But you need to date each other before you decide to get married,” summed up Brad Mattson, chief executive officer of Mattson Technology. Fremont, Calif.-based Mattson Technology is currently dealing with issues related to its three-way merger with Steag Semiconductor and CFM Technologies Inc. at the start of this year and the current downturn (see Jan. 3 story).

Richard Aurelio, chairman and chief executive of Varian based in Gloucester, Mass., said linking the two product lines creates natural synergies and provides more critical mass for the two firms to compete against much larger equipment rivals. More than that, it gives each the possibility of penetrating key chip customers they have never sold — Mattson at Intel Corp. and Varian at NEC Corp.

Analysts saw a good fit between the two companies. The alliance could strengthen both firms in joint development and marketing in critical process areas, such as photoresist stripping and implanting and annealing, suggested analyst Risto Puhakka, vice president at VLSI Research Inc. The San Jose-based analyst said even Applied Materials Inc. doesn't have an integrated solution in these areas.

The analyst also said a merger of Varian and Mattson might not work as well as the technology and marketing alliance they are forming. Both companies are doing a great job as independents. Trying to merge the separate companies might not be the wisest thing to do,” Puhakka added.

Aurelio said future cooperative efforts might include bringing in a lithography company to form a joint lab for end-to-end process development. Lithography is a critical step in many of our processes, and we need to work together. A lithography vendor would also benefit by working closely with us,” he added.

Aurelio said linking the marketing of the two companies wouldn't result in any staff reductions at either firm. In the downturn neither one of us has grown our staffs. However, each company should get increased leverage by joint marketing, especially with large customers,” he said.

Two US firms and a Japanese company are setting up a development centre to develop a way of building ultra-shallow junction transistor structures for the 70nm generation and beyond.

Varian Semiconductor, Tokyo Electron and the Verdant Technologies division of Ultratech Stepper will contribute techniques that aim to cut junction depths from 100nm to as little as 25nm. As gate lengths shrink, research has found that the depth of the junction and the channel between the source and drain portions of the transistor becomes critical to ensuring that the gate has enough control over electron flow.

Varian will work on pulse-plasma ion implantation, Tokyo Electron on thin-film deposition and Verdant will contribute laser thermal processing.

The models and tools generated from MaxCore will help in the exploration of different microarchitectures, accelerate the proliferation of our DSP architecture and effectively support the development of embedded software and complex SoCs based on the ST100 architecture,” said Jean-Claude Michalina, general manager of STMicroelectronics' DSP & Micro Division.

MaxCore can also automatically generate related embedded software development tools including disassemblers, assemblers and multiple integration packages from a formal processor description in the C-like LISA language.

SUNNYVALE, Calif.–Silicon Storage Technology Inc. here today reported sales in the second quarter dropped 39% to $62.7 million from the year-ago quarter, and 24% from the first quarter's $86.3 million.

Net profit for the second quarter fell 80% to $1.1 million, or 1 cent per share, from $5.4 million, or 6 cents per share, in the first quarter. And it represents a 95% decline from the $22.5 million, or $0.24 per share, reported a year-ago.

The quarter was difficult for SST due to the excess inventory situation and a continuing slowdown in new orders,” said CEO Bing Yeh. To control inventory levels, the company was able to work with our foundry partners to significantly reduce our wafer-start rate.”
