Imagine life today if the integrated circuit had never been invented: no personal computers or Internet,no cell phones, no satellite weather maps, no Mars rovers. The IC has generated applications that were never imagined circa 1959, when Jack Kilby at Texas Instruments and Robert Noyce at Fairchild Semiconductor separately filed for patents on it. The basic invention took off on its own and created a highly unpredictable race course for technology in general.

Despite the modest loss, industry analyst Jonathan Koh of UOB Kay Hian Securities said the company's performance exceeded expectations” and was a sign the firm was finally getting some synergy from the merger” that created it last August, when Singapore's ST Test and Assembly Services and U.S.-based ChipPAC joined forces in a deal worth $1.2 billion.

The company is growing its business without significantly increasing its costs,” Koh said. The [fourth quarter] guidance is surprising, but it does seem to be attracting more customers and looks set to ramp up production.”

On Oct. 26, UTAC posted record profits of $10.5 million for the third quarter, almost tripling its earnings year-on-year. The firm expects its profits to rise up to 15 percent by the end of 2005.

Koh attributed the company's strong growth to its very good set” of memory and mixed signal offerings.

UTAC is gaining market share in both; the memory side is doing very well. It has capacity constraints but there's also quite a good flow of customers on the mixed signal side, especially in MP3s and Bluetooth,” he added. We expect the company will do even better in Q4 as it always delivers on its guidance.”

Terence Wong, chief investment analyst at SIAS Research, said the results showed both firms were on the mend” after mergers that took an initial toll on shareholder value.

There's a rising tide [in the industry] that's lifting all boats,” he added, All of it driven by the consumer sector.”

Santa Cruz, Calif. — Pity the IC failure analysis expert. While scan test data provides a starting point for diagnosis, isolating fault locations and identifying defect types is tough. Mentor Graphics Corp. promises to simplify that process this week with the release of its YieldAssist diagnostic tool.

After taking in gate-level netlists, test pattern sets and failure files from manufacturing test, YieldAssist generates reports that identify and classify suspect defect types. Users can view the defects in chip layouts using Mentor's Calibre results viewing environment (RVE). The end result, Mentor claims, is yield improvement, possibly through better design rules that filter back to the IC design environment.

For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2005, revenue totaled $181.4 million compared to $181.0 million for fiscal year 2004. The net loss for the year ended September 30, 2005 totaled $38.1 million or minus $1.04 per diluted share compared to a net profit of $3.5 million or $0.10 per diluted share in fiscal year 2004.

LONDON — Aixtron AG, a provider of deposition equipment, blamed weak capital spending, particularly in its traditional compound semiconductor domain, for its net loss of 7.1 million euro (about $8.5 million) on revenues of 29.1 million euro (about $35.1 million) in the third quarter of 2005.

Aixtron (Aachen, Germany) said semiconductor capital spenders were likely to remain cautious through the rest of 2005 and into early 2006 and reduced its guidance for full year revenue from a range of between 150 million euro (about $180 million) and 160 million euro (about $193 million) to a point nearer to 140 million euro (about $169 million).

The company’s quarterly revenue was down significantly from 44.4 million euro (about $53.3 million) in the second quarter of 2005 and down slightly from 30.0 million euro (about $36.2 million) in the third quarter of 2004.

As a result revenues from silicon semiconductor business contributed 32 percent to total revenues in the third quarter of 2005 as they did in the second quarter of 2005 (15.6 million or 35 percent euro).
