<p>The ATR0842 is especially suited for blue laser diodes with 408-nm wavelength. The LVDS inputs for the three write channels allow fast and reliable output current control. The two identical outputs support currents of up to 500 mA. Rise and fall time is less than 0.8 ns. An on-chip RF oscillator reduces laser mode hopping noise during read mode.</p>

Another report, from the Albany Times Union, said that IBM would have six partners in the wafer fab project — Sony, Toshiba, Samsung, Infineon, AMD and Chartered Semiconductor.

The investment announcement was due to be made Pataki's annual state-of-the-state speech, the report said, citing a statement from the governor's office, as its source.

IBM, ASML and Albany Nanotech have worked together on the development of immersion lithography. IBM is working with Sony to develop a microprocessor called Cell” which as well as being the engine for Sony's Playstation 3, is expected to vie for dominance of the converged computing and consumer electronics market place. IBM has other processs technology research co-operation agreements with Sony, Toshiba, AMD, Infineon, Samsung and Chartered.

The plant is scheduled to begin operations in the second half of 2005, the reports said but did not make clear whether the fab would be wholly-owned by IBM or owned by a joint-venture company formed by the consortium.

The fab is expected to create 750 jobs directly with another 250 jobs created in related in research projects.

In return for creating up to 1000 jobs in New York state Pataki has promised the state will contribute $150 million. Other companies in the consortium include ASML Holding NV, Applied Materials Inc,. and Tokyo Electron Ltd., the report said.

Reuters said ASML has agreed to build its first major research facility outside Europe under the auspices of the scheme and that the center would receive $400 million from IBM and ASML.

Another $450 million would be allocated by IBM to establish a production line at Albany Nanotech, the report added.

Atmel Corp. has named real estate broker Binswanger/CBB (Philadelphia) as the exclusive agent for the sale of its 8-inch fab in Irving, Texas, which was shut down several years ago.

MANHASSET, N.Y. — SST (Silicon Storage Technology) Inc. announced Monday that revenue for the fourth quarter ending December would top out between $102 million and $108 million, compared with previous guidance of $120 million to $130 million.

SST (Sunnyvale, Calif.) attributed the revenue shortfall to lower than expected demand across all segments and decreasing average selling prices caused by industry-wide oversupply and increased competition.

In addition, SST expects to post an inventory charge of $20 million to $25 million for excess inventory and to write certain products down to their current estimated market values. As a result, fourth-quarter gross margin is expected to range from 1 to 3 percent, versus previous guidance of 28 to 32 percent.

SST also expects to record a non-cash charge of $5.5 million stemming from its October acquisition of RF chip supplier G-Plus, related to purchased in-process research and development. Loss per share on a GAAP basis is expected to range from 24 to 28 cents, versus previous guidance of 10 to 12 cents per share earnings.

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — Noting the increasing use of flex PCBs in applications requiring small form factors, Mentor Graphics Corp. has incorporated flex and rigid-flex PCB design capabilities into its Expedition and Board Station layout tools.
