The nature of the help is changing as well. Increasingly, clients aren't looking for a contractor to solve a specific problem,” said Zaiq's chairman, Rich McAndrew. They are looking for a partner who will see them all the way through this product's life cycle, and use that experience to help even more on the next one.” That's a call for stability, and for size. And it's as good a statement as any of the trend that is gradually transforming the design-services business into one dominated by really large players.

We haven't seen anything like this for a number of years,” said Jan DuPreez, president of Infineon Semiconductor America, San Jose. DuPreez said Infineon made no changes to its marketing behavior” that would have accounted for the price jump, and attributed the rise to an imbalance in supply as [DRAM] producers transition from 0.18-micron to 0.15- and 0.14-micron processes,” which typically have lower initial yields.

Whatever the reasons, the run-up failed to trigger a market stampede. Grant Johnson, an analyst at online component exchange Converge Inc., predicted that by the week of Nov. 19, 128Mbit SDRAM prices will be back to where they were at the beginningof the month. The only way a price increase is going to be sustained is when demand picks up.”

While some configurations of 128Mbit SDRAM were affected this week, other versions used mostly in other applications saw little change. Spot prices for 32 x 4 128Mbit SDRAMs, popular in graphics applications, remained steady at $1.50 to $1.60, where they had been for a week or more. Meanwhile, 128Mbit DDR SDRAMs, which are only now starting to show up in the spot market, sold at a premium $2 level. And next-generation 256Mbit SDRAMs continue to be in tight supply as demand ramps quickly, and were listed on the spot market at $3.50 to $4.

SAN MATEO, Calif. — Best known for core network routers, Juniper Networks Inc. (Sunnyvale, Calif.) is moving into the cable-access market with the planned acquisition of Pacific Broadband (San Jose, Calif.), a maker of cable modem termination systems (CMTS), for roughly $200 million in stock.

Juniper said it will use the acquisition to move Internet Protocol routing to the cable market and to strengthen its position in edge and access networks. It's the next opportunity and the next logical move to us,” said Scott Kriens, Juniper's chairman, in a conference call with press and analysts.

The companies expect the deal to close by the end of the year.

The acquisition follows Juniper's strategy of expanding into an adjacent space,” as opposed to acquiring rampantly, said Michael Howard, principal analyst with Infonetics Research. It's a smart acquisition by Juniper in order to expand into the cable space and start taking some market share there.”

Until now, Juniper's product line consisted of five routers built from the same basic architecture. Juniper has acquired only four companies in five years of existence — a snail's pace next to Cisco Systems Inc.'s acquisition-per-month tendencies. But Juniper has begun to diversify, having struck a deal with Ericsson roughly a year ago to develop 3G networks.

Pacific Broadband will thrust Juniper into a CMTS market dominated by Cisco and populated by startups, including RiverDelta, which was acquired by Motorola Inc. in October, and Broadband Access Systems, which was acquired by ADC Telecommunications Inc. last year.
