It is true that culture and IP barrier handicap have been important factors, but that can be changed with money. What they need is to develop a few chips for a couple of killer applications; rake in tons of money, then they will be on their way. There are a couple of good examples in Taiwan.

An eight reason can be lack of IP protection. Even a reputation for lack of IP protection makes it very difficult for Chinese companies to trust each other and form meaningful partnerships. Western SoC companies nurture a third-party IP vendor (TPIPV) ecosystem based on trust. TPIPVs can dramatically reduce time to market and investment required.

Hi, Gopal. I couldn't agree with you more. See the story: http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4396272/Innovations--borrowed--digested-and-re-invented--are-legit-

Wondered about this a bit too. I think it's Western monotheism vs. Eastern polytheism. Technology is still a crusade in a way.

I retired from Texas Instruments. During my tenure in the R&D Labs, if you did not fail at all you were just not pushing the design envelope enough. I worked on many failed products and some very successful ones. The Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology, that I worked on, took 12 years of internal R&D funding before they sold the very first chip. No other company, Chinese or not, could afford a long term project like this one. For any company to really succeed, the management must have long term goals in mind. By long term I mean many years, not just a few months.

Hasn't one of the persistent criticisms of Huawei been that a good portion of their growth has come from products whose IP has been copied or misappropriated from other firms?
