Cornering a market?

Sounds like someone is trying to corner the market to me....get ahead and stay ahead by setting and owning the standard.  Clearly they think the demand will be there and others are asleep at the wheel, so to speak.

Damn, it's very late over there. OK. Let's chat Monday. Much appreciated. I will call you at the number you gave me. I am working on the Central time zone in the U.S.

I am in Japan this week and will be back in SJ on Monday.  Can we speak then?  If urgent, let me know how I can reach you.

This sounds sketchy. I am skeptical of Advantest (a maker of automated test equipment for the semiconductor industry) having much sway over power semiconductor standards. And Advantest has always been a tough nut to crack. In 15 years in this industry, I've always had a hard time getting someone from that company on the phone. I don't really get it. They seem to have no interest in out reach to the US media.

I apologize for this rather incomplete report. But I am hitting the wall here. Any light you can shed on this would be greatly appreciated while I continue to pursue the story.
