We anticipated reduced demand in Q1 2007 for baseplates used in cellular telephone basestations as a consequence of accelerated demand for them in Q4 2006 and this was the case.
The structure consists of a support structure of a single stainless steel column, including baseplates and fixings, a top platform with handrailing, pedestal and access ladder.
The upside volatility in Q4 was primarily the result of sharply increased demand for baseplates used in cellular telephone basestations.
Demand increased for flip-chip heat spreaders, motor controller baseplates, and wireless basestation components compared to the same period a year ago.
Typical products include housings, lids, baseplates, thermal planes and other structures used where reliability and/or weight are important considerations.
In Q2 2005 unit demand increased for flip-chip heat spreaders, motor controller baseplates and wireless basestation components and we achieved several design wins for flip chip heat spreaders and motor controller baseplates which we believe will generate growth in the near and intermediate term.
The rugged, compact FDSI modules mount in standard, field-mounted I/A Series baseplates - side-by-side with system Fieldbus (I/O) Modules - and communicate with the system controllers via Foxboro's high-performance (100 Mbps/1Gbps), ultra-high-availability field network.

It is designed to fit in dedicated slots on field-mounted baseplates adjacent to the Fieldbus (I/O) Modules.
The Company's products are typically in the form of housings, packages, lids, substrates, thermal planes, heat spreaders or baseplates, and are used in applications where thermal management and/or weight are important considerations.
Revenue growth was strongest in lids and heat spreaders, revenue from baseplates used in motor controllers also increased while revenue from cellular telephone basestations declined.
