FUJITSU DEALINGS WITH SUN OVER THE THE SPARC MICROPROCESSOR

By CBR Staff Writer

We were impressed with their self-confidence and the common sense of their design, Fujitsu Microelectronics Inc vice president Kenichi Katashiba told the Wall Street Journal apropos his company’s dealings with Sun Microsystems Inc over the Sparc microprocessor, noting that Fujitsu decided to manufacture the part on the strength of one impromptu presentation by Sun’s Bill Joy in Tokyo: I only wish I had negotiated harder to get some stock warrants in return for making the Sparc; noting that Fujitsu was not aware when it agreed to make the part that three other companies would also be making versions he adds They move fast and never look back, and drop companies that can’t keep up…. – Sun is …an intriguing and challenging partner, but it requires us to reconfirm our partnership every time we meet.
