SAN JOSE Tessera Technologies reported total revenue for the first quarter 2008 of $59.4 million, up 21.2% year-over-year.
GAAP net income was $2.2 million, down 80.2% year-over-year, including non-cash charges of $4.5 million for stock-based compensation, $2.5 million for acquired in-process research and development, and $2.3 million for amortization of acquired intangibles.

Non-GAAP net income was $16.1 million.

“Our first quarter total revenue was driven by robust DRAM and wireless unit growth and included a favorable adjustment by one of our licensees,” said Bruce McWilliams, chairman, president and CEO for Tessera. “Demand for increased memory and functionality in both computing and consumer devices is driving broader usage of chip scale packaging in a wide range of applications. From a strategic perspective, as the features of digital still cameras and cellphones converge, we believe our platform of consumer imaging technologies is well positioned to help drive next-generation wireless devices. We believe this will generate longer-term company growth.”

Tessera guided for second-quarter revenue of $54 million to $56 million, which includes projected royalty and license fees of between $47 million and $49 million, $1 million above the company's Jan. 31 guidance.

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
