer rule check is available for Quartz-DRC, and IBM has plans for 65-nm support, Lee said.

With its distributed processing capabilities, Quartz-DRC claims to run any design of any size within two hours — provided you throw enough CPUs at it. In one benchmark example, a 200 million-transistor graphics processor with a 13-Gbyte GDSII file ran in 1.5 hours on a network of 50 workstations. Magma claimed that tool X” took 44 hours in the same benchmark.

But if tool X was Calibre, Joe Sawicki, general manager of Mentor's design-to-silicon division, doesn't seem concerned.

The only reports we have on Quartz-DRC and -LVS are secondhand from individuals who are not using Calibre's performance features and who are trying to pass off apples-to-oranges benchmarks as valid comparisons of tools,” he said.
