Great riches have resulted from the smaller, better, faster electronics that have been made possible by semiconductors over the past half-century. Those who traditionally worked to minaturise electronics are now looking to other applications for new business opportunities. A few have already managed to make new businesses in sensor and other micro system technologies – accelerometers for airbag deployment, inkjet cartridge parts, thin-film heads for hard disks, structures for microphones and so on. Business constellation These new applications move beyond electronics to mechanics, optics, chemistry, biology, electomagnetic field detection . . . The new business – or perhaps more accurately the new constellation of businesses – faces many challenges. These include building new standards and new industrial consortiums and organisations. Technical challenges include finding the most suitable packaging and test strategies for sensitive, delicate devices that must also interact with their environment. Newsletter for a changing world Our new OptoMEM newsletter plans to chronicle these developments and promote the commercialisation of these exciting products.

Japanese researchers have fabricated transparent field effect transistors (Science, May 23, 2003). The electron channel material used was InGaO3(ZnO)5, a single-crystalline thin-film oxide semiconductor. Amorphous hafinium oxide was used for the insulating gate material. The on-to-off current ration was 1E6 and the field-effect mobility was 80cm2/V/sec at room temperature. Use of such clear transistors is foreseen in optoelectronics.

Ellipsiz Engineering Solutions arm has been contracted to supply a total utilities solution to Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing (ASMC) of Shanghai, China. ASMC is a joint venture foundry between the Chinese government and Philips Electronics. The multi-$mn contract charges the Facilities and Service Business unit of Ellipsiz Engineering Solutions to provide a full range of utilities construction, covering the integration of all process tools for Fab 3, ASMCs new 200mm fab. The facility will be capable of 0.18micron processing. Ellipsiz support will include anticipating and resolving field installation problems, sub-fab sub-unit layout management, hook-up protocol and procedures and post-hook-up services. This is Ellipsiz first facility-based project in China.

STMicroelectronics has bought the assets and business of Incard from IPM Group. The transaction between ST and IPM Group includes a cash consideration of EUR75mn for the purchase of Incard. According to Gartner Dataquest, the Italian-based Incard was the sixth largest smartcard maker in the world in 2002 with particular strength in the telecom market. Incard has a manufacturing facility located in Marcianise, Italy. The company has some 290 employees, a large number of whom are technical experts working in R&D, product development and application support. Incard has a wide product range of cards, software and development kits covering several smartcard applications, with a special emphasis on telecom prepaid cards and SIM modules.
