SAN JOSE, Calif. – OmniVision Technologies Inc., a supplier of CMOS image sensors, announced the purchase of approximately 850 image sensor-related patents and patent applications from Eastman Kodak Co. for $65.0 million in a cash transaction. The transaction was completed on March 31, 2011.
''The purchased patent portfolio comprises approximately 850 U.S. and foreign patents and patent applications. The intellectual property includes numerous granted patents of key CMOS technologies covering early and fundamental CMOS image sensor work; improvements on foundational architectures, including new features and functions; and next generation performance improvements, miniaturization and cost reduction technologies,'' according to OmniVision.
SAN FRANCISCO—Worldwide semiconductor equipment sales grew 143 percent in 2010 to nearly $41 billion as the market recovered from the industry slowdown of the previous two years, according market research firm Gartner Inc.
All major market segments grew significantly in 2010 with automatic test equipment (ATE) sales up by 149 percent, wafer fab equipment (WFE) sales up by 145 percent and sales of packaging assembly equipment (PAE) up by 127 percent, Gartner (Stamford, Conn.) said.
The semiconductor equipment market soared in 2010. Driven by the pent-up demand from the 2008 and 2009 downturn, and a stronger economy than projected, 2010 just kept getting better and better,” said Klaus Rinnen, managing vice president at Gartner. Memory and foundry spending were the key drivers, although all areas showed significant growth.”
Collectively, the top 10 semiconductor capital equipment companies increased market share by nearly 2 points in 2010, accounting for 63.4 percent of total revenue, according to Gartner.
Rinnen said 2010 saw a number of changes to the ranking of the top 10 semiconductor capital equipment companies, as strength in lithography double patterning benefited some companies more than others. Market-leading lithography vendor ASML Holding NV slipped passt Tokyo Electronic NV slipped past Tokyo Electron Ltd. to claim the No. 2 sport on the list, while rival Nikon Precision Inc. slipped to ninth place from sixth in 2009, according to Gartner (see chart below).
Applied Materials Inc., which has held the top spot in the semiconductor equipment market for more than 15 years, retained its No. 1 ranking again in 2010, according to Gartner.
Last week, VLSI Research Inc. issued its top 10 ranking of WFE suppliers. The lists contain some differences, at least partly because Gartner lumped ATE and packaging/assembly equipment vendors in with WFE suppliers.
Designed for the 3U PXI Express platform, the digitizers can stream at rates as fast as 700 MBytes/s and synchronize channels on multiple modules to within 160 ps resolution.
The digitizers work with NI LabView graphical design software for instrument control and automation, the NI LabWindows/CVI ANSI C software development environment and Microsoft Visual Studio .Net development tools for a wide range of programming options.
Engineers can program the digitizers using the NI-Scope instrument driver or the new LabView Jitter Analysis Toolkit, which offers a library of functions optimized for high-throughput, jitter, eye diagram and phase noise measurements.
SAN FRANCISCO—EDA vendor Mentor Graphics Corp. Monday (April 25) fired back at billionaire financier Carl Icahn, saying that Icahn is distorting the qualifications of his three nominees to Mentor's board of directors and exaggerating their relevance to the work Mentor does.
Icahn, who owns nearly 15 percent of Mentor through several entities he controls, has been pushing to replace three Mentor board members with his own nominees—Jose Maria Alapont, CEO of Federal-Mogul Corp.; Gary Meyers, former senior executive at Synopsys Inc. and former CEO of Synplicity Inc.; and David Schechter, manager of the Sargon Portfolio for Icahn Capital.
