This is a good list to notice future acquisition targets. Good job fro bringing these firms to the public knowledge.

Nice list... interesting Achronix is at the top of A-list. They have been in the news lately with their decision to use Intel's fab business. The supply chain flow identified for Achronix's Speedster22i is all within the US locations end-to-end: http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-products/electronic-product-reviews/fpga-pld-products/4210286/Achronix-s-next-gen-FPGAs-in-Intel-s-22nm-process This may bode well for military and aerospace applications which require “on shore” silicon but is that volume big enough for sustaining Achronix? The supply chain solution has to change quickly to lower cost destinations if Achronix has to compete in the consumer products market. Dr. MP Divakar

It's great to see two Portland, Oregon area companies on this list - Avnera Corporation and Fresco Logic. The "Silicon Forest" is alive and well thanks to companies like this.

I looked at the site and checked into jobs. Sadly, all the technical jobs are in Taiwan or mainland China. Much of the Silicon Forest has been chopped into little chips and shipped to Asia.

Is there a summary of the companies that were on the previous list and folded? How many are there?

Maybe the best that one can hope for is a dump of all companies that have ever appeared on the list and let readers figure that out from their own research. Then you would still have to contend with name changes (e.g., Silicon Forest Labs became Lighthouse Technologies before its acquisition by Mentor Graphics, where the inFact verification technology originated) and relaunches (e.g., Space Codesign in Montreal; disclaimer: I am involved in the 2.0 version of that firm). By the way, I'm not sure if Lighthouse ever appeared in earlier editions of this EE Times list but I hope that Space will, next time!

Heard a rumor that SiBeam CEO stepped down (secretly). Not sure if it's true or not.

I guess I could do a super list of all the companies that have ever appeared on the Silicon 60.....they are dropping off the list fast at the moment due to acquisitions; OneSpin Solutions being the latest.

Umm, SpectraWatt? http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4219234/Intel-s-solar-spinoff-files-for-bankruptcy Seems like the promising companies are flaming out faster than you can get the list printed. I view the previous sentence as more sad than sarcastic.

Hello Peter do you know where this information was generated? I'm working with professors who are analyzing the behaviors of founders in the Silicon Valley region. Right now we are trying to find different areas to gather the information. Thanks!!
