The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has drafted conditions that will allow the transportation and use of fuel cells on board passenger airliners.

The action came during a two-week meeting of the ICAO Dangerous Goods Panel in Montreal. The panel is still finalizing its meeting results for approval by the ICAO Air Navigation Committee, but the draft language allows the transportation and use of fuel cells using butane fuel cells, formic acid fuel cells, direct methanol fuel cells, and reformed methanol fuel

When ScanSource's Catalyst Telecom division signed a major distribution agreement with Juniper Networks recently, it represented a crucial piece to Catalyst's networking-solutions puzzle.

For some time, Catalyst had been searching for a vendor that could provide complementary networking gear to be featured alongside the technologies from its other top vendor partners: Avaya's VoIP technology, Polycom's video products, and Extreme Networks' data-networking hardware and software. The distributor found what it was looking for with Juniper's product set, which features IP networking and security platforms.Read More...

Intel released its dual-core Xeon processor for high-end servers with some extra benefits for high-performance computing.

The Santa Clara, Calif.-based microprocessor maker started shipping the parts, formerly code-named Paxville MP, last week to system builders. Developed for servers that use four or more sockets, the processors use a dual 667MHz independent front-side bus for more throughput to the system’s chipset, a gateway to memory and I/O functions.

In Intel platform design for multiprocessors, two dual-core processors share the dual front-side

SAN FRANCISCO — Korean wafer foundry DongbuAnam Semiconductor Inc. and EDA giant Synopsys Inc. have jointly developed a reference flow for DongbuAnam's 130-nanometer process, the companies said Friday (Nov. 4).

Synopsys (Mountain View, Calif.) collaborated with DongbuAnam engineers to develop an optimized 130-nm RTL-to-GDSII design flow, named DAS Ref 130.1, based on Synopsys' Galaxy Design Platform, the companies said. The result is an easy-to-adopt reference flow, which addresses key 130-nm design challenges such as power management and signal integrity closure, according to

The move to the 45 nm process node will be costly and challenging, but worth it for selected applications, according to panelists at the EDA Tech Forum here Thursday (Nov. 3).

Moderated by Wally Rhines, Mentor Graphics CEO, the panel was entitled "The road to 45 nm, a highway to hell?" But that wasn't the panel's conclusion. Despite steep design and fabrication costs, panelists were generally optimistic about the ability of EDA and foundry providers to come up with solutions, and of

SAN FRANCISCO — Aldec Inc. has released a new version of its Active-HDL 7.1 FPGA and ASIC design entry and verification platform, including several new tools.

Aldec (Henderson, Nev.) said new tools found in the release include ultra-high speed gate-level simulation technology (SLP), VHDL and Verilog linting tools, improved support for Matlab and Simulink and new SystemVerilog simulation support.

According to Aldec, the SLP simulation acceleration technology employs a completely re-designed simulation engine that dramatically reduces simulation run times for

A consortium led by the University of Delaware (UD) on Wednesday (Nov. 2) said that it could receive nearly $53 million in funding — with the bulk of the money coming from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa) — to more than double the efficiency of terrestrial solar cells within the next 50 months.

The technology hopes to bring solar energy for soldiers on the battlefield. It is also aimed for commercial applications as well.

The University’s Consortium for

The sun is finally setting on MCI as the storied telecommunications Thursday filed what is expected to be its final financial report. The firm, in the process of being acquired by Verizon, swung to a profit of $271 million, although its revenue dropped by 12 percent to $4.47 billion in the quarter ended Sept. 30.

Verizon’s acquisition of MCI was approved by the U.S. Justice Department last week and by the Federal Communications Commission this week and the company said the merger

A little-known group called CMD International (Tianjin) Electronic Co. Ltd. has broken ground on a large-scale semiconductor and R&D project in Tianjin, China, with claims that it will build both 200- and 300-mm fabs in that nation. The fab project is still in the very early stages, however.

Over the next five years, CMD claims that it will build a plant to produce 200- and 300-mm CMOS chips, a gallium-arsenide (GaAs) integrated circuit fab, and an R&D center for related products. The

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — With classical scaling dead and Moore's Law no longer relevant to device performance, the time is now for design-for-manufacturing (DFM) to "come of age," according to Bernie Meyerson, vice president and chief technology officer of IBM's Technology group.
Speaking to a large audience attending the EDA Tech Forum 2005 event here Thursday (Nov. 3), Meyerson preached the need for "highly advanced risk mitigation," whereby DFM capabilities provide a unified yield model generating a "net yield statement," giving manufacturers
