SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - May 4, 2017) - GSI Technology, Inc. ( : GSIT) today reported preliminary financial results for its fourth fiscal quarter and fiscal year ended March 31, 2017. For the year, the Company reported a net loss of $(115,000), or $(0.01) per diluted share, on net revenues of $48.2 million, compared to a net loss of $(2.2) million, or $(0.10) per diluted share, on net revenues of $52.7 million in the fiscal year ended March 31, 2016. Gross margin was 54.8% compared to 50.7% in the prior year. Total operating expenses in fiscal 2017 were $26.9 million compared to $29.8 million in fiscal 2016. Research and development expenses were $15.8 million in fiscal 2017, compared to $12.1 million in the prior fiscal year, and selling, general and administrative expenses, which included litigation-related expenses, were $11.1 million, compared to $17.7 million in fiscal 2016. Litigation-related expenses in fiscal 2017 were minimal at $142,000, down substantially from $6.7 million in fiscal 2016. The litigation-related expenses were incurred primarily in connection with a commercial and trade secret lawsuit against United Memories, Inc. ("UMI") and Integrated Silicon Solutions, Inc. ("ISSI"). As previously reported, the trial of the UMI/ISSI litigation concluded on November 25, 2015 with mixed results, and appeals of the case remain pending. Expenses related to patent infringement and antitrust litigation involving Cypress Semiconductor, which was settled in May 2015, also contributed to fiscal 2016 expenses. The Company reported a net loss of $(1.3) million, or $(0.07) per diluted share, on net revenues of $10.4 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, compared to a net loss of $(87,000), or $(0.00) per diluted share, on net revenues of $12.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 and net income of $348,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, on net revenues of $11.5 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2017, ended December 31, 2016. Gross margin was 56.4% compared to 50.3% in the prior year period and 56.6% in the preceding third quarter. Total operating expenses in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 were $7.4 million, compared to $6.3 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 and $6.3 million in the preceding third quarter. Research and development expenses were $4.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, compared to $3.4 million in the prior year period and $3.8 million in the preceding third quarter. Selling, general and administrative expenses, which included litigation-related expenses, were $3.2 million compared to $2.9 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2016, and up sequentially from $2.4 million in the preceding quarter. Litigation-related expenses in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 were $45,000, up from $43,000 in the previous quarter and down from $222,000 in the same period a year ago. Lee-Lean Shu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, noted, "Our net revenues came in within the range of guidance that we had provided earlier in the fourth quarter. As anticipated, fourth quarter revenues were down sequentially due, in part, to an inventory correction at our largest customer that began in the third quarter and continued to affect fourth quarter sales. In addition, during the fourth quarter, we continued to see slowness in our primary telecommunications and networking markets and continued weak sales in Asia. However, fourth quarter gross margin came in well above our guidance at 54.8%, driven by a continuing favorable mix of higher margin products. We remain focused on expanding our market position in the high speed SRAM and low-latency DRAM segments, including the development of our extremely high performance SigmaQuad radiation-hardened SRAM products targeted at aerospace and defense applications, which we expect to introduce in the second half of calendar 2017. Meanwhile, we are continuing to devote substantial development resources toward the creation of a new category of products based on our patented in-place associative computing technology and intellectual property. These products will utilize massive parallel data processing capability to greatly improve computation, search and response time for use in a variety of 'big data' applications (including machine learning and deep convolutional neural networks ("CNNs")), computer vision and cyber security." Sales to Nokia (Alcatel-Lucent) were $4.2 million, or 40.0% of net revenues, during the fourth quarter, compared to $4.5 million, or 39.5% of net revenues, in the prior quarter and $4.3 million, or 35.1% of net revenues, in the same period a year ago. Fourth-quarter direct and indirect sales to Cisco Systems were $745,000, or 7.2% of net revenues, compared to $1.1 million, or 9.8% of net revenues, in the prior quarter, and $1.0 million, or 8.0% of net revenues, in the same period a year ago. Military/defense sales were 24.3% of fourth quarter shipments compared to 15.9% in the prior quarter and 19.5% in the comparable period a year ago. SigmaQuad sales were 53.0% of fourth quarter shipments compared to 54.2% in the prior quarter and 53.5% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016. Fourth-quarter fiscal 2017 operating loss was $(1.5) million, compared to operating income of $234,000 in the prior quarter and an operating loss of $(156,000) a year ago. The fourth-quarter fiscal 2017 net loss included interest and other income of $183,000 and a tax provision of $2,000, compared to $26,000 in interest and other income and a tax benefit of $43,000 a year ago; in the preceding quarter, net loss included interest and other income of $61,000 and a tax benefit of $53,000. Total fourth-quarter pre-tax stock-based compensation expense was $518,000 compared to $429,000 in the prior quarter and $463,000 in the comparable quarter a year ago. At March 31, 2017, the Company had $49.9 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments and $12.9 million in long-term investments. Outlook for First Quarter of Fiscal 2018 Looking forward to the first quarter of fiscal 2018, we currently expect net revenues to be in the range of $11.0 million to $12.0 million. We expect gross margin of approximately 55% to 57% in the first quarter. GSI Technology will review its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 and discuss its current business outlook during a conference call at 1:30 p.m. Pacific (4:30 p.m. Eastern) today, May 4, 2017. To listen to the teleconference, please call toll-free 888-576-4391 approximately 10 minutes prior to the above start time and provide Conference ID 7556552. You may also listen to the teleconference live via the Internet at www.gsitechnology.com, where it will be archived.

