Embedded World, Nuremberg, Germany—Future Technology Devices International (FTDI) has launched its Vinculum VNC2 user programmable dual USB 2.0 Host/Slave intelligent SoC controller.

At that time, the company talked about a new strategy, dubbed the The Future Applied,” sources said. As part of the plan, Applied is shifting more and more of its ''footprint'' to Asia, according to sources.

In 2008, Applied said it planned to shift 19 percent of its jobs from Texas to Singapore, according to reports. At that time, Applied (Santa Clara, Calif.) had some 2,400 employees in Austin, Texas, where it has a manufacturing site. Over the next three years, some 350 to 450 of those jobs will move to Singapore

In late 2008, Applied broke ground for the construction of a new operations facility in Singapore. The facility will serve as a hub for Applied throughout Asia. The 32,000-square-meter facility is located in the Changi North Industrial Park.

Then, in October of 2009, Applied opened what it described as the largest non-government solar energy research facility in the world in Xi'an, China. Applied first broke ground in Xi'an in 2006, the company said. The total investment in the multi-phase project is more than $250 million dollars.

Now, it is expanding in Taiwan. The Tainan site's location and extensive supply chain in Asia will enable Applied to more rapidly meet the demands of its large base of display and solar customers in Asia, according to Applied.

SAN FRANCISCO—Apple Inc. plans to build at least 5 million units of its forthcoming iPad tablet in the first half of 2010, according to an analyst, who cited production checks.

Five million units of the iPad is good news for several chip suppliers, including Broadcom Corp., according to Craig Berger, an analyst with FBR Capital Markets & Co. Berger had previously estimated that Apple (Cupertino, Calif.) would build between 4 million and 5 million iPads in the first half of this year. The iPad is believed to utilize a Broadcom WiFi and Bluetooth transceiver combination solution like the iPhone 3GS.

FBR also increased its estimates for first quarter iPod and Apple PC builds. FBR now believes Apple will build 9.3 million iPods during the quarter, up from an earlier estimate of 4 million. It increased its estimate for Apple desktop PC builds in the quarter to 1 million, up from 500,000, and raised its Apple notebook build estimate to 1.7 million from 1 million.

But the latest checks revealed that Apple will build only about 6 million iPhones, down 20 percent from the 7.5 million that FBR previously estimated, Berger said.

Under the terms of the transaction, Mentor (Wilsonville, Oregon) said it has paid about 5.6 million shares of Mentor stock and $32.5 million in cash.

By acquiring Valor, Mentor said it enters the market for PCB systems manufacturing solutions and will be better positioned to overcome the long-standing technical barriers and inefficiencies between the worlds of design and manufacturing.”

Commenting on the acquisition, Henry Potts, vice president and general manager of the Systems Design Division of Mentor Graphics, declared: Valor's expertise and products in the manufacturing segment are an excellent fit to Mentor's in the PCB design area as together we provide a concept-through-manufacturing design solution to our customers.”

Potts continued: This acquisition will reinforce our number one position in PCB design while enabling Valor to leverage the strengths of Mentor and accelerate their delivery of differentiated design for manufacturing and manufacturing execution products.”

Valor (Yavne, Israel) provides productivity improvement software solutions for the printed circuit board manufacturing supply chain. Valor's solutions target three segments in the pc board manufacturing market: design of the physical layout of the pc board, fabrication of the bare pc board and assembly of pc board components.
