If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense
and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12-b-25(b), the following
should be completed.  (Check box if appropriate)

         (a)    The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this
         form could not be eliminated without reasonable effort or expense;
[XX]     (b)    The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition
         report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, 11-K, Form N-SAR, or portion thereof,
         will be filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the

         The Registrant requires additional time to file the Form 10-K report
         for the period ended December 31, 1996.  On December 11, 1996 the
         Company filed a voluntary petition under Chapter 11 of the U.S.
         Bankruptcy Code in connection with the signing of an asset purchase
         agreement with Rockwell Semiconductor Systems, Inc.("Rockwell
         Agreement").  The Registrant is unable to timely file its Form 10-K
         report due to (i) the limited number of management personnel remaining
         at the Registrant as it continues to curtail its operations, (ii)
         changes in key management personnel during the last year, (iii) the
         significant change in the Registrant's business during the period
         covered by the report, and (iv) the demands associated with the
         Bankruptcy proceedings, the consummation of the Rockwell Agreement and
         winding up the affairs of the Registrant.  However, the Form 10-K will
         be filed on or before the date specified under Rule 12b-25.


(1)      Name and telephone number of person to contact in regard to this

               Donald V. Carloni           (408)                  526-0300
                    (Name)              (Area Code)          (Telephone Number)

(2)      Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of
         the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment
         Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months (or for such
         shorter) period that the registrant was required to file such
         report(s) been filed?  If answer is no, identify report(s).
                                                                 xx Yes      No
                                                                ----    ----

(3)      Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations
from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the
earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof? 
                                                                    Yes  xx  No
                                                                ----    ----

         If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both
narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a
reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.
