I am encouraged by the future growth that looks possible in the semi industry, one concern that I have had is the current long lead times for semiconductors (and many passives). In trying to bring new products into production I have seen lead times increasing from 3-5week to 6-12! I look forward to the increased capacity and an easing of supply. I am sure that much of the pain being experienced with supply is the reluctance of fabs to produce product and distributors keeping inventory and their overhead low. If the industry is projecting a ramp up on production capability that could spell good news ahead.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Timesí Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
