The architecture is also designed so that wireless transmissions on a sensor network are significantly reduced to further cut energy use.

Laird Technologies' LT2510 is a fifth generation 2.4GHz FHSS module that sets the standard for industrial RF communication. Based on its established proprietary FlexRF technology and operating in the globally available 2.4GHz spectrum, the LT2510 is optimized to outperform conventional wireless standards.

Wireless standards always involve a degree of compromise in that they have difficulty meeting extreme levels of performance requirements,” said Nick Hunn, Advanced Technology Director of Laird Technologies. The LT2510 is optimized to deliver outstanding performance in terms of range or power consumption, taking it beyond the bounds of the standards-based offerings, while maintaining a competitive cost.”

Embedded with Laird Technologies' robust server-client protocol, the LT2510 permits each module to communicate with any other in-range module for true peer-to-peer operation. 'Out of range' modules can be reached via a meshing topology. The configuration and test software enables OEMs to structure and optimize networks to suit their application.

Enhanced API commands provide packet routing control and network intelligence. With its field-proven FHSS air interface protocol, the LT2510 rejects RF noise, excels against multipath scenarios, allows for co-located systems, and provides a reliable communication link.

With over 150 Kb/s throughput in half-duplex mode, the LT2510 delivers speedy data rates. In addition, variable output power options (up to one watt) enable communication over distances that are not achievable with competing technologies. A range of ultra-low power modes, plus low TX/RX power consumption, make the LT2510 ideal for power-restrictive or battery-operated applications. The SMT package is well-suited for space-constrained designs and is available in pick-and-place packaging for volume manufacturing.

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Citing the IC downturn, Gartner Inc. has cut its forecast for the semiconductor assembly and test services (SATS) market.

And the forecast keeps falling, with a downturn projected in 2009. Just six months ago, the research firm projected that the SATS market would grow 4.1 percent in 2008 and jump 14.1 percent in 2009.

In its last forecast, the research firm projected that the SATS market would grow 3.8 percent in 2008 and jump 6.5 percent in 2009. Now, in the current forecast, the SATS market is expected to grow 1.6 percent in 2008, but the sector will fall 4 percent in 2009, said Jim Walker, an analyst with Gartner, in a newsletter.

Complex software was absolutely not” an issue for Ambric, Bubb said. Software has been our forte,” he added.

Among the company's other assets, Ambric has a portfolio of broadcast video codecs including software for Panasonic's AVC-Intra and Apple's ProRes as well as algorithms for medical imaging and wireless processing. The company has been granted six patents and has 25 in process.

SAN FRANCISCO—There are more than 550 fabless semiconductor companies competing in China today, but at least 100 of them will disappear within two years, according to market research firm iSuppli Corp.

Many companies presently are seeking buyers and a total of four companies already have been acquired by foreign semiconductor firms during the past 12 months,” said Vincent Gu, China research analyst at iSuppli (El Segundo, Calif.) China's fabless IC industry is polarized with about 50 companies achieving success and the remainder struggling to survive.”

Most of China's fabless companies are young and small, iSuppli said, and more than 88 percent will generate less than $10 million in revenue during 2008.
