Thanks for this article. I know how many of people feel about Steve Jobs. But we need to judge the CEO based on what they have accomplished and the immediate impact that they have on society. There’s no question that Steve Jobs, what he did in 2010, should have been on this list. I have to strongly agree with many of the others readers comments; this is not a good list. Many readers will read this list, and delete it from their memory. What does that tell you, it’s a bad list?

Foxxcon in the list makes the list unbalanced and like fellow "eetians" I too feel Steve Jobs should have made the list for sure. But having said that Yasushi of Renesas and Warren of ARM are worthy in that list.

Well start ups have there own share of problems,targets and results. I guess its always better to compare startups among themselves like List of best CEOs among start ups. It would be unfair for startups to compare with companies that have been established for long. Imagine comparing a startup with Motorola or freescale or Atmel or any other with satble market revenues and profitability.

There are some very promising startups in the list . But none of the companies/CEOs listed has made a serious impact in year 2010. And probably the only decent acquisition in semi space last year was of Beceem by Broadcom but they doesnt have anything special in 2010. Looking at it, its kinda sad that a 18 month old internet startup like Groupon is valued at 6B and 5-10 year old semi companies sell(if lucky)for 50-100m$.

Standing above 18 employees' blooding body regardless their race, gender, age or nationality? (please bear in your mind, 18 is jsut the official reported number) Half centry ago, Adolf Hitler did that to Jewish people, 30 years ago Mr Mao did that to chinese, Today, Mr Guo did the same to Foxconn's employees. Tomorrow who is going to be the next turn? Humanity, it should not be ignored by semiconductor industry.

@Patk0317, every year peter clarke publish a (updated)list of 60 emerging startups. The latest list is: http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4210527/EE-Times-updates--Silicon-60--list-of-emerging-startups?pageNumber=0 I have not been following the growth of any of these companies but i expect a mention of those companies which have either been acquired by big companies and are fueling their growth or been able to raise a substantial investment.
