Orlando, Fla. — Touting superior jitter performance, comparable to SAW-based devices, MtronPTI has introduced two new oscillator lines that feature the company's QiK Chip technology for a shorter two-week cycle time. These include the low-jitter M210x series of clock oscillators and the M310x series of voltage-controlled crystal oscillators (VCXOs) with frequencies from 150 MHz to 1.4 GHz.

With Fab 36 aimed at 65-nm design rules, Ruiz said AMD's 200-mm Fab 30 facility, where virtually all of AMDs microprocessors are currently made, may be used to make chip sets and processors needed for low-cost systems aimed at the developing world or for embedded systems.

Total investment in the Dresden fabs is expected to reach $5 billion this year, and subsidies from the German government and the state of Saxony will total about $500 million, said Hans Deppe, president of AMD Saxony.

If AMD continues to gain market share, Ruiz said it will need another fab in the 2008 time frame. Dresden again will be considered, but other locations also are possible, he added.

He said AMD plans to add about 600 jobs at Fab 36, and will employ a total of 3,000 workers here by 2006.

SAN JOSE, Calif. &#151 Chip-equipment vendor Novellus Systems Inc. missed Wall Street’s estimates amid disappointing gross margins and orders.

Novellus (San Jose) said sales for the third-quarter were $338.9 million, up 2.8 percent from $329.6 million in the second quarter of 2005 and down 18.5 percent from the third quarter 2004 net sales of $415.9 million.

Net income for the third quarter of 2005 was $23.4 million or $0.17 per diluted share, down $9.8 million or 29.5 percent from the second quarter 2005 net income of $33.2 million or $0.24 per diluted share and down $41.2 million or 63.8 percent from the third quarter 2004 net income of $64.7 million or $0.45 per diluted share.

The third quarter 2005 results include a net $8.6 million pre-tax charge primarily related to the company's decision to consolidate operations and streamline certain product offerings as announced on August 31.

RBC Capital Markets Inc. projected that Novellus would report revenues of approximately $320 million and EPS of $0.21. Novellus was expected to have a disappointing quarter due to order delays for the chip-equipment vendor (see August 31 story).

The brains of all three winning vehicles were identical, having been donated to Stanford and Carnegie Mellon by Intel, which permitted separate engineers to work with the rival teams. The computers used were six Pentium M processors, which were low power enough to run off the alternator in two of the three vehicles (H1ghlander had an auxiliary power generator supplied by Caterpillar Inc.). In-stead of laptops, the six Pentium M's were packaged as blades in a ruggedized platform designed to be earthquake proof (no spinning hard disks and a spike-resistant power supply). Each winning vehicle used one Intel 5091 chassis and six Intel MPCBL5525 processor blades.

The Grand Challenge was conceived in 2002 by Darpa director Anthony Tether. The first race, in March 2004, offered a $1 million purse. When no one finished, the purse was upped to $2 million. So far, Darpa has reported spending about $20 million to organize and promote the Grand Challenge program.

The agency has sponsored autonomous-vehicle research for more than a decade in hopes of meeting a Congressional mandate that one-third of all military vehicles be autonomous by 2015. Progress, however, has been so slow that Darpa decided to enlist outside help. Hence, the Grand Challenge.

All of the winners achieved something that the naysayers had said was impossible just a few years ago,” Intel's Bradski pointed out.

Previously, Darpa spent at least a billion dollars on autonomous-vehicle development,” he said, but in less than three years the Grand Challenge has surpassed all previous efforts. The Grand Challenge encouraged researchers to take the big risk, because it was OK to fail. As a consequence, we have made incredible progress. I predict that not only military vehicles, but also consumer vehicles, will start incorporating some of our discoveries within the next three to five years.”
