Transmeta Corp., a processor technology developer and licencor, has disclosed that its engineers have been providing design services for Microsoft Corp. and Sony Corp.

Transmeta signed series of agreements with Microsoft in May 2005 under which the company provided the services of approximately thirty engineers to work on "a proprietary Microsoft project," Transmeta said in a 10-K form filed March 16 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to cover its 2005 financial results.

The company added that the work had been "substantially completed" and that they were negotiating the provision of additional services for 2006 although it did not necessarily expect the work to be at the same level as provided in 2005.

In the case of Sony, Transmeta said it provided the services of approximately 140 engineers to Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. and Sony Corp. under design services agreements entered into on March 31, 2005. The company said that although first stage contracts end on March 31, 2006, they expect to continue to provide services to the Sony Group.

Transmeta said that the two alliances are "strategic" although independent of and unrelated to each other. "We intend to continue to seek additional strategic alliance opportunities and related agreements with these or other parties to provide engineering services that leverage our microprocessor design and development capabilities."
