|Some people are obviously thinking that there might be a higher Offer - see today´s RNS re purchases by one David Newlands. Seem to recall that he was once Finance Director of MARCONI. How interesting.|
|Bids can be pulled as well. Banked mine. Good luck if you're holding.|
|Katie always used to reckon we'd see a bid approach from CSR....|
|Exactly hashertu - the irrevocables can be revoked if a new bidder offers 10% or more than the opening bid. Now look at some of the people that INNOVISION has been doing business with over the past few years - do you think that an increased bid is beyond thir capabilities?!|
|Nice. But I'm gutted. Been watching these for a number of years and had been building following the last RNS in the belief that they were now at a very exciting tipping point. Reckon we would have seen at least double the offer price over 12-18 months if a bid hadn't come through.
|go for TMC valued at 10 million only and a take over target for at least a pound , 300 percent marke up|
The irrevocable undertakings lapse if an offer over 38.5p is received.
Have a look at the opening position RNS for more detail.|
|It is not over until the fat lady sings! Anyone of INNOVISION´s customers has the financial muscle to come in with a higher bid and thus protect their trading agreements. Irrevocables can be revoked!|
|i am gonna look at bgo although its already gone up i think there is more to go for. I am looking for tech companies in areas that are going to be big in the near future and this could be another one|

|LWB, but not as a takeover target. Possible more rise on results|
|Thats the first bit of luck ive ever had !!!
Any suggestions for the next one|

|yipeeee...strange thing is this morning i woke up thinking wouldn't it be nice if INN were taken over and it came true...spooky. Anyway, hope that the same happens at SNG too:-))Glad i held onto these beauties:-)|
|That's 2 in a week for me. INN and ITK. :-)))|
|Well done Shuffle Man......I can't fault your timing!|
Sounds like an excellent company for the future. I have dipped a toe in today.|

Innovision unveils next-generation NFC phone technology
By Sarah Clark | NearFieldCommunicationsWorld.com | June 4th, 2010
XHello! If you're new here, you might want to sign up for our email newsletter or subscribe to our feed to get the latest NFC headlines delivered to your inbox.Adding NFC functionality to a mobile phone will soon cost less than a dollar, says Innovision's Stephen Graham, with 15% to 20% of all the handsets shipped in 2012 set to include the company's low-cost NFC technology.
INNOVISION: Gem 2 architecture can be implemented in 65nm and 40nm silicon
NFC technology specialist Innovision Research & Technology has unveiled a new version of its Gem NFC IP, a suite of designs, patents and know-how which together form a complete on-chip NFC sub-system designed to enable NFC functionality to be added at low cost to mass-market mobile phones and other devices.
While current generation NFC phones require a separate NFC controller chip to be built into the handset, Innovision's Gem NFC IP provides mobile phone chipset manufacturers with a way to build NFC functionality into their existing 'combo chip' products. Semiconductor companies such as Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, Broadcom, Marvell and CSR already offer these combo chips as a cost-effective way for phone manufacturers to add functions such as Bluetooth, WiFi, FM radio and GPS to their products and, with Innovision's know-how, NFC can also be added to these chips at a substantially lower cost - under US$1 compared to the $5+ cost of a standalone NFC controller.
This approach involves far higher set-up costs than a standalone chip solution, however, which means that the combo chip approach only makes economic sense when NFC is built into very large quantities of phones. Now, demand from phone manufacturers is strong enough that "several major semiconductor suppliers to the mobile phone industry" have licensed Innovision's Gem IP, the company's Stephen Graham has told NFC World, and "every single one of them is definitely strongly interested in NFC."
That demand will lead to the first phones featuring NFC-enabled combo chips hitting the market in 2012 and, says Graham, between 15% and 20% of all the handsets shipped that year will feature its Gem NFC IP.
After that, a second wave of low-end NFC handsets is expected to arrive eighteen months to two years later. While the first wave will see NFC being added to more expensive smart phones, the second will see NFC reaching both low-end devices and the ultra low-end phones aimed at the developing world. Here, because these phones don't usually include the functions offered by combo chips, NFC functionality will be built into the main baseband processor, finally making NFC phones affordable to all.
The new version of Innovision's Gem NFC IP is specifically designed to work with the chip technology mobile chipset manufacturers will be using from 2012. Version one of the technology was designed to work with the 3.6V power supply used in current phones; the new Gem 2, however, uses 1.8V which means it can be implemented in the 65nm and 40nm CMOS processes that chipset manufacturers will be using in 2012.
"Our aim is to open up the market to any semiconductor company, regardless of size and scale, that wants to develop low-voltage, low-cost stand-alone NFC controllers, or integrate NFC into SoCs [system on a chip] for mobile phones, PCs and consumer electronic devices," Graham concludes.
|well someone sees the significant upside potential here...100K buy just gone through:-)|
|Does anyone know what products this technology is used for? Is it one of the latest iPhone or similar mainstream items?|
|OK. I've been pretty negative on these based on not inconsequential market cap, piddly revenue and heavy cash burn. But this second contract has now got my attention. Could this be one of those 'inflexion points'? And could we see a story unfold not unlike that at IMG - with similar share price movement?
If 25p was justified by the market following the last contract then surely 30p is not unreasonable with this one?
