Subsequent issues of EBN's LinguaFranca will drill deeper into these and other issues, providing more details on Rosetta-Net strategy, implementation case studies, software tools, and more. Also, EBN will report on other pertinent standards, such as ebXML, cXML, xCBL, and organizations such as the Business Internet Consortium, detailing the impact they, too, are having on supply chains.

SHERMAN, Tex. — GlobiTech Inc. today announced shipments of its first epitaxial wafers to semiconductor manufacturers, which will use the epi-silicon substrates to fabrication CMOS chips with design rules under 0.18-micron feature sizes.

Texas startup claims to be the world's first dedicated CMOS epi-wafer foundry (see Feb. 18, 2000, story). GlobiTech said the first of two Class-1 cleanrooms is now fully operational in the company's new plant here. Each of those initial cleanrooms has 8,000 square feet of space.

GlobiTech said it achieved first silicon production in the plant on March 31, less than a year after breaking ground on the facility, which is located about 90 miles north of Dallas. Fab I is designed for 150- and 200-mm diameter wafers. Fab II in the plant is scheduled to become operational in later this year for 300-mm diameter epi substrates.

After final phase of the facility is completed and equipped at the end of 2002, the Sherman site will have an annual capacity of 6 million eight-inch (200-mm) wafer equivalents, GlobiTech said.

Epi wafers have a thin, single-crystal layer of silicon deposited on the surface of the substrate, which is used to fabricate active elements of devices. The epi layer provides higher levels of electrical characteristics compared to standard polished silicon substrates. Epi has fewer defects in the crystals than the bulk wafer material. Many major chip makers produce their own epi wafers for internal use, but more are opting to procure epitaxial substrates from outside sources to lower costs.

A natural distinction exists between polished wafer and epi wafer processes, leading to a logical evolution of the epi foundry model,” said Jerry Smith, president and chief executive officer of the Sherman-based startup. GlobiTech's epi service for IC houses allows them to free up valuable internal fab resources while focusing on other critical processes,” he added.

Some interesting trends have emerged to meet the never-ending quest for higher efficiency and lower power. There is a recent trend to mitigate the unsightly wall wort” or AC power adapter (even though it has seen significant improvement over the years through stricter efficiency standards, light-loading optimization techniques, or and standby modes.

Another way to power devices is to simply take advantage of existing communication lines and integrate power delivery right alongside the data. In many devices and market segments, we have seen the maximum transmitted power creep from ~5 Watts all the way up to 100W in several recent standards such as Universal Serial Bus (USB) Power Delivery and Power over Ethernet (PoE).

Philips currently manufactures handsets in a joint venture in Shenzhen, China, in which CEC holds a minority stake. The company said that CEC had agreed to increase its share in the venture to a controlling stake and buy additional manufacturing equipment from Philips, as well as acquire part of the company's R&D operations.

Philips' loss-making mobile handsets division was formed as a 60-40 joint venture with Lucent Technologies in 1997. It has reportedly drained about 850m euros from its parent and only once made an operating profit, in 2000.

By reducing the cost base drastically we will be able to realise market presence with greatly reduced exposure,” Philips' president and chief executive Gerard Kleisterlee said in a statement.

Contract manufacturer Sanmina, with 60 plants worldwide, said it expected the purchase of Alcatel's 320,000 square feet Texas facility, which employs 450 staff, to close in its quarter ending in September. Paris-based Alcatel, which announced plans to sell the facility in February to focus on design, said the deal includes a multi-year supply contract.

This move is part of Alcatel's strategic effort to focus resources on new product introduction and product integration,” said Mike Quigley, president of Alcatel Americas.
