Frans van Houten, CEO von Philips Semiconductor, und Gerard Kleisterlee, President und CEO von Philips Electronics, haben angedeutet, dass Philips durch die Ausgliederung seines Chipgeschäfts an Größe gewinnen wolle. Behält Merrill Lynch Recht und Philips Halbleitergeschäft und Freescale gehen zusammen, könnten diese Äußerungen ein erster Hinweis gewesen sein, hinter dem der Wunsch nach mehr Wirtschaftlichkeit steckt.

SAN FRANCISCO — Cadence Design Systems Inc.'s board of directors has approved a plan to repurchase up to $500 million of the company's common stock, Cadence said Friday (Feb. 10).

The board approved the plan Wednesday, Cadence (San Jose, Calif.) said. The repurchase is authorized to begin immediately, the company said. Cadence said the repurchase program would be carried out in addition the approximately $3.9 million remaining from a previous stock repurchase authorization.

The repurchased shares will be used for general corporate purposes, the company said, and share repurchases under this authorization may be made in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. The timing and actual number of shares repurchased will depend on a variety of factors including price, corporate and regulatory requirements and other market conditions, Cadence said.

LONDON — January sales performance at foundry chip supplier United Microelectronics Corp. lagged behind that at rival Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd. both in terms of growth. UMC’s January sales showed year-on-year growth of 17.8 percent compared with TSMC’s year-on-year growth of 25.6 percent.

UMC achieved sales revenue in January of NT$8,407 million (about $260 million) down 6.8 percent from its sales of NT$9,018 million (about $280 million) in December 2005 and up 17.8 percent from January 2006.

Sales for January are usually down on the preceding month but UMC’s year-on-year increase lagged behind the 25.6 percent rise achieved by rival foundry in January 2006 over January 2004. However, the year-on-year increase was big jump from the 1.5 percent year-on-year increase reported by UMC for December 2005 over December 2006.

LONDON — Simulations show that the ARM996HS processor core, touted as the electronics industry’s first commercially available clockless processor core, could cut power consumption to nearly one third of that of a similar clocked processor core from ARM Holdings plc.

Although the absolute attainable performance of the clockless core lags behind that of a synthesible ARM968E-S, at equivalent performance the ARM996HS consumed a factor of 2.8 less power than the ARM968E-S, or 36 percent, according to simulation benchmark data from Handshake Solutions, the Philips Electronics subsidiary working with ARM (Cambridge, England) on the asynchronous processor project. The ARM996HS current peaks are reduced by a factor 2.5 to 40 percent of the ARM968E-S, the data showed. The ARM996HS has a gate count of 89,000 compared with the 88,000 of the ARM968E-S. Both are based on the ARM9 processor and the ARMv5Te instruction set.

Helping design simple-to-use products are better than competing in a scenario where it is merely the survival of the fittest,” he pointed out, giving the example of Apple’s iPod.

ARM believes in re-use as device evolution gets even faster. A platform of standard processors helps cut design cycle time. Having delivered 1.67 billion SoCs in 2005 indicates that products such as ARM’s are the way to go,” said Atul Arora, president, commercial operations, ARM India.

Cypress Introduces The World’s Highest Throughput Dual-Port Interconnects

New FullFlex dual-port interconnects deliver speeds up to 250 MHz,72-bit bus width, DDR capability, and buffering up to 36Mb

SAN JOSE, Calif.—Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (today introduced a family of the world's highest throughput dual-port interconnects. The new FullFlex devices offer a maximum throughput of 36 Gbps, 150 percent higher than the nearest competitor. They are the industry's first to be fabricated using 90-nm process technology and are ideal for applications with advanced processing needs, such as those in the wireless, image processing, instrumentation, and SAN/WAN markets.
