Richardson RFPD Inc. today announced the launch of a new “microsite” to help design engineers incorporate Freescale’s rugged 50V LDMOS technology into either new or existing designs. The microsite contains a broad array of technical support material, such as white papers, reference designs, and links to ADS/AWR models.

All three of Freescale’s new high-power RF transistor products (300W, 600W, and 1.25kW) provide high-gain, high-efficiency, extreme ruggedness (VSWR 65:1), very low thermal resistance, and have been optimized for virtually any high-power ISM (Industrial, Scientific, Medical) or Broadcast application, including both CW and pulse operation.
Eastern Goldfields, Inc. (“EGI”) today announced the completion of its previously announced spin-off of Vantage Goldfields Limited (“VGO”), a gold mining and exploration company domiciled in Australia with operations in South Africa. The spin-off was effected through the distribution of VGO ordinary shares to EGI’s shareholders. EGI shareholders are entitled to receive six VGO ordinary shares for each share of EGI common stock that they own. Before the spin-off, VGO was a wholly owned subsidiary of EGI. As a result of the spin-off, EGI shareholders will become shareholders of VGO directly and EGI will no longer own any VGO shares. coal mill
The spin-off was undertaken pursuant to an exemption from registration under United States securities laws. Neither the spin-off nor the VGO shares have been registered with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. Accordingly, the VGO shares issued in connection with the spin-off are deemed restricted under United States federal securities laws.
There are, however, major concerns over the future of the Egyptian aluminium industry in the face of strong competition from new production capacity in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), where producers have capacities of around 1mn tonnes per annum (tpa). The state-owned smelter in Naga Hammadi, which currently produces just 23,000 tonnes of aluminium annually well below operational capacity will need modernisation and substantial expansion over the medium term in order to remain operational and efficient.
BMI estimated apparent finished steel consumption growth of 16% to 8.37mn tonnes in 2010, with domestic crude reaching 6.31mn tonnes (up 14.5%, an increase from the 13.6% previous forecast) and hot rolled output reaching 6.8mn tonnes (up 14.5%, revised upwards from 12.5%). The industry performed ahead of pre-recession levels and compares favourably with the steel industry worldwide. The country has been operating well under full capacity, with a utilisation rate of just 65% of its 8.8mn tpa potential. Even without further capacity expansion, Egypt has the potential to grow by over 50% using currently operating plants. BMI expects annual crude output growth to be sustained at 10-14%, with 2015 volumes set to near 11.2mn tonnes. Although this represents a 77% increase over 2010 estimates, it will still not be enough to cover domestic demand, which is set to grow by 56% to around 13.06mn tonnes in 2015. stamp mill
