S&P said it placed Fairchild on a double-B minus corporate credit, single-B subordinated debut, and double-B bank loan credit ratings with negative implications.

The Scotts Valley, Calif. disk drive maker chose those locations for three primary reasons – the people, the support it received from the local government and the infrastructure that was in place, Drennan said.

They have a strong secondary program and with the number of qualified workers, there was no need for us to invest in remedial classes. In many locations we moved to, we had to provide language or computer classes,” he said. They are committed to training and furthering their education. About 10% to 15% of the workforce at Seagate's Northern Ireland sites are enrolled in an advanced degree program. About 30% of the engineering team has advanced degrees in fields such as biotechnology, information technology and materials science.”

After breaking into the top spot in sales of desktop PC graphics chips, ATI Technologies Inc. has set its sights on the mobile graphics market as well.

Although 3D graphics have become virtually pervasive in desktop PCs, ATI's second-generation, 64-bit RAGE Mobility-M and -P chips will try to persuade OEMs that they need desktop-like 3D acceleration in laptops, instead of the basic 2D acceleration required to drive spreadsheets and business presentations.

ATI's newest Mobility-M chip integrates 4 megabytes of embedded SDRAM, with an external interface to up to 4 megabytes of additional DRAM. The core of the -M and -P is identical, but the -P chip forgoes the integrated memory for external SDRAM or SGRAM configurations up to 8 Mbytes.

For its part, ATI executives did not provide conventional performance metrics such as memory bandwidth, or the number of pixels and polygons the Mobility chips process per second. Instead, the company claimed 2D Winbench97 and 3DWinbench benchmark scores of 120 and 121 for the Mobility-P chip, respectively; the -M variation recorded 2D and 3D scores of 107 and 93, respectively, according to the company's own tests.

ATI's new announcements also mark the latest attempts by desktop 3D suppliers like S3 Inc. and Trident Microsystems Inc. to break into the mobile graphics space. To date, NeoMagic Corp. and Chips & Technologies Inc. –now owned by Intel Corp.–correctly targeted the 2D software used by business users, analysts said. Together with Trident Microsystems Inc., NeoMagic and C&T shipped 86% of the mobile flat panel controllers in the second quarter, according to Jon Peddie Associates, Tiburon, Calif. San Jose's Silicon Motion Inc. (SMI) also announced their second graphics controller for mobile PCs, the Lynx3D, last week.

NeoMagic's current MagicGraph 128AV, for example, provides 3D acceleration, but only in software. Does the notebook PC require the 3D performance of a desktop? No, it's not even close,” said Larry Chisvin, director of product marketing for NeoMagic Corp., Santa Clara, Calif.

Typical 3D business applications include Microsoft Corp.'s forthcoming Chromeffects, whose first incarnation will include 3D enhancements to Web browsing; plus 3D presentation plug-in software from Crystal Dynamics Inc.

A small rise in the production index, which registered 48.1 in October vs. 43.0 in September, helped drive the EBI up. But the monthly barometer still remained below 50, the figure that demarcates expansion and contraction in the electronics industry.

The index remains at a depressed level be-cause fewer than half of the respondents reported increasing orders, and the employment index continued to decline,” said Jim Haughey, EBN's staff economist. Historically, the employment index has served as a measure of sentiment on general economic conditions. Presumably, they are thought to be quite poor, currently.”

In the past several months, many electronic-component companies, particularly in the semiconductor industry, have cut their workforces in an effort to curb expenses. The cuts have gone so deep that employment in the U.S. electronic-component industry has declined by more than 1% in the past six months, according to Haughey.

The employment index fell to 42.6 last month, compared with 44.1 in September and 57.7 in October 1997.

While third-quarter profit figures were better than expected for many electronic-component companies, the beefier bottom lines were due mostly to cost-cutting measures, not to purchasers having increased orders.
