re: 10 fab tool predictions for 2011

Agreed. The outlook for economy is uncertain and there is a wide disagreement between analysts how the semi market will do in 2011/2012. In that context one would expect almost half of the trends to be negative (company D is going under, technology G is not going to be deployed)...A star is born??? common...Kris

I use World Fab Forecast from SEMI which predicts 23% growth for 2011. They were the first in Oct 2007 to predict a double digit decline in 2008 and they were the first to predict a growth rate of more than 60% in Feb 2009 when all others were around 20%.

Mark, 2008, 2009 and 2010 made you up predictions on nanoimprint technology. 2011 has no predictions at all on nanoimprint. What´s upp?

Slow 2011 implied by jumping ahead to 2012.

In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ 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.
