Micron is now the number-two company in memory, really a technology leader and always has been a leading technology company in the memory sector. And they are number five in terms of total size in the semiconductor industry - tremendously innovative company, and we have a broadly scoped collaborative development program, which includes DRAM technology development that builds on the five years of technology development we have done historically with Elpida.

And then adding to that, we're working with Micron in developing multiple different nonvolatile memory technology applications. In addition to Micron, our semiconductor partners include GlobalFoundries, which is one of the leading foundries. We have a program with them that's very broad in scope and has recently been focusing significantly on 14 nanometer product technology that GlobalFoundries calls 14XM, which is a move to three-dimensional transistor technology, or FinFET technology.

In addition to GlobalFoundries, we are working closely with Toshiba and SanDisk in three-dimensional ReRAM technology, which is a post-NAND-Flash nonvolatile memory, a technology that's slated to move into production over the course of the next few years.