Lee-Lean Shu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, noted "Our net revenues came in within the range of guidance that we had provided earlier in the second quarter, and for the second consecutive quarter we were profitable at both the operating income and net income levels. As in recent previous quarters, our gross margin came in well above our operating model at 55.0%, driven by a continuing very favorable mix of higher margin products. That said, during the second quarter, we continued to see slowness in our primary telecommunications and networking markets along with continued weak sales in Asia and Europe. We remain focused on expanding our market position in the high speed SRAM and low-latency DRAM segments and developing new products based on our associative computing technology and intellectual property, obtained in our acquisition of MikaMona last year, to exploit large potential opportunities in big data, computer vision and cyber security. With improving prospects for ongoing profitability, promising new products under development, and a much expanded market opportunity, we are optimistic about the balance of fiscal 2017." Sales to Alcatel-Lucent were $5.7 million, or 42.8% of net revenues, during the second quarter, compared to $5.4 million, or 41.9% of net revenues, in the prior quarter and $3.5 million, or 25.6% of net revenues, in the same period a year ago.

ESChat is the nation’s leading carrier independent and secure PTT over LTE solution and is used by the U.S. Military, as well as federal, state & local law enforcement and first responders. SLA’s Mission Critical ESChat (MC-ESChat) will maintain compatibility with existing cloud and private ESChat servers and will also interoperate with 3GPP compliant Application Servers from all MCPTT vendors. Since 2008 ESChat has provided encrypted Push to Talk over Cellular capability to first responders. ESChat is available through SLA’s GSA contract and is also sold by U.S carriers Verizon Wireless and AT&T as well as numerous LMR radio vendors. The ESChat product is a fully integrated solution that includes AES-256 encrypted Push to Talk (PTT) Voice, encrypted group messaging (text and images) and both live and historical location tracking and mapping. The Mission Critical version of ESChat adds capability for users to operate on any FirstNet MCPTT Application Server while maintaining ESChat’s current carrier independent secure PTT service. Leveraging QoS (Quality of Service) offerings now available from U.S. carriers, ESChat is currently able to offer its customers the benefit of carrier integrated MCPTT plus the ability to interoperate between carriers. As the feature evolution of 3GPP MCPTT continues, ESChat will provide full compliance including eMBMS based multicast, IOPS, ProSe and IMS based Application Server interoperability. ESChat has also committed to participating at ETSI’s first MCPTT plugfest that will allow MCPTT vendors to test MCPTT system interoperability. Over the past 20 months ESChat has been tested by first responders on numerous FirstNet Band 14 deployments. These include FirstNet Colorado (2015 Alpine World Ski Championships and XPSLTE), New Mexico FirstNet (2015 and 2016 New Mexico State Fair, 2015 and 2016 International Balloon Fiesta and the 2016 Zozobra Festival), Harris County TX (2015 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo) and LA-RICS (2016 Tournament of Roses Parade). Additional events are planned for 2016 and 2017. “Using ESChat on the Band 14 public safety broadband networks has provided valuable insight to better serve first responders as they develop their FirstNet deployment strategies,” said Josh Lober, President SLA Corporation who makes the ESChat product. As public safety agencies begin the process of augmenting their LMR networks and/or transitioning towards LTE based MCPTT, P25 to LTE integration will play a key role in ensuring a smooth transition. ESChat’s ISSI interface to the P25 radio network is available as a service that is hosted locally or in the cloud. This capability provides a software-only interface that does not require an incremental capital investment. The ESChat implementation of the ISSI interface is full featured and supports multiple call types between the LTE and P25 networks including Private Calls, Group Calls and Emergency Calls. System-wide display of P25 and LTE unit ID’s is also supported. “As we prepare for release of Mission Critical ESChat, we will be able to leverage all our experience to provide the best fully integrated MCPTT and P25 solution available,” Lober continued. Further enhancing the interoperability experience is ESChat’s integrated location tracking and mapping capability. Currently, ESChat users on 3G/4G/WiFi networks can view the real-time location of their ESChat contacts and groups. ESChat is enhancing its ISSI offering to include the ability for the ESChat users to also view the location of P25 radio users. This feature set will provide the most advanced real-time integrated communication and situational awareness platform available. About SLA: SLA's ESChat (http://www.eschat.com/) is the leading solution for carrier independent secure Push to Talk (PTT) over LTE communications. SLA is celebrating its twenty fifth year in the wireless communication industry providing solutions for military, government, industrial and commercial applications.

