Trident Microsystems reported a drop in sales of 30 per cent for its second quarter but claimed it was on the road to reducing the shortfall. But the better it does, the more likely it is it will fall to market consolidation. The company said that it sold $20,652,000 worth of its product in Q2 1999, compared to $26,939,000 in the same quarter a year ago. That amounts to a loss in Q2 of $2,709,000. Trident is pinning its hopes on the Blade 3D chip it introduced last Comdex/Fall, said Frank Lin, the company’s CEO. It also has alliances with Samsung and wants to capitalise on the importance of the sub-$1,000 market. Other partners include AMD and Microsoft. The company was turning its fortunes round because it was the third consecutive quarter losses had declined, he added. Trident claims a big agreement with a tier one PC manufacturer to use its Cyber 9525D 3D embedded technology in notebooks and said it will soon announce a follup with 4Mb of SDRAM. ®
