Like King Arthur's search for the Holy Grail, the U.S. quest to manufacture flat panel displays is a myth. The trail is littered with American FPD corpses -- and the vision of the future is blurred, if not illusory. The latest demise is field emission displays (FED) -- once the hoped-for jump-start to finally get America into the FPD world.

As if the DRAM industry didn't have enough turmoil what with consolidations and wild price fluctuations, attention is now being diverted by the ongoing spat between the Advanced DRAM Technology alliance and JEDEC over the future of double-data-rate (DDR) memory.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- A year ago at the 2001 Industry Strategy Symposium (ISS) here, there was good news and some bad news in the making for semiconductor equipment makers. Tool vendors were coming off record growth in the boom of 2000, but signs were building of a possible slowdown in 2001.

I certainly agreed with Robin Grey's comments regarding the value authorized distribution provides -- and has always provided --in the electronic component supply chain. I further agree that the doubts "some pundits and electronic supply chain entities" have expressed as to the role of authorized distribution in the 21st century have been put to rest. Indeed, the franchise distributor's obituary, like the news of
Closer Look: Intel consigns Rambus to a niche market

With the introduction of its 845D double-data-rate SDRAM chipset Monday, Intel Corp. closed the book on trying to dictate mainstream PC memory with Rambus. Yes, Intel will still support Direct RDRAM for its high-end workstations and desktops, but this is a niche market. From now on, not only has Intel jumped on the DDR bandwagon full force, but the new convert is now trying to drive the DDR parade.

As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