Magnetic fields appear to be ubiquitous in astrophysical environments. Their existence in the intracluster medium is established through observations of synchrotron emission and Faraday rotation. On the other hand, the nature of magnetic fields outside of clusters, where observations are scarce and controversial, remains largely unknown. In this chapter, we review recent developments in our understanding of the nature and origin of intergalactic magnetic fields, and in particular, intercluster fields. A plausible scenario for the origin of galactic and intergalactic magnetic fields is for seed fields, created in the early universe, to be amplified by turbulent flows induced during the formation of the large scale structure. We present several mechanisms for the generation of seed fields both before and after recombination. We then discuss the evolution and role of magnetic fields during the formation of the first starts. We describe the turbulent amplification of seed fields during the formation of large scale structure and the nature of the magnetic fields that arise. Finally, we discuss implications of intergalactic magnetic fields. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.

Along with temperature and density, the elemental abundance is a basic parameter required by astronomers to understand and model any physical system. The abundances of the solar corona are known to differ from those of the solar photosphere via a mechanism related to the first ionization potential of the element, but the normalization of these values with respect to hydrogen is challenging. Here, we show that the values used by solar physicists for over a decade and currently referred to as the "coronal abundances" do not agree with the data themselves. As a result, recent analysis and interpretation of solar data involving coronal abundances may need to be revised. We use observations from coronal spectroscopy, the solar wind, and solar energetic particles as well as the latest abundances of the solar photosphere to establish a new set of abundances that reflect our current understanding of the coronal plasma. © 2012 The American Astronomical Society.

Recent measurements of Barlow et al. in a bluff-body burner revealed that local atom balances were not conserved. They attributed the observed higher C/H atom ratios to the preferential diffusion of certain species and longer residence times in the recirculation zones (RZs). For verifying this hypothesis, detailed calculations for the reacting flows in the bluff-body burner were made using UNICORN code incorporated with GRI version 3.0 chemical kinetics. A lean mixture (U = 0.77) of methane and air was used as fuel jet. Time-dependent laminar simulations resulted in steady RZs for fuel jet velocities up to 7.0 m/s. Similar to experiments, calculations also revealed nonuniform distributions for C/H atom ratio in the flame at all heights. Results were compared to the data obtained for an unstrained 1D flame. Simulations for the bluffbody flame were repeated after setting diffusion coefficients of every species equal to that of O2. In the absence of preferential diffusion, C/H atom ratio was found to be equal to 0.25 everywhere in the flame. For understanding the effects of flame stretch on C/H atom ratio, calculations were made for the double flames formed between the opposing jets of premixed methane-air mixtures at different velocities. Distributions of C/H atom ratio in the RZ-supported nonpremixed flame were investigated through performing calculations for the Air Force centerbody burner fueled with ethylene. Both the attached and lifted-flame conditions were studied for understanding the role of RZs in enhancing C/H atom ratio. It was found that the hypothesis proposed by Barlow et al. in general, explains the higher C/H atom ratios found in bluffbody flames. However, RZs are not found to enhancing the preferential diffusion effects. Instead, the sharp velocity gradients near the fuel jet in the vicinity of the bluff-body surface increased the removal of H2O. © 2012 The Combustion Institute.
