<p>The CohesionZone” architecture Convergent has designed for MSOs is centered on its ICS2000 voice gateway, upgraded with dense line cards, and with software support for TGCP and SIP (Session Initiation Protocol). An adjunct tandem proxy speaks CMS Signaling for tandem telephony applications, while a signaling gateway speaks SS7, for interface to standard circuit-switched phone systems.</p>

A team at the University of Mississippi has come across the effect, where sound waves sent into a lithium niobate crystal were suddenly emitted back, following a short pause.

It just doesn't look great on a resume.

Ron Wilson is a contributor to EE Times, where he manages the Silicon Engineering section. He has covered chip-related matters for 15 years for various industry publications, and was once, in the distant past, a designer himself.

This could only be called a rare year both for EEs and the industry. Salaries rose an amazing $6,200, or 7.4 percent above 2001 levels, in the United States, but the prolonged industry downturn and the sluggish national economy bore into almost every other aspect of professional life.

In 2002 bonuses got cut and salaries frozen, layoffs ran rampant and engineers' stocks continued to lose value.

Among U.S. respondents to the EE Times 2002 Worldwide Salary & Opinion Survey,” 401 said they experienced unemployment for some period this year. That's almost 7 percent of the 5,915 readers who answered this question, but the number might be skewed: Many of the jobless might not have had the opportunity to take the survey if they were eliminated from EE Times subscription lists as they left their employers.

American EEs are pessimistic about the industry's prospects for recovery, the state of the nation's economy, the stock market and corporate layoffs, and they are demoralized about working with downsized engineering groups and tighter budgets. And readers are anxious about the future of U.S. engineering jobs that they fear may be migrating overseas, where labor costs are lower.
