Bell Microproducts has also invested heavily in providing a comprehensive FPD program that includes full-custom integration, packaging, kitting, and complete design and bill-of-materials verification and test. Supported by four technical-marketing managers dedicated to display solutions, Bell Micro's 34,000-square-foot FPD facility also houses a lab where display specialists can do testing, design and bill-of-materials verification, prototyping and demos of any panel.

Synopsys said it also is buying technology behind C Level Design's System Compiler software for RTL-C synthesis as well as a patent for synthesizing high-level languages into HDL.

The Mountain View design automation giant said the transaction will not include any products, service businesses, customer agreements, or other assets and liabilities of C Level Design. Campbell, Calif.-based C Level Design will discontinue sale and support of all products and services. Terms of the transaction were not released.

Synopsys said the CycleC simulation technology will complement its recently introduced DirectC interface within in the VCS simulator. This will provide customers with faster cycle-accurate simulation performance when using a mixture of Verilog and C++ languages, said the company.

The addition of the CycleC technology will benefit customers by making it easier to accelerate their VCS simulations using cycle-accurate C and C++,” said Manoj Gandhi, senior vice president and general manager of the Verification Technology Group at Synopsys.

CHANDLER, Ariz.– Amkor Technology Inc. here today announced it will offer faster turnaround times for assembled chips in quad flat no-lead (QFN) packages as a result of a new saw-singulated process, which has been installed in the company's Philippines facility.

Saw-singulated QFN packages will conform to JEDEC M0220/229 specifications, ranging in size from 2-by-2 mm to 10-by-10 mm. These packages will accommodate die sizes from 0.25 mm2 to 10.2 mm2 , and they can be manufactured with four different lead finishes, including NiPd, SnPb, SnBi and Matte Sn, said Amkor.

Initial volume production will be based on a redesigned Amkor MicroLeadFrame matrix, which is dedicated for saw singulation of devices. The company said this design will enable increased density of devices per area of the lead-frame strip. Amkor said it plans tol provide punch singulation and saw singulation of the QFN packages.

Now customers can benefit from both a reduced time-to-market facilitated by the saw-singulation process and a broad array of assembly and test services offered by our Philippines factories,” said Sean Crowley, vice president of advanced leadframe products. QFN packages have gained broad use in wireless communications products, handheld computing devices and handheld instruments, in particular.”

SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Aiming to step up the pace in portable PC processors, Advanced Micro Devices Inc. today rolled out a speedier 1.2-GHz mobile Athlon 4 microprocessor and a new 950-MHz mobile Duron chip. Both processors contain power management functions and features for Microsoft Corp.'s Windows XP operating system.

SAN JOSE, Calif. — EDA tool vendors need to work with users and each other to help IC designers innovate and the EDA industry grow, according to Mark Santoro, director of hardware engineering for Juniper Networks Inc., in keynote at the EDA Front-to-Back Conference.

Santoro's background includes stints as a tool user and as an executive for an MPU design house and tool provider, Micro Magic Inc., where he was chief executive officer. The company was purchased by Juniper in December 2000 for $260 million.

Once again a user and buyer of tools in his position at Juniper, Santoro said he is frustrated by EDA companies' failure to work together to solve design problems.

An overwhelming majority of EDA companies today are fighting over a piece of the [EDA market] pie,” said Santoro, who said 45 percent of the pie is comprised of synthesis tools, 45 percent of place and route tools, and 10 percent of other tools. What will happen if EDA companies continue to fight over the slices of that pie? Someone will drop the whole. Someone will get pie all over their face.”

Tools suppliers should instead bake another pie or two, Santoro said, and innovate in areas that have not been adequately addressed. High-speed digital design tools, analog tools and RF tools badly need innovation, he said.
