Multiple Automated Scenario Test

The claiming host requests the domain, waits until thecooperative window expires, and then inhibits new domaininterrupts. At this point, the new host takes the buspre-emptively.

Following bus acquisition, the new host waits until the resetrecognition window (that window during which the switched boardsmay not yet have recognized the reset or power down request)expires. Then it enables interrupts, and executes the PICMG HAhardware and software connection sequences.

At the end of the hardware connection sequence, the new hostreceives ENUM signals for each board as it comes out of reset. Thedevices are then configured into the new system, following thenormal insertion sequence for Hot Swap I/O. Device drivers thendetermine if a download is required and continue operation as withany board insertion.

Tucked into this sleepy Midwestern town just outside Chicago, Molex Inc. is a true reflection of the global markets it serves. Flags from more than 20 nations hang in the center of the company's headquarters, where cubicles are filled with employees from Asia, Europe, and the Americas.

Besides its head-office location, however, there's nothing laid back about the component maker. Molex has a connector product for every imaginable electronic device, and a strategy that aims at narrowing its competitors' edge by plowing a whopping 20% of sales back into R&D and capital expenditures.

Its goal is to blanket the world with new products from plants in each regional market, selling them through electronic-components distributors and a growing team of salespeople in Europe and Asia.

With 51 manufacturing, sales, and engineering facilities, Molex is undoubtedly a global company.

Our reach is great,” said Fred Krehbiel, who steers the company with his brother, John. We're active in every industry, [and] we serve a broad range of customers from many different industries and from many different countries.”

An FCC official said ATSC is considering the narrow issue of whether 8-VSB is meeting its performance requirements. The official said the FCC couldn't re-jigger” the ATSC specification to include COFDM because it would throw off the FCC's table of channel allotments and create other problems.

A task force, newly formed within the ATSC to review the DTV signal reception problem, was scheduled to meet for the first time today (March 31). Mark Richer, ATSC's executive director, said that the group hopes to make recommendations to the ATSC's executive committee in six months, and to build consensus on the issue among ATSC and non-ATSC members. The meeting is open to anyone who has material interest in the subject.

While it's been said time and time again that it's a fools' game, making predictions is essential in any endeavor in order to plot some kind of path forward. In the case of the MobileHandsetDesignLine it's an essential part of my job that will help guide coverage over the coming months in order to provide the information that you, the designer, will need well in advance. Granted, some of those predictions may not come through, so feel free to pummel me this time next year. Of course, no need to stop here: feel free to pummel some of our other soothsayers in The Electronics Engineering Trends for 2007 Series

I go about this exercise by asking myself: Who's driving the market and what do they want to do with their mobile devices?” There was a time when the answer was the professional but right now it's the consumer. More specifically, impatient young consumers with an increasing thirst for anytime, anywhere connectivity, instant messaging, high-speed 'push-to-anything' capability, no-artifact video streaming, MP3 capability, massive storage needs with high-speed symmetric uploads/downloads and personalized features and functions with the 'My Xyz” moniker. Throw in CD-quality wireless stereo playback with accompanying headsets, multi-standard wireless networking connectivity, smaller size, increasingly attractive styling, lower cost and more intuitive interfaces and you get the picture: It's going to be an interesting year ahead for us all.

Identifying what people want—specifically&#151is half the battle. Samsung has risen to number two in the handset rankings in North America in part because it has identified those multi-level market needs and packaged them in style and with good engineering. Going forward, it sees even more specificity with increasing market stratification and diversification. It's all about delivering features and functionality as close as possible to the individual's needs. On the backend the resulting number of SKUs will skyrocket and create an inventory nightmare for operators, but on the front end it'll show that both Samsung and the operators are tuned to the needs of the market. It's this approach that I think will lead to Samsung taking the lead in handsets over Motorola in the U.S. in 2007.
